ASUS has expanded its graphics card offerings with the introduction of the DUAL GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER, a more cost-effective option that delivers baseline performance. This graphics card, with its compact and aesthetically appealing design, measures about 27 cm in length and features a dual-fan cooling system. This system effectively keeps the temperature at a stable 65°C, while maintaining a low noise level of 36-37 dBa, contributing to a quiet gaming environment.

The AD104 GPU powers the GeForce RTX 4070 7168 shader cores, which can generate an impressive 36 FP32 Shader TFLOPS rendering rasterized graphics, 224 Fourth Generation Tensor Cores for AI processing and DLSS, 56 Third Generation Ada RT Cores for driving next-generation ray-tracing The GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER like the rest of the GPUs in Nvidia's RTX 40 Series, features Ada technologies like Shader Execution Reordering (SER), the new RT core engines, and DLSS 3. This graphics card is clocked to 2475 MHz (boost) with a TGP of 220W.  In terms of resolution, the ASUS DUAL GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER performs nicely, particularly in the 2560x1440 range, making it a viable option for users who value design and quality. While it may not be the fastest card on the market, ASUS provides flexibility for modifications, including a 9% increase in the power limiter. This adjustment can elevate the clock speed to 2.9~3.0 GHz. When combined with the GDDR6 memory, clocked at 23 Gbps, this card offers potential for performance tuning. The DUAL GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER, positioned as a product with the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), aligns closely with the reference specifications, mirroring the Founder's Edition card's performance within a 1% margin. It boasts an effective memory speed of 21 Gbps.  Let's start this review, shall we?
