Review: Gigabyte RTX 4070 SUPER Gaming OC


Gigabyte RTX 4070 SUPER Gaming OC :


Our model of the day is part of Gigabyte’s “Gaming OC” series, which we recently tested with the RTX 4070 Ti Gaming OC Edition. Gigabyte has evolved this series over the years, optimizing cooling and integrating a rather original RGB backlighting system.

This RTX 4070 features 7168 CUDA cores, 20% more than the RTX 4070, and a TSMC 4 nm manufacturing process with a 220 watt TGP. In terms of memory, it features 12 GB of 192-bit GDDR6X memory, which translates into a bandwidth of 504 GB/s.

The Gaming OC bundle:

So what’s in the box? It’s easy to identify the Gigabyte color code, with black and orange. The box is quite large, but retains fairly standard dimensions. The box measures 440 x 235 x 95 mm. The box opens to reveal the Gigabyte RTX 4070 SUPER Gaming OC.

Once this has been removed, we find a small box containing the adapter for the card’s power supply. This is a 16-pin (12 4) to two 8-pin 150w (300w total) adapter. This adapter is necessary for those who don’t have a power supply with a 16-pin port or the adapter specific to their power supply. There’s also a support for the graphics card, to prevent it from bending when inserted in your motherboard.

Cooling :

This Gigabyte RTX 4070 Ti Gaming OC has dimensions of 300 x 130 x 58 mm and will occupy 2.5 slots on your motherboard. This model is part of the Gigabyte “Gaming OC” series. In other words, the card already benefits from factory overclocking to NVIDIA’s Boost frequency on its Founders Edition. Aesthetically, the card plays on sobriety with touches of black, anthracite and dark gray. This is a model that will match many motherboards.

This is a custom board, i.e. with its own cooling system. It is labelled “Windforce 3x” and features three 100 mm fans. Gigabyte uses its patented Alternate Spinning technology on this board. The principle is quite simple, and involves the three fans rotating in opposite directions. The aim is to avoid turbulence between them.

The nine fan blades are slightly curved to optimize air flow. Our sample is equipped with ” 3D Active Fan ” technology to leave the fans idle if the GPU temperature doesn’t require them.

The black plastic casing completely encloses the PCB, with a high-quality finish. The fairly neutral aesthetic should suit many users. Two BIOS are also present, a Silent mode and an OC mode. By default and for our tests, we’ll be using OC mode.

Yes, a little backlighting:

Quite a bit of backlighting with the outline of each fan and the Gigabyte logo on the top edge of the board, controllable via RGB Fusion 2.0 software. The backlighting effect is quite surprising, since it’s not what we’re used to seeing. There are no less than 9 RGB effects that can be set via the in-house software.

Connections :

The new 16-pin mini-connectors are used to power the card. As mentioned above, NVIDIA includes an adapter in its bundle which allows two 8-pin connectors to be plugged in.

Finally, the board’s video outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 port. See you in the coming weeks for a review of NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 SUPER Founders Edition. The MSRP for this Gigabyte RTX 4070 SUPER Gaming OC was not given, but it can be found for 749.95 euros.
