ASUS has registered a GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua with the Eurasian Economic Commission. That suggests that the manufacturer is working with Noctua on a video card. ASUS already released PhD water coolers with Noctua fans in the past.
ASUS’ EEC registration includes, among several other video cards, an RTX3070-8G-NOCTUA, Twitter user noted Komachi_Ensaka on. EEC listings do not contain images and it is therefore not clear what the alleged video card would look like.
Noctua is an Austrian cooler manufacturer best known for its fans and processor coolers, but the company has never produced a cooler for video cards before. For example, it is unclear whether it will be an air-cooled GPU, with a heatsink and fans from Noctua, or a video card with an AIO water cooler. ASUS previously introduced ROG Ryujin-aio water coolers, which came with Noctua fans.
An EEC registration does not always mean that the video card will appear on the market soon, or that it will come out at all. However, there have been rumors about a video card from ASUS and Noctua before, VideoCardz also notes. Hwcooling made inquiries with ASUS and Noctua as a result. The companies could not confirm anything at the time, but hinted that a Noctua video card may be in development with ASUS. “I can’t comment on this yet, but hopefully soon,” a spokesperson told Hwcooling.
