ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX™ 3070 8GB GDDR6 is a smart collaboration between ASUS and EK® FEATURES NVIDIA Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors: The building blocks for the world’s fastest, most efficient GPU, the all-new Ampere SM brings 2X the FP32 throughput and improved power efficiency. 2nd Generation RT Cores: Experience 2X the throughput of 1st gen RT Cores, plus concurrent RT and shading for a whole new level of ray tracing performance. 3rd Generation Tensor Cores: Get up to 2X the throughput with structural sparsity and advanced AI algorithms such as DLSS. Now with support for up to 8K resolution, these cores deliver a massive boost in game performance and all-new AI capabilities. Features an EK® Water Block designed for custom loops. A protective backplate prevents PCB flex and trace damage. A stainless steel bracket is harder and more resistant to corrosion. A single-slot design fits in small chassis and leaves room for additional PCIe devices. Auto-Extreme Technology uses automation to enhance reliability. Let it Flow The ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX™ 3070 cards are the result of collaborative engineering efforts between ASUS and EK®. A compact PCB reinforced with a metal backplate and steel mounting bracket creates a durable foundation for EK®’s full coverage block. The entire package takes up just a single slot, bringing the tangible benefits of water cooling to small form factor builds, heavyweight workstations, and showcase rigs. 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. Protective Backplate That’s so metal! The PCB is reinforced by an aluminum backplate that adds structural rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect components and trace pathways from damage. Stainless Steel Bracket Steel yourself The mounting bracket of the ASUS EKWB has been beefed up with 304 Stainless Steel that’s harder and more resistant to corrosion. High-performance Water Block Go with the flow A central inlet split-flow cooling engine designed by EK® channels coolant over the GPU and other key components without restricting flow. The design efficiently dispatches large thermal loads and saves prized slot space. Remarkable Construction A feat of engineering A nickel-plated copper cold plate prevents oxidation and ensures efficient heat transfer. On top, the cast acrylic cover makes a spectacle of coolant as it courses over the GPU and other components. High-quality EPDM O-rings and brass standoffs are arranged throughout to ensure proper sealing and an easy installation. Aura Sync Outshine the competition The ASUS EKWB graphics card features an addressable RGB strip that spans the length of the block. Armoury Crate software allows complete control and customization of the lighting colors and effects. Build with other Aura Sync components to enable uniform lighting across your entire setup. Single-slot Design So much room A compact single-slot design increases compatibility with other PCIe peripherals and even allows multiple ASUS EKWB cards to be stacked in a system. Software GPU Tweak II The ASUS GPU Tweak II utility takes graphics card tuning to the next level. It allows you to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory frequency, and voltage settings, with the option to monitor everything in real-time through a customizable on-screen display. Advanced fan control is also included along with many more features to help you get the most out of your graphics card.
