Noctua has a rock-solid fame within the cooling biz. The corporate not solely makes a few of the finest air coolers going, it plasters them in a adore it or hate it beige and brown paint job. I adore it, in fact, and that is why I am awfully excited in regards to the prospect of Noctua teaming up with Asus for a model new Nvidia graphics card.

The Asus and Noctua card was noticed by Twitter leaker Komachi_Ensaka in an EEC itemizing—that is the Eurasian Financial Fee, which has a public file of electronics meant to be imported into the area—beneath the codename “RTX3070-8G-NOCTUA”.

It might be fairly the coincidence for the Noctua title to indicate up with none connection to the cooling firm, however that is not the one proof we now have accessible to us. Videocardz was notified of the same submit again in July from web site hwcooling.internet author Ľubomír Samák, who says they heard of the Asus and Noctua partnership from a trusted supply, and once they reached out to verify the rumours, they had been provided one thing of a clue throughout the common “no remark”.

The response, from an worker whose title has been retracted, reads: “I can’t touch upon this but, hopefully quickly although!”

Proof is rising for the Asus and Noctua mash-up, then. However what would possibly such a card entail? I’d love if some courageous soul at Asus put ahead a graphics card bathed in beige and brown, however I’ve a sense the truth could also be one thing fully completely different.

Noctua does, in reality, make some regular-looking black followers. They’re functionally just like the brown ones however much less divisive.

So toned-down followers are one choice. The opposite is one thing fully completely different, maybe within the kind of a big heatsink supplied by the corporate that has excelled at making heatsinks for a superb whereas now. Noctua has managed to nail down blocks of finned metallic so properly, it is began leaving the followers off altogether, such is the case with the NH-P1.

We do not know precisely what this partnership could imply for the completed product, an RTX 3070, however it positive does appear like one is within the works. If an EEC itemizing is something to go by, we must always have extra solutions as to precisely what’s going on quickly. EEC listings normally pop up forward of a product announcement or launch, however it should be stated some merchandise that seem on the EEC by no means materialise by any means. This does not seem to be a kind of merchandise, at the least.

In different beige information, Noctua’s well-known colors may be coming to a keyboard close to you, as keycap and keyboard designer Mito has snagged the official license for a Noctua-themed keycap set. You may be the envy of the workplace with these, absolutely. Or fired.
