ASUS TUF GeForce RTX 4070 Ti OC Review: NVIDIA’s Ada Lights Up CES

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti: Game Performance, DLSS 3 And Latency Tests

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker launched at the end of last year, and as usual, Square-Enix updated its free character creator and benchmark tool. The free utility checks in at approximately a 2.21GB download. It will test your PC's ability to run the game at various settings, and presents a final result with an overall rating upon its conclusion. We tested Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker at 1440p and in 4K UHD, with maximum image quality settings.

The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti landed about in the middle of the pack at 1440p, but it dropped down a few rungs with the resolution increased to 4K. Ultimately, its performance is about on par with the Radeon RX 6950 XT here, though the RTX 4070 Ti had a much better minimum framerate at both resolutions.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Benchmarks

The open-world Assassin's Creed Valhalla is an action-adventure game in which the player controls Viking raider Eivor Varinsdottir as he and his compatriots battle Anglo-Saxons through various regions. The games uses the AnvilNext 2.0 engine, which requires DirectX 12...

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla had the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti trading blows with the Radeon RX 6950 XT, depending on the resolution. Once again though, the GeForce offered much better minimum framerates.

Forza Horizon 5 Benchmarks

Forza Horizon 5 is the latest edition of the popular racing game franchise. The game features much larger maps than its predecessors, with more detailed models, and higher graphics fidelity in general. Forza 5 leverages the proprietary ForzaTech engine and DirectX 12...

Forza Horizon 5 had the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti sandwiched between the recently released Radeon RX 7900 XT and previous-generation Radeon RX 6950 XT at both resolutions.

Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is an action-adventure game where you play as Star-Lord and lead the rest of the Guardians from mission to mission. The game’s minimum requirements call for a Radeon RX 570 or GeForce GTX 1060-class GPU, but it also supports some of the latest graphics technologies, including DXR and DLSS.

When running at 1440p, this game runs into a CPU bottleneck, but things change significantly with the resolution cranked up to 4K. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti lands just behind the GeForce RTX 3090 here, but still offers triple-digit framerates at 4K with maximum in-game details -- when ray tracing isn't employed, at least. Speaking of ray tracing...

With ray tracing enabled in this game, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti jumps up a few rungs and finishes just behind the previous-gen flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Far Cry 6 Benchmarks

Next up, we’ve got some benchmark scores from Far Cry 6, the latest installment in the storied franchise. Like its predecessors, Far Cry 6 is a fast-action shooter set in an open world environment with lush visuals and high graphics fidelity. The game is set on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara, ruled by dictator "El Presidente" Antón Castillo, famously played by actor Giancarlo Esposito. We tested all of the graphics cards here at multiple resolutions using Ultra Quality settings to see how they handled this AAA title.

We bump into another CPU limitation at 1440p in FarCry 6. At 4K though, we have a somewhat expected spread with the new GeForce RTX 4070 Ti finishing just between the Radeon RX 6900 XT and 6950 XT cards.

With ray tracing enabled, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti once again climbs the ranks, this time putting up the exact same scores at the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, while outpacing the Radeon RX 6900 series cards.

F1 2021 & F1 2022 Benchmarks

F1 2022 is Codemaster’s latest Formula One racing simulation, and like previous version of the game, it sports impressive visuals. This latest addition to the franchise supports DirectX 12 with ray tracing, and it incorporates support for a number of AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and NVIDIA technologies (like DLSS). We tested the games with its Ultra High graphics preset, with ray-tracing and TAA enabled at a couple of resolutions to see what the graphics cards could do.

We tested both F1 2021 and F1 2022, which has support for NVIDIA's DLSS 3 technology, including AI Frame Generation. F1 2021 had the new GeForce RTX 4070 Ti finishing just behind the Radeon RX 7900 XTX, but ahead of all of the previous generation cards -- almost. Once again we see a tie between the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3090 Ti when the game is running at 4K.

In the newer, more taxing F1 2022, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and 3090 Ti trade blows yet again. Here though, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti drops in behind the Radeon RX 7900 XT, whereas that wasn't the case in F1 2021.

DLSS 3 & Latency Tests With The ASUS TUF GeForce RTX 4070 Ti

We also tested F1 2022 and the various DLSS 3 and FSR modes available within the game and tested performance and latency with the latest version of Fortnite...

dlss 4070 ti perf

DLSS and FSR resolution scaling in its various modes boosts F1 2022 performance significantly. The new GeForce RTX 4070 Ti ends up trailing the other cards, and AI frame generation doesn't have much of an impact, due to the already high frame rates.

Finally, we did some performance and Latency testing with Fortnite. Please note, while looking at the chart above, that framerates are off to the right, and latency is off to the left.  As you can see, there aren't huge deltas separating the cards in terms of framerate (due to the area we tested in, to try and get repeatable results in an on-line only game like this), but the latency results are stark. Normally, all other things being equal, higher framerates result in lower latency, but that is not the case here. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti offers significantly better latency characteristics versus the Radeons, though it obviously trails the higher-end RTX 4080.
