NVIDIA’s GTX 10 series launch can be marked out as one of their most enthralling yet – surprise, intrigue and excitement have all been pivotal factors in the release of the GTX 1060, 1070, and 1080. And while the aftershocks of such prominent unveilings can still be felt these many weeks after, the enthusiasm hasn’t died down. Today, we turn to ASUS for a detailed look at their STRIX GTX 1070.
Under observation today is the ASUS STRIX GTX 1070 – a graphics card which bears the renowned DirectCU III cooling system. This cooler, like the versions before it, seeks to bring down temperatures and do so while maintaining low-noise levels. Along with the cooler we also have some additional features which should help to separate this GTX 1070 from others – twin fan headers are situated at the end of the card and an additional HDMI 2.0 resides on the rear IO panel. On top of all this, ASUS has also modified the GPU clock speed and bumped it up by 10% in a bid to boost framerates and hopefully allow this card to take the spotlight by climbing up the performance charts.
