Asus’ GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards are now available, with the ROG Strix RTX 4070 leading the pack. But you might have seen reviews for the RTX 4070 Dual edition card on day 1; since that model comes with NVIDIA’s MSRP of $599 for the RTX 4070. Expect the TUF RTX 4070 to be priced above $600, and the more premium RTX 4070 ROG Strix could be priced at $700 or more (depending on the retailer). Both the Dual and TUF models use the good-old 8-pin power connector, while the ROG Strix uses the new 16-pin 12VHPWR connector. More details from the official news release are below.
ASUS Announces Four NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Cards
ASUS today announced four new NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics cards: the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4070, TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070, ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 4070, and Dual White GeForce RTX 4070.
The GeForce RTX 4070 GPU includes all the advancements of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, including the new standards in gaming, such as DLSS 3 neural rendering and real-time ray-tracing technologies. Starting at $599, the GeForce RTX 4070 runs most modern games at over 100 frames per second at 1440p resolution.
Dominate in style with the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4070
The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4070 offers the same incredible engineering as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, but at a more affordable price. At 3.12 slots thick and 338.9 mm long, this card provides plenty of surface area on its MaxContact heatsink for airflow while utilizing the new cyberpunk design and ultra-rigid structure of its larger siblings. A 16-pin power connector ensures compatibility with the latest 12VHPWR PSU standard, and an adapter is included to ensure compatibility with other power supply. These cards also feature three new 11-blade Axial-tech fans that can push 31% more air volume and 56.3% more static pressure than their predecessors on the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080. A massive vented backplate ensures superior airflow, and 0 dB technology keeps the cards completely silent under lighter workloads.
All must-have Strix features are here as well: gamers can choose between performance and quiet modes with a Dual BIOS switch; connect PC case fans to two FanConnect II headers; and light up a rig with a ring of ARGB tail-lights compatible with Aura Sync. Meanwhile, reliable power delivery and time-tested build quality through the ASUS Auto-Extreme manufacturing process ensures this card will stand with users for years to come.
Performance and reliability meet in the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070
ASUS also offers a TUF Gaming variant of the GeForce RTX 4070, complete with the same powerful GPU as the Strix version, with a slightly thicker heatsink and shorter card design. A wide vent on the high-strength aluminum backplate improves airflow compared to previous-generation models. At 3.15 slots and boasting the new 11-blade Axial-Tech fans, users won’t be left wanting for cooling potential. Plus, the shorter 301 mm length offers wider case compatibility.
The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 also offers the Dual BIOS switch and a redesigned ARGB TUF logo along the shroud for a touch of flair, alongside the military-grade capacitors and Auto-Extreme manufacturing quality all TUF cards are known for. If gamers want a durable card that will prove its worth time and time again, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 stands firm in its commitment to long-lasting gaming performance.
Create the perfect build with all-new black and white Dual GeForce RTX 4070 GPUs
For the first time since the release of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 Series family of graphics cards, ASUS is proud to announce that ASUS Dual cards are back in the mix. Now available in the standard black color tone and a new white version, these cards are the perfect match for more economical or small-form-factor builds. Redesigned with a new look for the 40 Series, the Dual cards evoke the space age with retro-futuristic style elements, including a semi-transparent view onto the heatsink at the top of the card. For builders who have a more subdued sense of style or do not need RGB, the Dual GeForce RTX 4070 is a perfect fit.
Premium features like an all-aluminum backplate, 11-blade Axial-tech fans, and a Dual BIOS switch are present in the Dual cards. But as their names suggest, the Dual GeForce RTX 4070 only has two fans, giving the card a total length of just 267.1 mm, offering much greater compatibility with compact systems. Featuring a single 8-pin PCIe® power connector, the Dual GeForce RTX 4070 can be easily deployed into an existing build.
