ASUS Launches A Blower Version Of RTX 4070 With "Turbo" Moniker

While multi-GPU setups are a thing of the past among the PC gaming community, it still stands strong among workstation users. Despite that, blower fan designs in desktop GPUs have dwindled in numbers ever since; though the recent rise of AI also gave blower fan GPUs a small resurgence in popularity.

Blower fan GPUs are useful in space-constrained situations, such as when multiple GPUs are stacked together in one system. AI’s demanding computing requirements also made such a use case suitable, and this is where ASUS’s RTX 4070 Turbo comes in.

Like any other RTX 4070 GPU, it comes with the same 5888 CUDA cores, 12GB VRAM, and a relatively efficient 200W power draw. Stack these cards together and you get a fairly large pool of VRAM at your disposal, which AI software will happily consume (and compute with it). The card itself comes with an understated dual-slot design, with the power connector now placed sideways for easier access.

It’s also worth noting that since this is a blower fan design, you won’t be able to push the card beyond its stock specifications due to the inherent cooling limits of these cards. Granted, there’s not much headroom available in most modern GPUs these days, and in such cases, the power draw is not going to be any different than factory clocks. However, this is not designed with gaming in mind, so chasing clocks and frames simply isn’t this card’s priority.
