GALAX launches RTX 4070 20th Anniversary Edition graphics card

Founded in 2003, Galax celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. To commemorate this milestone, Galax has launched a special 20th Anniversary Series, encompassing graphics cards, SSDs, and memory modules. Previously, products such as the GeForce RTX 4090 20th Anniversary Edition graphics card, 20th Anniversary Starlight SSD, and Galax Starlight 20th Anniversary Edition memory have successively hit the market.

According to Videocardz, Galax recently introduced the RTX 4070 20th Anniversary Edition graphics card, exclusively for the Chinese market. This card shares the design language of the previously released RTX 4090 20th Anniversary Edition, featuring a dual 10cm fan layout on the front with cooling vents and a singular 9cm reverse-blade fan on the back. This complements the “GALAX 2” inscription on the backplate, forming a unique identifier for the “Galax 20th Anniversary.” It incorporates a concealed power interface and ARGB sync interface, blending various materials and surface treatments for a sleek, yet luxurious appearance. However, due to the RTX 4070’s lower cooling and power requirements compared to the RTX 4090, the card’s thickness is reduced from 60mm to 45mm, and the power interface is changed from 12VHPWR to a standard 8Pin.

In terms of specifications, the Galax RTX 4070 20th Anniversary Edition is equipped with an AD104-250 GPU, boasting 5888 CUDA cores, a base frequency of 1920MHz, and a boost frequency of up to 2610MHz. It features 12GB of GDDR6X memory, a 192-bit memory bus, and a speed of 21 Gbps. The display outputs include a standard trio of DP 1.4a ports and one HDMI 2.1 port, with power consumption increased from the standard 200W to 215W.

It is noteworthy that due to Nvidia’s inability to supply the AD102-350 GPU any longer, production of the RTX 4090 20th Anniversary Edition has been hindered. Thus, Galax might introduce a 20th Anniversary Edition for the upcoming RTX 4090D. Launching the more affordable RTX 4070 model first is a strategic move, although Galax has yet to announce its specific release date and price.
