Read the bit-tech review on the Palit GeForce RTX 2070 Dual…

At Nvidia’s RTX launch event, the biggest surprise and easily the most well received news was the GeForce RTX 2070. Its $499 entry MSRP (which has become £459 here) drew cheers from the in-house audience, perhaps unsurprising next to the $699 and $999 starting MSRPs for the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti (even higher for Founders Edition cards). This symbolises just how much the ceiling of the hardware market has been raised in the last half decade or so, with graphics cards being perhaps the most obvious example (pricing for the GTX 970 just four years ago started at £259, yet now almost £500 draws an excited response). We’re in no way saying $499 is a small sum, but it’s certainly a much more realistic figure for many people looking to make the jump early onto the latest GPU technology. Read the full review here.

If you’re shopping with a GPU budget of around £500, your choice is pretty the RTX 2070, the GTX 1080, and the RX Vega 64. We’d say the results here show quite clearly that the RTX 2070 is the best of that bunch, offering slightly higher frame rates and lower power consumption. The precise benefits of Turing and RT cores annoyingly remains very hard to gauge right now, but the promise they hold is at least exciting, and they’re of course exclusive to the RTX club.
