The OC version likely has higher factory clock settings. Though for some reason their spec sheet doesn't list a clock speed on the OC version.

It doesn't really matter though. GPUs typically boost well beyond their advertised specs as long as there's sufficient cooling.

3070 with 2x8 power connectors? Weren't they supposed to come with a single 8-pin in reference form? If you're going to be using that much power anyway, then get a 3080.

The TBP is rated at 220W stock. This would generally require a 6+8 configuration. But likely for logistical reasons since it only requires one type of connector, it's just cheaper to throw on a 8+8.

that's typical for board partner for years now. take GTX970 for example. reference board are rated at 165w. AIB cards with OC have head room towards 200-220w. but my MSI 970 Gaming are equipped with 6+8 power connector which can provide up to 300w. for GPU that rated 250w+ it becoming normal to see them to be equipped with 8+8 power connector now. well that is from normal perspective anyway when we consider the PCIE x16 slot can provide up to 75w of power. for AIB there is good reason to give the card "over spec" power supply as well.
