ASUS introduced the GeForce GTX 1070 Turbo graphics card (model: TURBO-GTX1070-8G). Based on essentially the same product design as the GTX 1080 Turbo launched earlier this month, this card could be the company's most affordable GTX 1070 offering, priced close to the $379 baseline price NVIDIA set for this SKU. It features a lateral cooling solution strapped onto a custom-design PCB by ASUS, which draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1503 MHz core, 1683 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. Among its unique features include a 4-pin PWN case-fan header, which lets you sync a fan to the card's temperature, controllable via the included software.
