COLORFUL is a brand not many people have heard of, but it deserves some more of that warm spotlight -- so because I'm a huge nerd and enthusiast and have a job where I can review graphics cards for a living -- I try to find weird and wonderful custom graphics cards to review.
This is where Chinese company COLORFUL comes into play, with the first Turing-based graphics card that I reviewed from COLORFUL was the astounding iGame GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Vulcan X OC-V (my review here). It is my favorite custom GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER thanks to its kick ass performance, and slick design -- the LCD and backplate on the card are just the cherry on top.
I've been trying to get my hands-on the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER outings from COLORFUL, and it has taken me months. But my friends, the day is finally here. I have in my hands the COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V.
The big difference here is that the Advanced OC-V doesn't have the awesome LCD or best-backplate-in-the-business... but it does have something COLORFUL calls the "Silver Shark" cooler which I love.
As I said, COLORFUL has some of the weirdest and wonderful custom graphics cards on the market and the design of the iGame GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V is no different. Right out of the box it looks unique, with its red trim around the center fan that is flanked by two black fans. The triple-fan cooler is a beast, and it is a thin card on top of that.
COLORFUL used "upgraded armor" with alloy casting technics that the company says "make it harder and seem more technical". They've used a space grey color theme and highlight the red energy core (which again, just looks so cool). There are 5 different RGB effects that help the card stand out in your gaming PC, too.
The RGB effects in the center fan are pretty damn cool -- it reminds me of the Iron Man and his Arc Reactor.
If you can buy the card in your market, the COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V should cost around $550-$600, the same as other custom RTX 2070 SUPER graphics cards.
You can buy the COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V on Ali Express here.
COLORFUL is using an upgraded Silver Shark 2.0 on its iGame GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V, which uses the iGame Vacuum Ice Piece Technics cooler. It's a multi-part process that contains the solid back plate armor, a power supply heat sink, 5 x 8mm pure copper heat pipes, and then the iGame breathing light.
The packaging for the COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V has a menancing-looking box.
From the front we have that wicked design, with the triple-fan Silver Shark 2.0 cooler.
See what I mean by the design? The center and its red energy core look great, I don't think I've seen a graphics card quite like this before.
I do wish COLORFUL did more with the backplate, especially considering just how damn good the backplate is on the higher-end iGame GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Vulcan X OC-V.
You will get 3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI, and 1 x VirtualLink connector on the end of the card.
You'll need dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors for the card.
From the top you can see the iGAME branding at the top, which glows with RGB goodness. You can tweak it through COLORFUL's own software that you can download from their website. The iGameZone II software is used for overclocking and tweaking, and you can grab it right here.
