An ASUS employee has teased the GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua on social media along with its price. Originally spotted in an EEC filing back in July, the card appears to feature a thick cooling solution and might be a four-slot card. It only has two fans, but considering Noctua’s reputation and the large heatsink, the card should have impressive cooling performance. There’s no word on how many heat pipes it has.
Connectivity includes 3x DP and 2x HDMI ports. Logos from both companies can be seen on the card. There are 2x 8-pin power connectors, and it includes a backplate. Based on the RTX3070-08G-NOCTUA model name, it will likely feature 8 GB DDR6 memory, but other core specifications are unknown.
The employee says that the card will retail for 26 million Dong (~$1000 to $1100 ). This is much higher than the $499 MSRP of an FE, but it is consistent with the STRIX product line. It is unknown whether these cards will be sold in the US. ASUS could be testing the waters to see if interest is strong enough for a larger rollout.
ASUS’s Vietnameses sales representative has confirmed the existence of GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card featuring Noctua cooling solution…it looks like the RTX 3070 Noctua from ASUS is a test case to see customer’s response to their new lineup.
