ASUS KO GeForce RTX™ 3070 OC Edition 8GB GDDR6 Review

Posted by: Admin Created: 3 years ago | View: 7013

A Touch of Flair
ASUS KO GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs host the new NVIDIA Ampere architecture with some extra shine on performance and durability. Twin fans leverage our Axial-tech design for efficient cooling at low dB levels. Enhancements such as space-grade lubricant, Auto-Extreme Technology, and enduring capacitors keep KO composed for the most demanding scenarios. And a unique shroud takes on gold and silver faceplates with fully-customizable ARGB accents.

Axial-tech Fan Design: Better, faster, stronger
Originally the result of R&D efforts for top-end ROG graphics cards, Axial-tech fan design features a smaller fan hub that facilitates longer blades and a barrier ring that increases downward air pressure. The enhanced efficiency allows the fan to keep things cool at low RPMs, resulting in less overall system noise and increased component lifespan.

0dB Technology: Quiet intelligence
To eliminate unnecessary noise, a stop mode halts all fans when the GPU temp falls below 50 degrees and power consumption is low.

Space-grade Lubricant: Improved lubricity
Infused with a durable lubricant often found in aerospace applications, these sleeve bearings deliver a quieter acoustic profile than dual ball bearing designs and match their durability.

2.7-slot Design: Sink your heat into this
The KO leverages a 2.7-slot design to gain more heatsink surface area. The extra thermal headroom increases overclocking potential and allows fans to run at even lower speeds in light scenarios.

Dual BIOS: Choose wisely
Do you prioritize low core temps or low noise levels? Performance mode lets the fans spin up to keep the card cool all the time. Quiet mode keeps the same power target and top-end settings, but offers a less aggressive fan curve for quieter operation at medium temps. For even more customization and control, check out our GPU Tweak II software.

Auto−Extreme Technology: Precision automated manufacturing
Auto-Extreme Technology is an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry by allowing all soldering to be completed in a single pass. This reduces thermal strain on components and avoids the use of harsh cleaning chemicals, resulting in less environmental impact, lower manufacturing power consumption, and a more reliable product overall.

Enduring Capacitors: Outlast the opposition
The KO GPU VRM features capacitors rated to last up to 2.5 times longer than the industry standard.

Vented Backplate: It’s in the vents!
The PCB is reinforced by an aluminum backplate that adds structural rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect components and trace pathways from damage. A vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being cycled back into the GPU cooler.

Stainless Steel Bracket: Steel yourself
The mounting bracket of the KO has been beefed up with 304 Stainless Steel that’s harder and more resistant to corrosion.

Unique Design: Polished Shroud
Gold and silver faceplates laced with customizable ARGB lighting give the KO a unique aesthetic fashioned for gamers who prefer to unabashedly showcase their rig on the desktop.
