I realized some earlier rumours of an Asus x Noctua collaborative graphics card design closing month, however the one information we needed to cross on was once a string of textual content revealed in some EEC industry paperwork regarding a diffusion of new Asus merchandise together with the ‘RTX3070-8G-NOCTUA’.
The above textual content string was once a horny excellent indication of one thing brewing between the PC part makers. Asus and Noctua have labored carefully earlier than at the likes of the Asus ROG Ryujin 240 RGB AIO Liquid CPU Cooler, however that was once a low-key collab, with reference to Noctua design, contrasting the brand new graphics card which definitely screams ‘I’m a Noctua product – have a look at my owl face’.
Asus Vietnam shared the photographs you’ll see in this web page, however since it’s been a spoilsport and deleted all of the photographs and textual content, we’re fortunate that TechPowerUp has stored them interested by posterity. Above you’ll see the owl face of the brand new RTX 3070 staring again at you, flanked through Noctua and Asus emblems, however with its color scheme firmly plucked from the previous’s product heritage.
An angled view permits you to see how thick this graphics card is. TPU says that it is a triple slot design. Different options we will verify are that there are 3 DisplayPort connectors, two HDMI outputs, and twin 8-pin energy connectors. A backplate appears to be provide, however we wouldn’t have an instantaneous view of it, unfortunately.
The Asus x Noctua design does not appear to function RGB lights frills, its primary appeal goes to be quiet, dependable, capability. At the matter of look, I am certain some will to find it captivating, whilst others can be became off – however will most probably admit it is usually a good selection for a quiet efficiency PC construct.
Some concept of pricing was once equipped through Asus Vietnam, the native foreign money worth converts to approx US$1,140 or UK£850. I’m hoping those playing cards experience a greater destiny than the Asus Gundam RTX 3080 particular editions noticed in Vietnam.
