ASUS Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti: A blower fan graphics card that only takes up two slots
ASUS has released a blower-style version of the RTX 3070 Ti, a card that NVIDIA unveiled in June. Incidentally, the Turbo RTX 3070 Ti is almost indistinguishable from the RTX 3090 model that ASUS discontinued a few months ago.
The RTX 3070 Ti relies on a GA104 GPU with 6,144 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6X VRAM running at 19 Gbps on a 256-bit bus. By default, the Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti has a 1,770 MHz boost clock, matching NVIDIA's reference specifications. However, ASUS has included an OC mode that increases the boost clock by 30 MHz to 1,800 MHz.
The Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti also has an HDMI 2.1 port, three DisplayPort 1.4a ports and HDCP 2.3 support. Additionally, the Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti measures 268 x 113 x 39 mm, making it a two-slot card.
ASUS has positioned the card's twin 8-pin power connectors on its front edge though, which could be prohibitive for some Small Form Factor PCs (SFFPC). On the other hand, their positioning could prove useful for cable management in larger builds.
ASUS has listed the Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti on its website. Unfortunately, it has not revealed how much the card costs, nor where it will be available to purchase.
