Asus Unveils The New GeForce GTX 1070 Expedition
Asus has added a new addition to its Expedition line of graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1070 Expedition.
Asus says that the GeForce GTX 1070 Expedition has been rigorously stress tested to ensure durablity. Asus claims the card underwent 144 hours of testing by Asus iCafe Labs. In addition, the card underwent two hours of reboot testing and 15 hours of 3DMark testing. Assuming Asus’s reports are accurate, this device should last you a long time.
The GeForce GTX 1070 Expedition features 8GB of GDDR memory, a base clock speed of 1607 MHz, a boosted speed of 1797 MHz, and a memory clock of 2000 MHz. In terms of cooling, it features two dual-ball bearing fans and the 0D8 fans are set to a GPU temperature level which Asus claims will ensure they are silent though we have not personally tested this particular model.
The card was made using Asus’ Auto-Extreme Technology, an entirely automated production process. Asus claims that the Super Alloy Power II tech used in the card’s production provides increased efficiency, less power loss, and a quieter card. In addition, Asus will bundle the card with a 1-year XSpilt GameCaster license. The license is a nice bonus, but we don’t really see it swaying anyone since there’s plenty of free software and services that will allow you to capture and stream video.
