EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 Black Gaming 8GB GDDR6 Video Card $762.29 + Delivery (Free with Prime) @ Amazon USA via Amazon AU

710

Best price atm I recon for a RTX 2070 and EVGA are known for premium products.
Use Cashback (5%) or shopback (8%) to earn Approx $55.36 (8%) making price to $706 delivered if you have prime, else delivery extra. You can get Prime trial for free though.

Good upgrade taken AMD Vega 64 or 56 were not available at good price during Black Friday Sales and 1080 or 1080 ti are almost non existing in AU markets .

Comparison:

  • RTX 2070 sits between 1080 and 1080 ti. Cant comment on comparison with AMD VEGA 64, but benchmarks shows it sitting a bit higher. Only down site is V-Sync premium for all monitors.

  • AU pricing on staticice is $9**.

OC Models are almost $80-100 extra in the same listing.

    I paid over $1k for my 1070ti early this year. 2070 is now less than $800…

  •  

    just a reminder - i clicked through the pics and noticed there isn't a back plate. you might not like it.

  •  

    This is roughly the MSRP of this card (an entry level 2070), it's just that no one else in Australia stocks it right now. There are other basic cards freely available here, including Gigabyte (in dual and tri-fan configs) and MSI, if brand or warranty program is a concern.

    Cashrewards is also set at 5% at the moment, though 8% back from Shopback is nice.

    All of these entry level cards have a power limit of around 115%, so overclockers should look to step up to affordable factory overclock models that either offer a 130% power limit (probably the EVGA XC Gaming, for no higher than $800 IMO) or, if you're confident in the quality of the VRM on your card and have dual VBIOS, flash a firmware (usually from another manufacturer) that supports this.

    A 10% off code on eBay will get you a cheaper card, more so with discounted gift cards (currently, that's another $25 off).

    •  

      Seems a good price to me? I have seen a local price close for another brand after ebay 20%, but are you sure that there are Australian sellers with several models with this as their day to day price? Can you please supply a couple of links?

        http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=rtx+2070&sp... - Starting at $720 + delivery (this is full retail)

        https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=rtx+2070&_... - 10% off, minus another $25 with discounted gift cards, so starting at $702

        https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/Product/ProductList.aspx... - Starting at $750 (no discounts or sales at the moment, but there was a $30 off code the other day)

        So there's quite a few around this point. The base MSRP for an RTX 2070 is US $500 pre-tax, or about $750 here, with a solid OC option going for US $550 (EVGA XC Gaming), or $820 here.

        Without the cashback, it's a bang average price. It's important to understand there are two GPUs for each RTX model: one for stock cards, and one for factory overclocked cards. There's very few stock cards available here right now, with the exception of the RTX 2070.

          Cool. But crap! I was holding out for an 2080, but at these prices this would do for a while and is a better investment than grabbing an overpriced RX580 and Vega 56 has all but disappeared and also gone up.

          I have been waiting since before the Mining boom.

          There must have been a drop recently. I am sure it is under a week since I looked and $800 was the better with some still hitting $1000 locally.

          re Newegg - Bloody Harvey Norman Tax! I better check B&H.

          Geez, what do I do? lol. There is still no real supply of RTX 2080 ti, so not much pressure to push the 2080 down from the top.

          •  

            @Major Mess: MSRP for the 2080 works out to be $1050, which is about what the 1080 was here at the start of last gen.

            There's already been several OC and basic cards at that price and below.

    I think my 980ti died today exactly 6 weeks outside of 3 years :/
    EVGA hopefully will honor as it's super close given delivery etc.
    i dont have high hopes tho

    Does this come with battlefield 5?
    How does one find out?

      By simply reading op's post

      •  

        The link that OP posted apparently only applies to cards bought via EVGA.com. I registered on the website but apparently, I'm not eligible to receive a code.

        The promotion should be available via Amazon, but I'm still unable to figure out where to receive my promotion code.

    Found the link here

    And how does warranty work on EVGA bought from Amazon US? I cant find exact policy

    • +3 votes

      word on the street is evga has international warranty

    • +1 vote

      Inernational warranty of EVGA products.

