Gigabyte RTX 4070 Ti getting water treatment

The graphics card maket set to announce two more RTX 4070 Ti cards as part of AORUS WaterForce series. 

The cards pictured above were not released yet, but we have some renders of these new cards already. Gigabyte is planning to introduce AORUS WaterForce Xtreme and AORUS WaterForce Xtreme WB (waterblock), both cards using liquid cooling.

As the name suggests, the latter comes with a preinstalled waterblock that will require an existing liquid loop in the system. This is a perfect solution for those who are simply upgrading the GPU, but would rather not risk voiding the warranty by installing a waterblock themselves.

Those who would rather not use custom liquid loops in their systems, can still choose the non-WB version which comes with a full All-in-One cooling solution. This is not the first AORUS WaterForce in RTX 40 series though, as Gigabyte has already introduced one for RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 models. What is interesting though is that each card features a slightly different design and RTX 4070 Ti is no exception. The new AD104-based card has a smaller radiator, no longer 360mm but 240mm in size.

Upon a closer look, we learn that the RTX 4070 TI cooler is actually borrowed from RTX 30 series. The shroud is almost identical to RTX 3080 series, but there are some obvious changes to the PCB (now featuring 16-pin power connector) and the fact that RTX 4070 Ti AORUS is equipped with standard display connectors. The last-gen models offered upgraded display connectivity with additional HDMI/DisplayPort for VR headsets.

Gigabyte did not confirm pricing, specs or release date for its AORUS WaterForce RTX 4070 Ti cards yet.
