ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 TUF Gaming OC review
The turning point goes to ASUS, for which we are evaluating the TUF Gaming RTX 3070. ASUS is strongly promoting the TUF series as a new high-end brand. And we have to admit; With the series, they have certainly taken a step or two forward this year. Loaded with 5888 shader cores, it has the ability to play a bit intoxicating as well. This product will meet the performance levels of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and will even be replaced in due course.
On September 1, 2020, NVIDIA announced three first Ampere graphics cards in its first launch wave. A week before the announcements, the specifications of the GeForce RTX 3070, 3080, and 3090 took a turn. The number of shader cores mysteriously doubled beyond everyone’s expectations. The GPUs are manufactured on a Samsung-derived 8nm node. This process is a further development of Samsung’s 10 nm process. No EUV is yet applied in production. On the first wave of announcements, the GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 would be released first, and surprisingly, the GeForce RTX 3070 would also arrive around the same time frame. Ampere’s first consumer launch includes the GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6, RTX 3080 10GB GDDR6X, and the 24GB GDDR6X-based premium flagship, the mighty Mo, tested today, the GeForce RTX 3090. The lineup doubles ray tracing performance almost with Gen2 ray tracing cores and tensor cores with 3rd iteration. These cards will all be compatible with the PCIe 4.0 interface and offer HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a. Most important, however, is the exorbitant number of shader processors (referred to as CUDA cores by NVIDIA) exceeding the 10K marker for the flagship product, nobody … Not even we saw this coming. With around half this number of shader processors, we now meet the NVIDIA GA104 GPU, which was originally only intended to be used in the GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards. And despite a lower segmentation card, it still contains a large GPU chip. The 3070’s GA104-300-A1 GPU ignites over 17 billion transistors. For comparison: A GeForce RTX 3080 is listed with 8,704 shader cores, and the GeForce RTX 3090 (GA102) has 10496 shader cores. In this test, we look at the Founder Edition GeForce RTX 3070, paired with 8 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory. A product with a boost clock of 1730 MHz and sheer muscle power will make you smile, a lasting one.

The ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming TUF OC Edition is the new hipster in the ASUS series. TUF is heavily promoted and is a cross-brand association with other devices and components. Because of this, ASUS had to keep improving things to warm you up to this TUF ecosystem. And they certainly came with this beautiful, dark looking product that features high quality workmanship with dual BIOS, quiet acoustics and excellent working temperatures. Equipped with this NVIDIA GA104 GPU, it has a beautiful 5888 shader core activated and is coupled with 8 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory. ASUS has also given the card a semi-passive design. The three fans begin to spin and cool down as soon as the GPU warms up. You will find that it has 2x 8 (6 + 2) pin power connectors. We rated the card with a power consumption of 235 W, which corresponds to 220 W for the reference design. This indicates that it does one notch better on standard watches. With a weight of almost 1500 g, this product has a size of 301 x 143 x 44 mm. The out-of-the-box boost clock for this product is a pretty high number of 1830 MHz (1730 MHz is the reference clock), and the memory is clocked with a reference of 14 Gbps (1 Gbps reference).
Watch out; ASUS has two SKUs that both have the same name. the SKU named TUF-RTX3070-THE8G-GAMING is what we are testing today as an OC edition, the TUF-RTX3070-8G-GAMING clock (without this O), which is slower at 1755 MHz. We are of course referring to the standard clock frequencies. Realistically, if you want my opinion, just go for the cheaper one, say, since the differences in performance are small at best these days.
