ASUS Dual OC GeForce GTX 1070 graphic card is intended for especially powerful computers for ensuring the maximum graphic performance of desktop computers allowing to play the most demanding 3D games (Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, Crysis 2, ,Witcher 2, etc.) with high resolution at the picture quality settings close to maximum.
This graphic card has 2 X HDMI ports. HDMI is among the most modern ports if we speak about connecting TVs and the latest generation monitors. The main advantages of HDMI in comparison to DVI and D-SUB are a thin cable which permits to transfer a high quality digital picture and also the multichannel sound signal is transmitted via the same cable. HDMI is compatible with DVI if you buy an extra transition or a cable, however the possibility to transmit also sound is lost in this case.
The GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card delivers the incredible speed and power of NVIDIA Pascal—the most advanced GPU ever created. This is the ultimate gaming platform. Get the power to drive VR, ultra-high-resolution and multiple monitors. Plus, bring more realism to every game with NVIDIA GameWorks technologies that deliver a true cinematic experience, smoother gameplay and amazing new image-capture to share your game. All with the lowest latency and plug and play compatibility with leading VR headsets.
Compared to its brothers from the ROG Strix series as well, the card’s two fans sport a slightly larger diameter, allowing for better heat dissipation. As a point of conjecture our earlier mention of this card not being a gaming-centric graphics card, the Dual GeForce GTX 1070 OC Edition card only has a standard 8-pin power port at the side, instead of the usual 8+6 pin power ports that are usually installed on the more heavy-duty gaming cards.

VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.
VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.
NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
The card is also lacking a backplate, but considering that a majority of cards do not necessarily come with a backplate attached to it, this isn’t really a big issue. Nevertheless, it definitely would have been better if this card did come with a backplate for better rigidity.
