MSI Gaming Z RTX 2070 Graphics Card Review

MSI Gaming Z RTX 2070
The RTX launch has been packed with impressive graphics cards these last few weeks. We’ve seen new records being set for performance, and also some new ones for highest prices. I love the 2080 Ti, but its price is a kick in the pants, and the RTX 2080 is a much more promising price to performance ratio for those preparing for RT and DLSS style features. However, at the “entry” level of the RTX range is the RTX 2070. Offering big performance, and a much more wallet-friendly price, this is likely to be the mass-adoption card of the RTX range.
Now, we have the latest MSI Gaming Z model in for testing. It comes with a massive Twin Frozr 7 cooler design, factory overclocked speeds, and a fist full of RGB for good measure. It’s ticking all the right boxes for me, so let’s get it on the bench and see what it can do!
