Some of the RTX 2070 reviews have arrived though you can expect a slew more TU106 based GPU models arriving in the near future.  The MSRP of this card is similar to the GTX 1080, so the burning question is; can it match the performance and not just mimic a slower card with the addition of Tensor Cores? 

Start out with Ken's review, and then head off to [H]ard|OCP to check out the RTX 2070 GAMING Z from MSI.  Does it make sense to pick up the RTX 2070 right now, or grab a highly overclocked GTX 1080?  Only one way to find out

The RTX 2070 hasn't received anywhere near the coverage of its two bigger siblings but MSI might just change that with this announcement.

The RTX 2070 DUKE 8G OC GAMING Z comes with dual TORX Fan 3.0 in their TWIN FROZR 7 cooler , and is able to run completely silently at low temperatures thanks to the Zero Frozr design.  This card will be compatible the MSI Dragon Center, which, with a single click,   optimizes your GPU, SSD, monitor and network settings for gaming.

The DUKE incorporates three TORX Fan 2.0 into its TRI-FROZR cooler and will be the choice of those suffering from RGB overload.  The ARMOR shares much of it's design with the GAMING Z, however it is wearing MSI's trademarked suite of ARMOR.  Last but not least is the AERO, which features a blower design similar to the Founders Edition cards, good for smaller cases which need to remove heat from the case ASAP.

The Tech Report had a chance to see what the MSI Twin Frozr VI cooler can do to a GTX 1070, they have just wrapped up a review of the Gaming Z edition of that NVIDIA card.  It comes with a respectable frequency bump when you enable OC mode, 1657 MHz base and 1860 MHz boost.  When they tested it under load the GPU stayed below 70C so there should be room to push the card further.  Check out the full benchmark suite in their full review.

"Nvidia's second Pascal graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1070, aims to set a new bar for graphics performance in the $379-and-up price range. We put MSI's GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming Z card through the wringer to see how a more affordable Pascal card performs."
