2024 is off to a good start with the launch of the latest Nvidia RTX 40 SUPER series giving gamers more options to choose from on their next GPU upgrade. Expanding those pool of upgrade options are various models from partner brands such as the one that we have now for review, the Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL graphics card. It’s the brand’s entry-level, MSRP offering of its RTX 4070 SUPER line.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER

The Nvidia RTX 4070 SUPER has the same $599 launch price as its non-SUPER counterpart, meaning that we’re getting an upgrade in terms of specs and of course, performance. The RTX 4070 SUPER gets a 20% increase in CUDA, RT, and Tensor core count resulting in 10% higher TGP from 200W on the RTX 4070 to 220W on the RTX 4070 SUPER. Nvidia also managed to increase the boost clock, albeit minimal to 2480 MHz from 2470 MHz but considering the higher core count, it’s still a welcomed improvement.

Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL – Unboxing and Overview

Palit retained its original packaging design on its RTX 40 SUPER series cards as opposed to using a different color shade to distinguish them from non-super counterparts.

The Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL is longer than both our Founders Edition and Twin X2 variants which are also two-slot cards but not by much.

Unlike most MSRP and entry-level variant cards, the Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL surprisingly has RGB lighting underneath the Palit logo. Its RGB lighting can be customized via the Palit Thundermaster software.

Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL Synthetic and Productivity Benchmarks

3DMark Firestrike and TimeSpy

3DMark is the go-to benchmark for gamers because of the ability to share and compare results online. We test GPUs both in DX11 Firestike and DX12 Timespy to get a gauge of the performance.

Blender

Blender is a widely used, free, open-source 3D creation suite. It supports the whole 3D pipeline process from modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, and even motion tracking. Blender has become a standard for CPU benchmarks with the BMW27 and Classroom Scene most used. This prompted the company to release Blender Open Data Benchmark in 2018, a benchmark-specific version allowing users to run a preset benchmark and share the results online like 3DMark.

VRAY 5

V-Ray Benchmark is a stand-alone version of V-Ray developed by Chaos Group. It is designed to test the CPU and GPU by rendering sample scenes at a fixed amount of time. V-Ray is a plug-in mostly utilized by 3D computer graphics software applications mainly for industrial design, product design, architecture, film, and video game production. V-Ray is not limited to 64-threads as it supports multi and mega-threading. 

GeekBench 6.2.2

Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL Gaming Benchmarks

RETURNAL

Returnal is one of the most technologically advanced game since the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. Released last April 2021 on PS5 and February 2023 on PC, it uses Unreal Engine 4 and supports multiple technologies such as Ray Tracing, DLSS, VSR, and FSR.

COUNTERSTRIKE 2

CounterStrike 2 or CS2 is a the successor to the now retired CSGO and now uses the Source 2 Engine – the same engine used on DOTA 2. CS2 is a great FPS game to test out CPU performance. Our benchmark process uses a the replay function of the game.

DOTA 2

Dota 2 is a good repesentation among F2P titles especially MOBAs and RTS as it lands on the demanding side of the spectrum. Its gameplay and quality of life updates are far more frequently than most F2P titles thanks to its vast popularity. Our benchmark sequence is based on a replay of OG vs. Gaimin Gladiators in the ESL ONE Berlin Major Finals Game 4 from the team fight that happened from 23:00 to 24:00. 

SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony is one of the most popular PC port titles last 2022. It’s one of the few modern game titles that support upscaling technologies FSR, DLSS, and XeSS making it a great title to use for benchmarks.

F1 23

F1 23 is the official video game of the 2023 Formula One and Formula 2 championships developed by Codemasters. F1 2023 is the sixteenth installment in the franchise and uses the Ego Engine 4.0. F1 233 is a good representation of racing games thanks to its realistic graphics and fairly demanding spec requirements as well as support for Ray Tracing and the latest upscaling technologies such as DLSS, XeSS, and FSR.

ASSASSIN’S CREED: MIRAGE

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the latest Assassin’s Creed game from Ubisoft making it the thirteenth major installment in the franchise. It uses the AnvilNext 2.0 game engine and is the very first AC game to support the latest upscaling technology such as XeSS, FSR, and DLSS.

Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is arguably the most hyped game of 2020. Developed by CD Projekt Red, the dystopian open-world, action-adventure RPG sports is one of the most demanding titles to date. Cyberpunk 2077 also supports three Ray Tracing settings as well as DLSS which makes the game a great tool to measure Ray tracing performance for both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.

CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE

The latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise is a sequel to the much-loved Modern Warfare game that launched in 2019. Call of Duty Modern Warfare II is one of the most demanding titles to date, pushing the latest hardware from Intel, AMD, and Nvidia. CODMW2 is one of the few games that comes with the DLSS feature without Ray Tracing.

Far Cry 6

Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL Temperatures and Power Draw

Despite being larger than the other two-slot RTX 4070 SUPER GPUs, the Palit RTX 4070 SUPER performed the worst out of all our RTX 4070 SUPERs with a peak temperature of 80°C making it our hottest GPU alongside the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT.

Power Draw at 220.169W is inline with the RTX 4070 SUPER’s ‘rated TGP of 220W.

Performance Summary Conclusion

Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL Review PH
Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL Review PH

The Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL performs pretty much in line with other RTX 4070 SUPERs in our test suite even beating our RTX 4070 SUPER Founders Edition in some cases. Unfortunately, that comes at the cost of temperatures. To be clear, 80 degrees for a GPU isn’t a big deal especially when you’re not dropping frames. But that leaves you with little headroom for overclocking should you need the extra performance and of course, once you get less airflow with dust.

The Palit RTX 4070 SUPER offers decent aesthetics, at least compared to our Twin X2 variant, and RGB lighting that isn’t common with entry-level, MSRP cards. That said, the Palit RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL tries to be a jack of all trades by getting points in aesthetics, features, and performance as opposed to other entry-level GPUs compromising on every department apart to maximize performance. If you lean towards the latter, then this card isn’t for you.

Those looking for a well-rounded card that can fit any build and are looking to tweak their GPU to compensate for the high temperatures, then the Palit RTX 4070 SUPER retailing at Php 36,995 is a steal deal – so much that the aforementioned trade-off is worth taking considering the lower than SRP savings you’re getting.
