ASUS Shows Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Line-Up
Even though the more affordable Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards haven’t released yet, third-party manufacturers are already showing their line-up of different cards. One of those is Asus, who has proudly presented its series of RTX 2070 cards. The company has unveiled three different variants, each with a different cooling solution, specific features, and most likely different clock speeds as well. The images were first shown by Videocardz.
The fastest and most expensive variant of the three is the Asus GeForce RTX 2070 RoG Strix. The card features RGB lights, a triple fan cooling solution and is quite large. It takes up 2.5 PCIe slots, something to take into account if you’re working with limited space. With a length of 12 inches, this card won’t fit in every case as well. Asus is praising the three Wing-blade fans, which only kick in if the GPU reaches temperatures of 55 degrees Celsius and above. In other words, you won’t be hearing the fans spinning in idle. In terms of connectivity, this RoG Strix version has a single HDMI 2.0 port, a USB Type-C port and a triplet of DisplayPort 1.4 connections.
Another version is the GeForce RTX 2070 Dual. This card features a slightly less aggressive design and is shorter to fit in more cases. As the name suggests, this graphics card is equipped with two fans, which have a semi-passive working as well. Notably, the RTX 2070 Dual is thicker than the Strix version, taking up the width of 2.7 PCIe slots. Connectivity-wise, the Dual is identical to the Strix but has two DisplayPort inputs instead of three.
The most modest version of Asus’ RTX 2070 line-up is the Turbo, which has around the same dimensions as the Dual and also the same inputs ébut uses a sleeker-looking single-fan back blowing cooler instead.
Unfortunately, the specific clock speeds of these three cards haven’t been released yet – although we should definitely hear more about that in the coming weeks. Specific availability and pricing details also haven’t been announced, only that they’ll release somewhere in October.
