The TUF GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. An all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings. Fan rotation has been optimized for reduced turbulence, and a stop mode brings all three fans to a halt at low temps. Beneath, a thick heatsink keeps thermals under tight control. Additional features, including TUF components, Auto-Extreme Technology, and a backplate vent make the TUF a proper powerhouse. For builders looking for a new "old faithful", this card has your back.
- 2nd Generation RT Cores: experience 2x the throughput of 1st gen RT Cores, plus concurrent RT and shading for a whole new level of ray tracing performance
- 3rd Generation Tensor Cores: get up to 2x the throughput with structural sparsity and advanced AI algorithms such as DLSS
- This GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card with LHR (lite hash rate) delivers 25 MH/s ETH hash rate
- Axial-tech fan design has been newly tuned with a reversed central fan direction for less turbulence
- Dual ball fan bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs
- Military-grade capacitors and other TUF components enhance durability and performance
- Axial-tech upgrades
TUF Gaming cards leverage ASUS's tried-and-true Axial-tech fan design, with three fans working in tandem to satisfy the thermal demands of NVIDIA's high-octane design. The fans rely on dual ball fan bearings to ensure consistent performance and increased longevity compared to sleeve bearings and other bearing types.
- MaxContact technology
To get heat up off the die and into the heatsink array, ASUS has engaged MaxContact technology to polish the surface of the heat spreader and improve smoothness at the microscopic level. The extra flatness allows for better contact with the die for enhanced thermal transfer.
- 2.7-slot design
The heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card's large, 2.7-slot footprint.
- TUF components
Components are selected for TUF Gaming graphics cards based on their durability and performance. In addition to top-shelf chokes and MOSFETs, capacitors that meet military-grade certification make the TUF stand tall amongst the competition. The components are soldered to the PCB using the advanced Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process. Smooth joints on the rear of the PCB and the elimination of human errors ensure each graphics card meets ASUS's rigorous specifications. Finally, to ensure flawless performance when it counts, the cards are subjected to a grueling 144-hour validation trial.
- It's cooler out back
The underside of the card reveals a host of improvements. Most of the rear is swathed in a protective metal backplate that prominently features a wide vent. The vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the GPU cooler. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect ports and provide a more secure mount.
- Functional front
The top-side RGB element can be customized to display a range of aesthetic and functional effects and also synced with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting. To fulfill the power demands of the GeForce RTX 3070, two 8-pin connectors are present, along with onboard LEDs that light up if PSU PCIe power connectors are not plugged in correctly.
