Among many custom designs for NVIDIAs GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card, EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 is one of them. The EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 lineup consists of two variants; the first one is XC3, while the other one is the ICX3 FTW3 that offers a more premium design.

The EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 is also quite impressive as it supports a 2.2 slot form factor and features a fully custom PCB design. The card utilizes the triple-fan cooling solution, and it also houses a large aluminum heat sink with multiple copper heat pipes running through it. Matte black color is used for the shroud and the backplate, followed by an aesthetic curve on shrouds front and backside.

As per Jacob Freeman, the XC3 variant will measure at 11.2 inches, while the FTW3 will have a length of 11.8 inches. Three fans with nine fan blades are also provided. Small EVGA logos are embedded on the fan blades while a large sticker is attached in the fan’s middle. The card’s previous leaks hinted at a standard display configuration, three Displayport 1.4, and a single HDMI 2.1 connector.

The dual eight-pin connector is the standard for custom RTX 3070 designs, while the founder’s edition will use a single 12 pin connector. A nice factory overlock with capacity for further overclocking is expected from this model.

As far as the pricing is concerned, the card will be priced near $499, and if the card is faster than the RTX 2080 Ti, it would be a steal but bad news for the 2080 Ti owners too. The reviews in October will confirm the RTX 3070s performance against the last generation flagship GPUs while the reviews for RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are expected later this month.