    •  

      Last time I bought an EVGA card was my 570.

      International warranty, card will be sent to Taiwan for repair and EVGA will pay for shipping. Turn around time is decent, last time I claimed it was a little over 1 week.

      Depending on fault they might instantly ship you back a refurb, which they did in my case and got a free upgrade in model (better cooling and factory OC) since the didn't have my base model in stock.

  •  

    Yup and OP mentioned it, in my excitement I obviously have not read this properly. So excited to upgrade from a 670Ti I guess

    Having said that EBAY doesnt have any cheaper GFX cards at the moment, though this seems to be the normal price on camelcamel, I guess the price of 9** is inflated. Having said that, still some savings here mainly in the form of lowish starting point, cashback as well as BF5

    • +1 vote

      that would be a big upgrade. good luck. I was waiting for AMD vega 64 and waited too long to finally bite the bullet on these.

    •  

      True. You cannot find good pricing of 1080 taken they are 2 years old. I know RTX in BF V wont be great on these cards and I am not counting on it.

  • +1 vote

    Yea RTX is few generations off, Im not sure if AA via Deep learning would be activated on BF V at all which would really mean buying this card on a promise, which I hate. Bottom line Im not sure whether to go for this card, simply because it is new and promises new things which seem to be highly anticipated or get a 1080Ti which, at the moment blows the frame rate out of the water from 2070 but is an older model and should drop in price soon, right. I feel im getting sucked into the promise of new tech but it traditionally takes a few iterations to get it going smoothly and some never take off properly like SLI. I dont think ray tracing makes much difference or is achievable by the RTX generation.
    Actually after writing this and consolidating my research for the past few weeks now I feel I should go for a used 1080Ti instead lol just for the frame rate at an affordable price.

    •  

      1080 ti is better than this card. RTX wont be great in this card as even 2080 goes RTX at 80-85 fps on 1440p. You can switch on and see, but might not play with it.

      You wont get 1080 ti at this price in Aus. unfortunately and might be expensive even used.

      •  

        1080 Ti is about $800 on eBay a few days ago and it's not much better.

        1080 Ti is at the end of it's driver optimisation whereas 2070 will only get faster.

      •  

        2080 is better value than the 1080ti(unless there is some demonstrable non gaming app that performs better on the ti?), and uses way less power.

    •  

      some never take off properly like SLI

      NVlink on the 20 series cards is much better than SLI.

  •  

    Wonder if the 2060 will be much cheaper

    Glad I read the comments to talk me out of buying one. I’ll stick with my 1070 and wait for a cheap 2nd hand 1080ti

    Note that this card uses the lower binned 400-1A chip

    https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/evga-rtx-2070-black.b6...

    Companies put the higher binned, more expensive 400A-1A chips into their OC models and sell them for $80+ more.

    https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3386-nvidias-secret-gp...

    •  

      Ultra is almost $150 extra.Will it be worth the upgrade? I will stick to base model as not sure $150 extra for ultra is worth it.

      • +2 votes

        I personally don't think it's worth an extra 20% cost to get a binned chip. Just wanted people to know that the days of buying the base model with good cooler and OC it yourself are gone with this card as there are actual mhz/power/temp advantages to the OC models that use the 400A-1A chip.

        The performance is about 115% of a 1070ti, 108% of a 1080, 92% of a 1080ti. Note that the drivers will likely improve over time as opposed to the 10 series. If the price/performance matches up then buy it.

  •  

    I was looking at this card but EK says it wont be releasing a waterblock for it.

  •  

    Interested in opinion of the comparative value and advantage of freesync offered by the Vega series. If it's that much more useable and doesn't cost an additional hefty premium for a gsync monitor, maybe a Vega 64 for $612 @ Newegg is something to weigh up.

    •  

      That is a good price for vega, but only issue is the blower version along with total price coming as 668. For approx 30 more dollars, u r getting much better card.

      Freesync is a plus for sure.
      Warranty on evga along with its performance above vega 64 are the driving force IMHO. Not sure about international warranty on AMD

    •  

      It depends what games you play most as well. There can be big performance differences between Vega and GTX/RTX from title to title.

