The Test

Because NVIDIA is not productizing any other reference-quality GeForce RTX 2070 card besides the Founders Editions, which have non-reference specifications, we've gone ahead and emulated the true reference specifications with a 90MHz downclock and lowering the TDP by roughly 10W. This is to keep comparisons standardized and apples-to-apples, as we always look at reference-to-reference results.

    Does 2070 worth it vs 1070 for its Tensor cores? I would utilize the card on machine learning. In Final Words, this wasn't covered. It seems to me that 2070 is the cheapest solution in rder to get dedicated Tensor cores, which if I am not mistaken make a great portion of difference in the computational performance between these two cards. Opinions? Reply
