Asus Launches GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with Blower Cooler

Autumn is here, leaves are falling and it is time to unpack your leaf blowers. But being a maker of computer hardware, Asus can produce different kinds of leaf blowers: graphics cards with blower type coolers. On Monday, the company introduced its Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti board, one of the industry’s first RTX 3070 Ti products with a turbine-based cooler.

Designed to compete with the best graphics cards, the Asus Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti carries Nvidia’s GA104-400 graphics processor with 6144 CUDA cores clocked at up to 1800 MHz in OC boost mode as well as 8GB of 19 GT/s GDDR6X memory. The board has two eight-pin auxiliary power connectors as well as four display outputs (three DisplayPort 1.4a, one HDMI 2.1), just like many competing RTX 3070 Ti cards.

From performance point of view, the Asus Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is similar to other cards based on the same GPU and equipped with 8GB of GDDR6X memory. The main selling point of the product is its blower cooling systems that allows you to use the board in small form-factor systems or install several Turbo GeForce RTX 3070 Ti cards into one PC.

Blower type coolers have a controversial reputation. They were first introduced to the PC world with Nvidia’s GeForce FX 5800 Ultra graphics card that did not impress with performance, but surprised gamers with how loud its turbine was. Over time, developers of GPUs learned how to properly implement blower coolers to ensure that they were not as loud as the FX 5800 Ultra. At the same time, they started to build cooling systems with two or three fans that provided a similar level of performance without producing excessive noise levels, so blower type coolers became rare beasts in the early 2010s.