    Prices have been all over the place over the past week or so. I picked up the 2070 XC Gaming for $816 less $50 cashback, price dropped by $20 a few days after I purchased and now escalated to $872!

    • -1 vote

      Please note that XC gaming has same hardware, only the chip is OC. If you want superior chip, it will be ultra.

      •  

        The XC Gaming has the better-binned chip. If you're putting a third-party cooler on, it's probably the best OC option in Australia.

        That being said I think the gap between most non-A chips and a custom solution would be 10% at most, so if you're paying more than $800 to deliver the card and cooler, you're arguably wasting your time.

  •  

    Where did you get thr 2070xc from?

  •  

    I'm trying to look for GPUs. But at the moment, they are saying 1070, 1070ti, 1080 etc are discontinued and is being replaced with the RTX! As I'm not familiar with the RTX, are they still good? Thanks

    •  

      RTX is a farce, especially the 2070. If you want value the RX 580 is currently a steal.

    •  

      RTX will improve over time and drivers optimisation for cards will happen as well. If you can afford, get a good card.

      •  

        Lol man reviewers they are saying they should not have put rtx on this card as its barely playable on the 2080 and 2080 ti. Driver improvements will undoubtedly improve things but 2070 will struggle still.

        •  

          It will, you can play it by changing some settings. Thing is that this card is compared to 1080 and for that price or little extra, you are getting a latest card.
          RX580 is not even in comparison and not sure why you recommended that for value. Its like advising someone to by i20, when they are looking for a SUV.

          •  

            @Gaggy: Staying with the analogy, if all you can afford is an SUV with a 1.8 litre engine, perhaps an SUV just isn't the right car for you.

            Yes you can make your game look like crap and get playable frames just so you can have rtx low on, but this is just stupid and pointless. The game would look much better with rtx off and other settings high.

            The current thinking around this card is only buy if you can get for a similar price to the 1080. If this price is similar then by all means. Dont pay extra for pointless rtx though.

            •  

              @Budju: New 1080 are not available anymore right?

              •  

                @Gaggy: What about 1070 Ti, currently best value card for high performance. You are basically paying over $200 for an additional 2 frames by going the 2070, money that could be used else where to get way better gains.

                •  

                  @Budju: Enlighten me where it is available at that price..
                  Though finally I agree that you have some valid point. RX580 was a bad suggestion.

                  •  

                    @Gaggy: Nah the 570/580 right now are the best 'value buy', if you care about that. If you do want a decent 'value buy' at the higher end, the 1070 Ti is that now that the 1080s seem to be gone.

                      spending $568+ delivery with almost no warranty compared to spending $14* extra after cashback for a better card with international warranty and whose drivers will be optimized and will have better resale in 2 years.
                      Anyway lets agree to disagree. Lets move on.

    Any of you guys bought this?

    •  

      I just bought this. I was already planning on buying Battlefield V, so this sorta sealed the deal for me.

      •  

        Hey TheThoughtFraud, I just bought it today. When is yours coming?

        •  

          Hey mcdev, mine arrived today.

          FYI, I'm having issues redeeming BF5. OP's link only seems to apply cards bought via EVGA.com but if you look at some listings on Amazon, the promotion seems to apply "sometimes".

          I'm still unsure if I'm eligible or not, but I do not have a promotion code in my box or my email AFAIK.

          •  

            @TheThoughtFraud: I spoke with an Amazon customer support and according to them, you explicitly have to have the promotion listed on the item that you order.

            Nvidia's marketing is very misleading because they prioritize certain criteria (e.g. like the dates). I will be chasing this up with Nvidia further.

            •  

              @TheThoughtFraud: That's messed up. I was hoping for a BF5 along with this.. seems like I wont be getting it then :/ Can you send me a PM then we can communicate there and see how things go?

              •  

                @mcdev: @mcdev I opened a chat with Nvidia and then again with Amazon.

                Amazon are saying that amazon.com.au aren't partnered with Nvidia to offer this deal, even though the actual card is sold by "Amazon US".

                I've wasted enough time trying to get my "free" copy of BF5. My time is worth more than this.

                Feel free to reach out via a pm. You can always try your luck, but I'm finished with this.
