Here's A List Of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 AIB Models With Specifications Like Boost Clocks, Power Consumption & More

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 Ultra

NVIDIA announced the RTX 3070 on 1st September and initially stated that the card will be available for purchase some time in October. Then almost a couple weeks later, they came out and announced that the card will be available for purchase starting October 15th. Then on September 17th the RTX 3080 was sort of available for purchase for a second or so with limited stocks and bots and scalpers getting the inventory of hardly 10s of cards that were provided to each store. After the backlash and after AMD made their move of announcing RX 6000 Series graphics cards on October 28th, NVIDIA came out and stated that they want the RTX 3070 to reach the hands of more customers so they are moving the launch by 2 weeks so that they can have a larger inventory on the day of sale and moved the sale date to 29th October which just happens to be a day after AMD's announcement. TL;DR version is that the RTX 3070 will be available for purchase starting October 29th.

Now coming to the AIB cards - their models, specifications like boost frequencies, Power consumption, PSU requirements, PCIe Power connectors and more a twitter user @harukaze5718 have prepared a handy chart that lists all the models that are announced by AIB partners like ASUS, MSI, Galax (KFA2 in EU), Gainward, Palit, Inno3D, Colorful, Gigabyte and Zotac with their specifications as mentioned above. Lets discuss about them in detail.


MSI is going to sell 6 different models of the RTX 3070 with the premium models like the Gaming X Trio and Gaming Trio will come with 3 fans and has 20W higher power consumption at 240W and compared to the lower end Ventus 2X OC and Ventus 2X which both come with 2 fans and a TDP of 220W. Then there are 2 mid-range cards in the form of Ventus 3X OC and Ventus 3X as the name suggests these cards will have a 3 fan design though the power consumption of these cards is still unknown. For reference the TDP of the reference RTX 3070 is 220W. MSI is suggesting a 650W PSU for all of their RTX 3070 cards as was recommended by NVIDIA themselves and all these cards will derive the required power from 2x8-pin PCIe connectors. For now we only know the boost frequency of the MSI RTX 3070 Gaming Trio which comes in at 1770MHz. 

MSI have also announced the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 SUPRIM X 8G graphics card with a power consumption of 280W with 2x 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The card has 3x Display Ports 1.4a and 1x HDMI 2.1. The card will be available in December.

MSI, on 26/11/2020, have also announced a budget custom RTX 3070 graphics card in the form of MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Fan. It has a 2 fan design that occupies 2 PCIe slots. It has 3x Display ports 1.4a and 1x HDMI 2.1 in the form of Display outs. It also has 1x 8-pin and 1x 6-pin PCIe power connector. The card can boost to 1740MHz.


ASUS seems to be releasing 5 models of the RTX 3070 into the market with their flagship being the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3070 O8G which like the TUF RTX 3070 O8G and TUF RTX 3070 8G (boosting to 1755MHz) have a 3 fan design with the ROG model having 7 heat pipes for more efficient cooling of the flagship card. Then there are 2 lower end models in the form of DUAL RTX 3070 O8G (boosting to 1755MHz) and DUAL RTX 3070 8G that have a 2 fan design. ASUS have not disclosed the power consumption of these cards yet but they are recommending a 750W PSU for all of their RTX 3070 models as you can check out here. All cards require you to plug in 2 8-pin PCIe connectors.


Gainward has announced 2 3070 models in the form of Phoenix GS and Phoenix both boosting to 1770MHz and 1725MHz while consuming 240W and 220W respectively. 650W is the recommended PSU wattage and requires you to connect 2 8-pin PCIe connectors.


Palit will release 4 models of the RTX 3070 in the form of GamingRock OC, GamingRock, GamingPro OC (boosting to 1770MHz) and Gaming Pro (boosting to 1725MHz) with all 4 of them having a 3 fan design. The GamingRock OC seems to have the highest power limit at 270W out of all the 3070 cards from all the AIBs listed. Palit is also recommending a 650W PSU with 2 8-pin PCIe connectors.
Apart from the models mentioned above, Palit have also unveiled their JetStream Model in a social media post of Twitter. This model does not seem to have any RGB so if you wish to have an all black PC and want to go with a Palit card this would be your best bet. The card has 2 pin PCIe Power connectors at the top which is right in the middle of the length of the card. Pictures here.



Inno3D has 2 cards in the form of iChill X4 and iChill X3 with the X4 being a 4 fan card and the X3 being a 3 fan card with both of them boosting to 1785MHz. 650W is the recommended PSU wattage with 2 8-pin PCIe connectors.


Colorful will have 3 models in the form of Colorful iGame RTX 3070 Advanced, Colorful iGame RTX 3070 Ultra and Colorful RTX 3070 NB. All 3 of them have a 3-fan design and they use 2 8-pin PCIe Connectors. There is no boost clock or power consumption numbers for these cards yet.
Colorful today (02/11/20) have announced a white edition of the RTX 3070 in the form of Colorful GeForce RTX 3070 8GB iGame Ultra W OC. Though you can note from the image above that the card is not all white and it has blue, purple, orange and red accents on it. It features a full length back plate with 3 Display Ports 1.4a and 1 HDMI port along side a 1-click OC button on the I/O shield. This card boosts upto 1770MHz and have a PSU recommendation of 650W with 2 8-pin PCIe Power Connectors.


Gigabyte will have 5 models of the RTX 3070 on the market ranging from Aorus Master, Gaming OC, Vision OC to Eagle OC and Eagle variants. They are all 3 fan designs and all of them use 1 8-pin and 1 6-pin PCIe connectors except the Aorus RTX 3070 Master which uses 2 8-pin PCIe power connectors from the PSU. Gigabyte recommends a 650W PSU for the cards. There are no boost frequency and power consumption numbers as of now.

Galax (or KFA2 in EU):

Galax will have 3 RTX 3070 models in the market in the form of EX Gamer (boosting to 1875MHz), EX (boosting to 1875MHz) and SG (boosting to 1840MHz) with the first and last being 3 fan designs and the EX variant being a 2 fan card. Galax as every other brand except ASUS is also a recommending a 650W PSU for its cards with 2 8-pin PCIe power connectors while the SG variant only uses 1 8-pin PCIe connector.
Galax China have also announced 4 more RTX 3070 SKUs named Boomstar OC(boosts to 1785MHz), Metaltop OC (boosts to 1755MHz), Gamer OC (boosts to 1800MHz) and Black OC (boosts to 1755MHz). All of these cards have one thing in common and that is their 3 fan design. All of these cards will also have non-OC variants that will have reference NVIDIA clocks.


Zotac for now seems to have only the Twin Edge OC (boosting to 1755MHz) and Twin Edge (boosting to 1725MHz) models to be released to the market with both having a 2 fan design while consuming 220W power through 2 8-pin PCIe power connectors for which Zotac recommends a 650W PSU.

Zotac have also announced an "all white" (with an asterisk) edition of the RTX 3070 - the Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge White Edition. Coming to the asterisk part of the card, the PCB is still black.


EVGA announced 2 cards in the form of FTW3 Ultra and the XC3.
For those of you who are eagerly waiting for the RTX 3070 reviews to drop, the Founder's Edition will be reviewed on 27th October and the AIB models will be reviewed on the same day as the sale i.e. on 29th October.
