In our ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 TUF Gaming review we find that the card comes with an amazing cooler that achieves whisper-quiet noise levels and incredibly low temperatures at the same time. A dual-BIOS feature is included, too, as well as a second HDMI output.

Yep... patience man. Usually we get availability in good order, I'm not worried tbh. But before Christmas? Doubtful.

Advantage is that there's enough time to make a solid comparison with whatever RDNA2 is bringing to the table at this price point. The 6800 is probably not the one as it already starts at 580.

TUF cards deserve full credit for their design this generation.
What an absolute redemption story they pulled with this brand. What an absolutely fantastic cooler design.
Agreed. Every RTX30 TUF seems premium and its MSRP (for whatever thats worth lol) is completely reasonable.

@W1zzard looking at the picture of the voltage controller, it should be OnSemi NCP81610, not NCP81810

Are we getting a Palit review? I'm considering picking a Gaming Pro up since I have a G-Sync monitor, it is available and not as expensive as other big cooler designs. There were some of those in the previous Ampere roundups.

Well done, Asus! Now let's hope they put as much care into the upcoming AMD cards as they've clearly done with the RTX 30 series. I'm honestly rather impressed! This is a card I'd be proud to have in my rig.

they are slapping AIO onto the AMD RX6000 series, could that be a hint how hot they are running :D

I didn't mean their AIO Strix GPU that's incoming. I meant this generation of their TUF cards. Their previous generation -- mainly on the RX 5000 series side of things -- suffered from absolutely abysmal quality control. There was absolutely nothing put in place on the TUF 5700 XT to help cool the memory, which resulted in crazy high temps. Hardware Unboxed did a video of it a while back, in fact.

Yeah sorry but this is priced at €700, 3080 Tuf oc is nearly €900. No way I'm buying them at this price.
Customers in EU are getting f... with no vaseline.

Same price as my country then, and it actually is available, but not the non-OC version.
AIBs just side-step the MSRP with their premimum models pricing. Oh well at least you are paying for guaranteed overclocks and not the scalpers, and the TUF edition is so good there is no need for watercooling...

No guaranteed stock. Those prices are all for pre-orders first come, first served limit to 1 unit per customer. No way I'm getting ripped off like this.
Hopefully AMD's release will force retailers into adjusting prices for both.
Or AIB will simply mark up their cards in EU because it's not like theres some official info on EU pricing available anywhere.
Another major retailer €950 for 3080 Tuf non-oc.

Its a fair guess, but actually my first thought was that they found these cards to be worth going premium out of the gate. I know its the first time Ive been excited to see what AMD are doing in a GPU in a long time.

Except out of the gate some partner 3070 retail for as much as 3080 FE should cost.

thank god this card is priced around €521 in Taiwan, still waiting for November 18th to see how the RX 6800 XT performs to decide which one to buy.

I plan to buy RTX3070 and now i am confuse between this TUF GAMING OC RTX 3070 or ROG STRIX GAMING RTX 3070.
Except the look, is there any performance difference? In my country price for TUF GAMING is $857 and the ROG STRIX is $987 (difference $130), is it worth to choose the rog strix?

Nope, just buy the TUF 3070, if you have enough money for the Strix 3070 then buy the TUF 3080 instead :D

Can you point me a few reason why the answer is nope? Are they both perform the same?

Yes, they perform around 1-2% with each other, no need to spend extra money for the Strix.

review cons seems biased. how is overclocking more complicated its the same as any other card. I can do +120core +1200 with max temp of 62 after 3 hours of cyberpunk.

I normally buy strix/ftw but this was the only one available, saved 100canadian because asus knocked it out of the park with the Tuf design in 30xx series.

power limit, other RTX 3070 cards with higher power limit behave completely differently when overclocking

no offense, but don't throw out big accusations if you don't know the underlying technical details
