ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 12GB GDDR6X – Review


The new ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 12GB GDDR6X is the third segment in 4000 series affair with a 3.15-slot design and triple-fan cooler. Underneath is the Ada Lovelace AD104 GPU on TSMC’s custom 4nm node, with 12GB of super-fast GDDR6X memory.

The GeForce RTX 4070  card is roughly on par with the AMD RX6800XT (16 GB), and besides, due to relatively adequate prices, coupled with a new architecture and lower consumption, the former are confidently replacing the latter in the world of gaming hardware. To the above advantages of the 4xxx line, you can add DLSS 3.5 version scaling technology, which works only with cards of this generation. In general, we can once again state that the RTX 4070 will provide excellent comfort in all games at maximum quality settings with disabled ray tracing and scaling technologies in resolutions up to 4K inclusive. In 4K, however, if the game allows, it is worth turning on DLSS.

The back of the TUF GeForce RTX 4070 shows a large backplate fitting to the card which helps to cool and stiffens the card so as to not flex around. ASUS did redesign the backplate with TUF design.

The TUF RTX 4070 is fitted with 12 Gigabyte GDDR6X memory, it runs at 21 Gbps (effective data rate) of bandwidth. The IO panel shows three DisplayPort 1.4a, and one HDMI 2.1a connectors that will bring 8K 60 Hz HDR to a single HDMI cable. No more USB type-C Virtual Link connector.

The card has a single 8-pin PCIe auxiliary power connector that has a maximum output of 150W in addition to the 75W PCIe slot.


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.


ASUS TUF RTX 4070 12GB GDDR6X is the second lowest range graphics card in Nvidia Ada Lovelace AD104-based segment. As such, our graphics workstation, based on an ASUS ROG Z790 Hero motherboard and Intel 13900k 24 cores processor.  The ram we will be using is  XPG 6000mhz- 32Gb memory kit. ADATA XPG GAMMIX S50 Lite 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD is used as well to run with benchmark. On the Comparison, we will be testing 4 GPUs to run side by side to see perform better.

FarCry 6

Far Cry 6 supports ray tracing at launch, with the ability to enable DXR reflections and DXR shadows. But because DXR shadows are kind of pointless and not worth the performance hit, we haven’t tested with them enabled, but I have taken a look at DXR reflections, so we’ll look at that shortly using supported hardware.
