Asus in collaboration with Noctua announced the launch of Asus GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition. Previously, it was expected that everything would be limited to the fans and the design, but the press release advises that Noctua has helped the company to improve the GPU cooling system, that is, the design of the radiator.
According to the company, at medium speed, the GPU reduces its operating noise by 15 dBA, while at maximum speed it is reduced by 9 dBA compared to the original model, reducing the temperature by 1ºC, so they have basically focused on reducing the loudness to the maximum, while maintaining thermal performance. Of course, the most important of all, the price, and sadly we don’t not a word, but it will be high.

The RTX 3070 Noctua Edition will also come in two variants: standard and factory OC. The stock model comes with a 1755MHz boost clock in the card’s OC mode, while the factory overclocked version will come with a 1845MHz boost clock in the same mode.
“Using our extensive experience in thermal R&D, we have created a new GPU cooler tailored to the performance characteristics of their state-of-the-art NF-A12x25 fans,” said Kent Chien (Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Multimedia Business Unit from Asus).
“Customers have been asking us to create cooling solutions for GPUs for a long time, so we are excited and honored to partner with Asus to make this happen. By using our NF-A12x25 fans and adjusting the heatsink for use with them, we have achieved a significant increase in efficiency in the performance-to-noise ratio, “said Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO).
“Asus’s GeForce RTX 3070 was already, without a doubt, an exceptional card, but we are confident that the improved cooling solution of the Noctua Edition will be the icing on the cake for noise-conscious customers.”
