Leadtek launches RTX 4070 with blower-style fan design
Leadtek recently submitted a registration document to the South Korean National Radio Research Agency (RRA), revealing a graphics card termed “RTX 4070 AI BLOWER.” Given Leadtek’s past nomenclature, it suggests a product employing a blower-style cooling design, a revelation that might surprise some. It’s noteworthy that during the previous generation GeForce RTX 30 series, some manufacturers launched products with a similar design, only to be thwarted by Nvidia, ultimately forcing them to withdraw or cease production.
This graphics card has already been listed on Leadtek’s official website, exhibiting a sleek black aesthetic, embellished with silver accents, bearing a closer resemblance to Nvidia’s RTX A series workstation graphics cards in design. As per Leadtek’s description, this particular card boasts an aluminum die-cast shell, copper fins, and a heat spreader, with a unique internal design. The installed WinFast dual ball bearing fan, with a life expectancy of 50,000 hours, offers superior reliability, a high level of dust resistance, and minimizes friction and noise.
The Leadtek RTX 4070 AI BLOWER, with overall dimensions of 265mm x 111mm x 38mm, is equipped with the AD104 GPU, possessing 5888 CUDA cores. Its base clock frequency is set at 1920 MHz, with a boost clock frequency of 2475 MHz, paired with 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM, with a 192-bit memory bus width, a speed of 21 Gbps, a memory bandwidth of 504 GB/s, and a total card power consumption of 200W. It features three DisplayPort 1.4a ports and one HDMI 2.1 port.
The pricing details and specific availability date for the RTX 4070 AI BLOWER graphics card are yet to be disclosed. It’s understood that Leadtek may market this graphics card as a product designed for handling artificial intelligence tasks, aimed at enterprise customers, and may not necessarily appear on the retail market.
