RTX 2070 Founders edition vs MSI Armour

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am running a GTX 1050ti and I'm looking to upgrade to a RTX 2070. I am NOT planning on gaming on it and it'll only be used to train neural networks (Deep Learning).
The MSI Armour is available for around 48k INR and the founder's edition is around 52k INR, the FE is overclocked and both have twin coolers. I don't have the budget for tripple cooler cards.
Which on do I go for?

FE will have better silicon allowing it to clock better. Whereas the armor will run cooler and quieter.

MSI for sure -  it does in fact run cool and quietly. Also, mine overclocks rather nicely with a +200Mhz core offset and +600Mhz on the RAM - I didn't even experiment any further on the RAM - that was just a first attempt and I stuck with that cause it works. According to a few reviews, most people can overclock to at least +170Mhz. But careful - older versions of MSI afterburner will behave a little bit odd - with the old nonbeta Stable version I could only tune in a +100 Mhz core clock but the result was about the same - a boost clock of ~2000 Mhz (mine settles at 2010 Mhz right now).
