NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 is now out in the open and just like clockwork, its AiB partners have released their custom variants of the card. In the case of Zotac, those cards come in the form of its Twin Edge series.
Specifically, Zotac’s new Twin Edge lineup consists of two SKUs: an OC variant and a non-OC variant. To break it down further, the non-OC variant of the Twin Edge has a boost clock of 1725MHz, while the OC version’s boost clock is slightly higher at 1755MHz.
Boost clocks notwithstanding, both cards are RTX 3070s through and through. Meaning that they have the same 8GB GDDR6 graphics memory running at 14Gbps, 5888 CUDA Cores, as well as the same 220W power consumption.
Design-wise, both cards sport the same dual-fan configuration, complete with Zotac’s IceStorm 2.0 Advanced Cooling technology. Additionally, the cards also have a metal backplate bolted on to it, allowing for better passive cooling and added rigidity. To properly run the cards, both models will require two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, which is one 8-pin port more than what the RTX 3070 Founders Edition requires.
Both the Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge and Twin Edge OC are available at all authorised dealers and PC shops. Pricing for the cards starts at RM2399 for the Twin Edge, while the Twin Edge OC costs an extra RM100 at RM2499.
