Introduction and Analysis

The GALAX GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER EX Gamer features a distinctive design that is likely to attract attention. This graphics card provides superior visual quality and seamless gameplay at high resolutions, supporting real-time ray tracing, DLSS, and AI-enhanced technologies. The EX Gamer variant of the RTX 4070 SUPER includes a more advanced PCB and a triple-fan cooling system. This cooling system is 32 cm long, takes up three PCIe slots, and uses advanced Wings 2.0 fans for up to more airflow than previous models. It is equipped with three fans: two 92mm fans on the sides and a larger 102mm fan in the center. The card is slightly overclocked, resulting in an increase in overall performance. Priced at an MSRP of $599, the EX Gamer edition offers significant performance, especially for applications involving ray tracing, DLSS, and AI-powered enhancements. The card comes equipped with 12 GB of graphics memory and an advanced cooling system with three fans. It demonstrates a performance improvement of approximately 4~5% over the Founder's Edition while maintaining a notably quiet operation. The GPU employs a semi-passive cooling approach, activating the fans to efficiently manage heat as temperatures rise. Additionally, ASUS has reinforced the card with a support bracket, designed to prevent any sagging issues. Targeted at ray tracing, DLSS, and AI-powered assists, the GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER offers quite a bit of performance. At 599 USD, it is in reach for a lot more people as opposed to the previous high-end products At a retail price of $599, the RTX 4070 is a somewhat more affordable option for gamers seeking high-end performance compared to its predecessor, the RTX 4070 Ti, which was initially priced at $899.The GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER boasts impressive features such as ray tracing, DLSS3, and AI-powered assists, making it an attractive choice for gamers who demand optimal performance. With 7168 (was 5888) shader cores and 12GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface, the graphics card delivers a maximum bandwidth of 504GB/s. It also includes 56 RT cores, 224 Tensor cores, 224 TMUs, and 80 ROPs, using 35.8 Billion transistors counting AD104 silicon as the RTX 4070 Ti, with 56 out of 60 streaming multiprocessors being enabled. The RTX 4070 SUPER provides a more affordable upgrade solution for gamers who want a high-end graphics card.

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, when compared to the founder's edition model, provides a performance increase of around 4-5% GALAX has introduced the GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER EX Gamer Edition, equipped with 12GB and powered by NVIDIA's ADA104 GPU. This version is available at the suggested retail price and features a somewhat reduced configuration. It incorporates the latest 12V power connector and employs a triple-fan cooling setup for effective heat dissipation. The graphics card is pre-tuned to a 2565 MHz clock speed, with minor modifications to the Total Graphics Power (TGP). It is designed with RGB fans for lighting, appealing to those who prefer a simple aesthetic. In testing, further overclocking achieved frequencies in the range of 2.9 to 3.0 GHz. Given these performance levels and their compatibility with premium components, a power supply unit of at least 650-700 Watts is recommended, though the final decision is up to the user.  Let's start this review, shall we?
