●    Signature Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM Fans: ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition features two Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans that deliver top thermal performance with lower noise decibels.
●    Optimzed Airflow: The Noctua Edition’s bespoke heatsink is optimized to fully leverage the airflow characteristics of Noctua fans.
●   Unique ASUS Features: The ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition offers several signature features of ASUS cards, ensuring performance and durability at every level.
FREMONT, California, October 4, 2021 — ASUS today announced the ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition in collaboration with Noctua. Inspired by the dedication of the PC “DIY” modding and enthusiast community, the graphics card incorporates optimized airflow and sustained high performance with Noctua’s signature aesthetic to deliver incredible performance.

Optimizing Airflow - New Heatsink Design:
The ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition incorporates a newly designed heatsink and a pair of Noctua's signature NF-A12x25 fans to optimize airflow characteristics. A massive, 2.3-slot heatsink was developed in collaboration with the R&D team at ASUS and Noctua engineers. 

"Using our extensive thermal R&D experience, we’ve created a new GPU heatsink that's tailor-made for the performance characteristics of the state-of-the-art NF-A12x25 fans," said Kent Chien, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the ASUS Multimedia Business Unit. "Our teamwork gives noise-conscious gamers and Noctua enthusiasts a unique graphics card that maximizes heat dissipation per decibel of noise emitted, all in a package that coordinates perfectly with other Noctua products in a DIY PC."

Bridging Silence with Performance:
The collaborative development process resulted in achieving top thermal performance per decibel of noise emitted from a graphics card. The ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition produces a 10 dB lower sound pressure level when controlling power limit, ambient temperature, and thermal junction temperature. 

"By using our NF-A12x25 fans and collaborating to fine-tune the heatsink for use with them, this card achieves a significant boost in performance-to-noise efficiency," added Noctua CEO Roland Mossig. "ASUS’ line-up of GeForce RTX 3070 cards is already outstanding, but we’re confident that the Noctua Edition will be the cherry on the cake for noise-conscious customers."

Unique Collaborative Aesthetic & Features:
The graphics card incorporates signature ASUS features with unique characteristics present in Noctua's aesthetic. The card includes a custom brown shroud for the duo of NF-A12x25 fans, Noctua's signature brown color scheme, and a secure mounting system. ASUS and Noctua logos are included on the front and sides of the shroud, along with subtle graphics on the full-length alloy backplate.

The ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition is outfitted with all signature features present in ASUS graphics cards. The card features a dual-mode BIOS switch which comes preset to Quiet mode for an optimal balance of noise and performance. The card also includes a 0 dB idle mode which keeps noise levels to a minimum under light graphics loads. Exclusive Auto-Extreme assembly technology assures precise placement and clean soldering of onboard components, and a vented backplate design gives heated air a shortcut into a case’s natural airflow path. A 144-hour validation process ensures optimal performance out-of-the-box. 

ASUS GeForce RTX™ 3070 Noctua Edition will be available worldwide from mid-October 2021. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
