ASUS unveils their ROG Strix and TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti GPUs
ASUS’ ready for Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti launch with new ROG Strix and TUF Gaming models
Nvidia has started to move to the more moderate end of their RTX 40 series lineup, with their new RTX 4070 Ti launching with an MSRP of $799. For that, Nvidia boasts RTX 3090 Ti beating performance on a graphics card with a lower power draw and a lot of new feature add-ons.
Headlining ASUS’ RTX 4070 Ti lineup is the ROG Strix RTX 4070 Ti, a 3.15 slots thick and 336mm long graphics card that is only marginally smaller than its larger RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 siblings. Rocking three of ASUS’ new 11-blade Axial-tech fans, ASUS’ new RTX 4070 Ti Strix boasts that it can push 31% more air volume and 56.3% more static pressure than the company’s old ROG Strix RTX 3080, highlighting a major generational shift in cooling performance.
Out of the box, ASUS’ ROG Strix RTX 4070 Ti models ship with two BIOS options that include a performance mode and a quiet mode. This graphics card also features Aura Sync compatible ARGB lighting and two FanConnect II headers.
The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4070 Ti offers powerhouse next-gen performance in a slightly smaller package than its larger siblings, with all the style and substance you’ve come to expect from ROG Strix. At 3.15 slots thick and 336mm long, this card provides plenty of surface area on its MaxContact heatsink for airflow, while retaining the new cyberpunk design and ultra-rigid structure of its larger siblings. It’s also rocking three of our new 11-blade Axial-tech fans, which can push 31% more air volume and 56.3% more static pressure than its predecessors on the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 — all at a lower power limit with similar noise levels. A massive vented backplate ensures superior airflow, and 0dB technology keeps your card completely silent under lighter workloads.
All of Strix’s must-have features are all here as well: choose between performant and quiet modes with a Dual BIOS switch, connect your PC case fans to two FanConnect II headers, and light up your rig with a ring of ARGB tail-lights compatible with Aura Sync. Meanwhile, reliable power delivery and time-tested build quality through our Auto-Extreme manufacturing process mean this card is ready to stand with you for years to come. For a more accessible card that still screams Strix, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is not to be trifled with.
Below ASUS’ ROG Strix RTX 4070 Ti is their TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti, which ships with a similar 3-fan heatsink design that is 3.25 slots thick and 305mm long. This model also features a dual BIOS switch with performance and quiet operating modes, and a more limited ARGB lighting setup that is restricted to this GPU’s TUF Gaming Logo.
Gamers can expect ASUS’ RTX 4070 Ti TUF Gaming Model to ship with lower pricing than its ROG Strix counterparts. Both GPU models are powered using a 12VHPWR connector, despite the fact that Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti could be amply powered by two more standard 8-pin PCIe power cables.
We’re also offering a TUF Gaming variant of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, complete with the same powerful GPU as the Strix version with a slightly thicker heatsink and shorter card design. At 3.25 slots with our new 11-blade Axial-Tech fans, you won’t be left wanting for cooling potential, while the shorter 305mm length offers wider case compatibility.
The unibody die-cast shroud shares the same structural strength as our TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 cards, while a wide vent on the backplate improves airflow compared to previous generation models. The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti also offers the same Dual BIOS switch and a redesigned ARGB TUF logo along the shroud for a touch of flair, alongside the military-grade capacitors and Auto-Extreme manufacturing quality all TUF cards are known for. If you want a durable card that’ll prove its worth time and time again, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti stands firm in its commitment to long-lasting gaming performance.
ASUS’ ROG Strix RTX 4070 Ti Gaming and TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti will both be available on January 5th at retailers worldwide.
