ASUS Announces ROG Strix, Dual, and Turbo GeForce® RTX 2070 Gaming Graphics Cards


VR-ready gaming graphics cards include new cooling features for exceptional performance

TAIPEI, Taiwan, September 22, 2018 — ASUS today announced Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix, ASUS Dual and ASUS Turbo graphics cards that are based on the new NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2070, which features support for high-speed GDDR6 memory and VirtualLink technology that enables quick, single-cable connections for next-generation VR headsets.
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs have reinvented graphics and set a new bar for performance. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture and the revolutionary NVIDIA RTX platform, the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. This is not only a whole new way to experience games — it’s the ultimate PC gaming experience.
“Our new GeForce RTX GPUs are ushering in an amazing new generation of games and immersion, and we're incredibly happy that ASUS continues to bring a legacy of experience and innovation to the industry,” said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA. “Each ROG and ASUS series meets the needs of a variety of gamers who will undoubtedly appreciate the updated designs and new cooling technology that will help drive their PC gaming experiences.”

ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2070

The ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2070 keeps Turing cool with three unique Wing-blade fans that have hubs that are about 9% smaller in order to accommodate larger fan blades. The card is also equipped with a myriad of premium features such as a metal brace that reduces tension on the PCB, Aura Sync-compatible RGB LEDs, and FanConnect II headers that allow hybrid fan control that accounts for both GPU and CPU temperatures.

Wing-blade Fans

The ROG Strix and ASUS Dual GeForce® RTX 2070 graphics cards feature patented ASUS Wing-blade fans. This technology boasts higher air pressure, reduced noise levels, and IP5X-certified dust resistance. For those who love silence, the fan controllers also support a 0dB mode that stops the fans.

Auto-Extreme Technology

All ROG Strix graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme technology, an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry. Traditionally, soldering of through-hole and surface-mounted components has been performed in separate stages. Auto-Extreme technology allows all soldering to be completed in a single pass, reducing thermal strain on components and avoiding the use of harsh cleaning chemicals. This results in a better-quality product while reducing environmental impacts, including a reduction in manufacturing power consumption.

ASUS Dual GeForce® RTX 2070

The ASUS Dual GeForce® RTX 2070 adopts a 2.7-slot footprint to accommodate a larger heatsink, because bigger is better. The overall surface area of the cooling array is more than 50% larger compared to previous-generation designs. The improved heat dissipation provides more overclocking headroom for enthusiasts and an amazing plug-and-play experience by allowing lower fan speeds while gaming.

ASUS Turbo GeForce® RTX 2070

The ASUS Turbo GeForce® RTX 2070 is designed from the ground up for systems with multiple GPUs or other airflow-restricting scenarios. It incorporates a host of subtle design optimizations that improve airflow through the shroud and increase reliability. Upgrades include an 80mm IP5X dual-ball bearing fan and a new shroud design that allows more air to flow into the cooler, even when it’s pressed against a glass chassis panel or another graphics card.
