I recently bought the RTX 4070 SUPER new for RM2.9K (OG MSRP was 3.4K, but they had a RM90 for 900 discount going on then) during the 2.2 Sales on Lazada.

It's the Gigabyte Eagle OC ICE Edition since it was one of the few models that i could trust to fit my case, and also decent enough in build quality. I intentionally avoided shorter cards like the MSI Ventus 2X since they are notoriously poor in component and build quality.

The card itself took 3 long weeks to arrive due to stock and availability issues. Apparently 4070 SUPERs are selling like hot cakes according to the vendor i was in touch with after they announced the shipping delay to me. For that price though, i was willing to wait.

I avoided the Ventus 2x even though it's much shorter since i read that MSI really cheaped out on components and the build quality is awful for the Ventus 2x line up for Ada in general.

Moving up from Turing, Ada is quite mind blowing to me in terms of how power efficient it is.

After using MSI Afterburner to undervolt and oc the VRAM, i can get faster than stock performance for less than 50% the stock TDP.

220W is baseline, after the tweaks it only consumes 140-150W at full load or so, but in actual gaming at 1440p60 locked it barely touches 70-100W most of the time.

At the 220W baseline TDP with 1.1V, the card can be pushed to beyond 4070TI stock performance with a simple 150 core clock OC and a +2000MHz MEM OC. The GDDR6X VRAM surprised me at how it was able to be pushed (almost 20% higher than stock).

Overall I am quite satisfied with the performance of this card in general at the target resolution i'm using which is 1440p.

Good buy at good price. Good OC too. Just monitor closely your temps as Giga Eagle have crap cooler https://www.techspot.com/review/2791-nvidia...rtx-4070-super/
"We also have the Gigabyte Eagle OC, another base model using a compact triple-fan cooler. This cooler, previously used on their standard RTX 4070, was one of the worst performers in our 4070 roundup, reaching a peak GPU hotspot temperature of 73°C at nearly 2,000 RPM.

Predictably, using this same cooler on a higher-powered GPU hasn't improved the results; in fact, it's even worse. The junction temperature hit 70°C, close to the hot spot temperature of the FE model, which is problematic as it resulted in a hotspot temperature of 85°C for the GPU. This is not ideal, and it's exacerbated by a high fan speed of 2,100 RPM, making this card both hot and loud at 38 dBA."

Dun listen to some craps ppl commented. Dun even think they hav been using or owed 4070s IRL to do comparison. It is a good buy and handsome white card. Giga did quite a good job even for their MSRP model.

Enjoy ur new gpu buddy

You seriously want to put your bet against Techspot/HUB? hmm.gif

define bad cooling for a 220w GPU. Lol

buying dream GPU is something to cheer about. No need throwing unnecessary comparison. Bad temp compare to what? 75c is high? Do u what is really poor cooling models for 4070 and 4070s?

I'm aware of the video which i watched after placing the order, so I did have some concerns tbf.

But after getting the card and applying the UV (0.935V/2730 MHz) and with adjusted fan curve, the card is whisper quiet and cool 24/7.

Out of the box fan curve/temps could be better with the stock voltage yes, but i never use stock voltage (1.1V) and core oc except for benchmarking and stress testing purposes.

My previous Turing card didn't even have zero fan ability (lowest fan speed was 30%), so this in itself is a huge improvement at idle.

Why dont you read Techspot review for the answers or else if your lazy can watch HUB video? Both links i given.

I never said its a bad buy but there are caveats to this particular card. I said the same thing for MSI Ventus 2X as well. No need to be so defensive for Giga if they deserve it.

To answer your earlier question, I got the card from SL Integrated on Lazada and couldn't believe my eyes when they had the 9 for 90 promo for all their listed 4070 SUPER cards for 2.2 CNY sales since those cards were still very new at that time.

As for the price increase (due to SST 8% hike etc), i haven't heard anything concrete yet, but i'm pretty sure every vendor will use that opportunity to tack on another price mark up to all cards.

I thought about the continuously depreciating RM, the upcoming added SST and other taxes, and ultimately that was what drove me to get this card back then during 2.2 sales instead of waiting any longer.

Yup as long as your aware and know how to control its weakness, its an alright card. Another Giga GPU weakness is poor PCB structural strength so for those triple fans I would strongly reco use GPU stand/holder and if you move PC around do take out GPU during transportation.

Of course I would also reco use the stand/holder for any triple fan GPU from any brand/AIB.

Nvidia’s 4060 Ti 16GB has dropped to the same price as an 8GB model

I hope it happens in Malaysia too
