Tongde develops GeForce RTX 3070 LHR for small PC

Gone are the days when additional board (AIB) manufacturers introduced Mini-ITX graphics cards based on top-of-the-line GPUs. Today, almost all advanced graphics AIBs are so large that they can hardly fit into many typical desktop computers. To solve such system problems, Palit’s partner in Japan this week launched a GeForce RTX 3070 LHR graphics card, which is shorter than other RTX 3070 motherboards on the market, including Nvidia’s own RTX 3070 Founders Edition.

Galakuro’s GeForce RTX 3070 LHR (GG-RTX3070-E8GBOC/DF/LHR) Equipped with Nvidia’s GA104 GPU, with 5888 CUDA cores clocked at 1725 MHz and 8GB of 14 GT/s GDDR6 memory, connected to the processor using a 256-bit interface. The card has four display outputs (three DisplayPort 1.4a, one HDMI 2.1) and an eight-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector. Like other products designed by Tongde, this product is compatible with Tongde/Galax’s XtremeTuner software.

AIB does not have extreme GPU clocks or enhanced VRM to ensure that the card has excellent overclocking potential. Its main selling point is the length of 238 mm: Compared with Nvidia’s own GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition, it is 4 mm shorter, and compared with AIB manufacturer’s typical GeForce RTX 3070 motherboard, it is about 120 mm shorter. The short length of the card will allow it to be installed in PCs that cannot accommodate 400 mm graphics cards, such as smaller ATX, Micro-ATX or larger Mini-ITX systems.

But there is a problem. Palit’s GeForce RTX 3070 LHR has a fairly large cooling system with two 102 mm Wings fans, making it 54 mm thick and 128 mm high, which may make it incompatible with some PCs.
