Asus Unveils New GeForce RTX 4070 Megalodon Graphics Card
Of late, ASUS has unveiled its new ATS-RTX4070-O12G-GAMING Megalodon graphics card. Diverging from the worldwide release of prior products in the ROG STRIX, TUF Gaming, and Dual series, Wccftech highlights this graphics card as particularly tailored for the Asia-Pacific market. ASUS recently showcased the ‘ASUS Hidden Connector Concept Build’ at Computex 2023, which employed this very graphics card in its design, sharing the same heat dissipation module.
The ATS-RTX4070-O12G-GAMING Megalodon, with overall dimensions of 317 x 136 x 54 mm, is a 2.5-slot thick graphics card, beneath its protective shield lies a substantial aluminum fin heat dissipation module. It is outfitted with three axial fans, using dual-ball bearings, which ensure quiet and efficient operation, exceptional durability, and a prolonged lifespan. Further enhancements include a smaller fan hub for longer fan blades and a circular sealing ring to augment downward air pressure. The card is complemented with a robust ventilated backplate that extends beyond the PCB, providing a cutout that can work in conjunction with the axial fans to mitigate noise levels and maintain stringent control of GPU temperature. The default overclocking frequency stands at 2520MHz, which can be elevated to 2550MHz in overclocking mode.
Gamers can utilize the ASUS GPU Tweak III software for regulating the graphics card. This innovative interface amalgamates core functionalities into a centralized dashboard, facilitating easy access as per the users’ needs. Furthermore, the voltage frequency regulator has been refined, making overclocking simpler. Features such as 0dB silence technology, automatic profile switching, fully customizable on-screen display, and logging capabilities afford additional benefits, ensuring players can fully exploit the graphics card’s performance.
ASUS articulates that this graphics card is manufactured using fully automated process technology, capable of accomplishing all soldering tasks in a single process. This not only reduces the thermal strain on components but also circumvents the use of high-alkaline cleaning chemicals. The implementation of this technology ultimately minimizes environmental impact, reduces power consumption during manufacturing, and fosters the creation of more reliable products.
