ASUS introduces the GeForce GTX 1070 Turbo

ASUS introduces the GeForce GTX 1070 Turbo

Ten days after launching the GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo, ASUS has done the same to its slower sibling – the GTX 1070. Of course the new card is called GeForce GTX 1070 Turbo but if you expect a ton of differences, then don’t – the GTX 1070 Turbo is pretty much the same as the GTX 1080 Turbo save for the memory and the clock speeds.

The GTX 1070 Turbo comes with a lateral cooling solution that is attached to a custom-designed PCB by ASUS that draws power from a single 8-pin PCI-E power connector. The video card comes with the Turbo word in its name but there’s nothing turbo inside (just like the GTX 1080 Turbo) – instead the new ASUS video card sticks to NVIDIA’s reference clock speeds of 1503 MHz for the GPU (1683 MHz GPU Boost) and 8000 MHz for the installed 8 GB of GDDR5 memory. The card also comes with a 4-pin PWN case-fan header, which lets you sync a fan to the card’s temperature, controllable via included software.

No word on pricing as of now.
