Upgrading from their predecessors and adding more to the line of their ‘gaming GPUs’, ASUS unveils the new RTX 2070 cards. While none of the GPU frequencies have been officially listed at this point in time, we can only hope for the huge performance boost that the custom cards from Asus have always brought, along with good thermal performance.
The following additions have been revealed so far:
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 ROG STRIX Series
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 DUAL Series
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 Turbo
The Asus ROG Strix Series
The ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 ROG Strix series fits in a 2.5-slot design, equipped with three fans and features a 6+8-pin power connector.
There are three variants of the STRIX series:
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 8GB ROG STRIX GAMING OC (ROG-STRIX-RTX2070-O8G-GAMING)
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 8GB ROG STRIX GAMING Advanced (ROG-STRIX-RTX2070-A8G-GAMING)
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 8GB ROG STRIX GAMING (ROG-STRIX-RTX2070-A8G-GAMING)
Asus Dual Series
As the name suggests, the 2-fan series will be the second addition to the ASUS family.
It has a 2.5-3 slot design and non-standard power delivery (6+8pin) and will be available in the following variants:
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 8GB DUAL (DUAL-RTX2070-8G)
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 8GB DUAL Advanced (DUAL-RTX2070-A8G)
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 8GB DUAL OC (DUAL-RTX2070-O8G)
Asus Turbo Series
This will be a single fan card with no other variants. The TURBO will also feature RGB LEDs next to the illuminated RTX logo. It’s probably going to be a budget RTX 2070 card looking at the single fan design.
The aftermarket Nvidia RTX cards as well as the founders edition are set to potentially have a 35-45% performance boost as compared to their previous generation GTX 1070 versions. These RTX cards will also have 6 Giga Ray/s of real-time ray tracing performance. The RTX 2070 is slated for release sometime in late October, so we will definitely see the cards from Asus come out after that. No pricing has been announced as of yet.
