Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 vs 1070: Which is right for you?

There’s no doubt that Nvidia is raising its game when it comes to high-end graphics. Both of its recent releases have been barnstormers, and there’s certainly no question over where you should look if you’re searching for an enthusiast GPU.

At the top end, the choice isn’t between Nvidia or AMD, but which GeForce card to opt for. There’s the flagship GTX 1080, which deploys the full clout of the Pascal architecture – but it costs almost £600. If your pockets aren’t that deep then there’s the GTX 1070, which comes in at a more palatable £380 – but it isn’t as powerful.

TrustedReviews put both of these GPUs through a comprehensive set of benchmarks to find out which is best – and I’ve taken a deep dive into board partner cards, prices and overclocking too. Of course, you know which is the more powerful of the two, but hopefully the comparisons outlined below will help you to decide which card is best for your needs. Let’s get started.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 vs 1080 – Specs and Technology

The two GTX cards share the same architecture, but they’re designed for different scenarios. The range-topping GTX 1080 is built for 4K, multi-monitor and VR. The GTX 1070 has enough grunt to handle VR and 1440 playback, but it isn’t quite good enough for smooth 4K gaming.

Th Pascal architecture around which both cards are based is a remarkable bit of design. Nvidia has slimmed down its manufacturing process from 28nm to 16nm, a shrinkage that has allowed the firm to fit more transistors into smaller spaces – and to deploy them on fins, rather than on mere horizontal planes.

The result is that Nvidia is achieving far more with much less: the firm’s new cards include millions more transistors than previous GPUs, and on significantly smaller bits of silicon.

The smoother flow of electricity allows for better GPU performance alongside surprisingly low power consumption. The two new cards deploy 7.2 billion transistors on a 314mm2 die, with peak power consumption figures of 150W and 180W. Their predecessors used 5.2 billion transistors on a 398mm2 die and drew a peak of 145W and 165W from the mains.

The GTX 1080 tops the range with 2,560 CUDA cores, while the GTX 1070 arrives with 1,920. Both cards tower over their predecessors: the GTX 980 had 2,048, while the GTX 970 had 1,664.

The clock speeds are given a huge boost, too. The GTX 1080 zips along at 1,607MHz and the GTX 1070 is just 101MHz slower – both figures are hundreds of megahertz ahead of last year’s cards.

The shared architecture across the cards mean they share Nvidia’s new software features. One of the key inclusions is “pre-emption”, which allows Nvidia’s card to pick and choose between graphics and computing workloads simultaneously.

Both cards also have Lens Matched Shading, which saves resources by not rendering pixels that won’t be seen by the user. There’s simultaneous multi-projection, which allows the GPU to render a scene in as many as 16 different viewpoints – a boon for VR.

Many of these features won’t be used to their full potential right now, but future games development will no doubt take advantage, especially when APIs such as DirectX 12 and Vulkan are better supported.

The two cards diverge in the memory department. The GTX 1080 has 8GB of GDDR5X memory, while the GTX 1070 has 8GB of bog-standard GDDR5 RAM. The former memory is faster, with a 10,000MHz clock compared to the 8,000MHz in the GTX 1070. The GDDR5X memory has a 320-bit bus – wider than the 256-bit included on the GTX 1070.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 vs 1080 – Testing Methodology

I benchmarked the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 on TrustedReviews’ test rig, which has been designed to match the specifications of a standard enthusiast gaming PC. It features the following components:

  • Motherboard: Asus Z170-Deluxe
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-6600K (not overclocked)
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2666MHz, 16GB DDR4
  • Cooler: Corsair H60 liquid cooler
  • PSU: Corsair CX750M
  • SSD: Samsung 850 EVO
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

I’ve tested these powerful cards with five different games. Each title is run at its highest settings, and I’ve tested each game at 1,920 x 1,080, 2,560 x 1,440 and 3,840 x 2,160 – 4K.

I’ve also used a selection of synthetic benchmarks, with 3DMark’s demanding Fire Strike test alongside benchmarks to measure power consumption and peak temperature.

DiRT Rally

Ultra at 1,920 x 1,080 average
GTX 1070: 134. 7
GTX 1080: 154.8
Ultra at 2,560 x 1,440, average
GTX 1070: 97.4
GTX 1080: 122.07
Ultra at 3,840 x 2,160, average
GTX 1070: 52.5
GTX 1080: 63.2

There’s no denying that the GTX 1080 is faster than the GTX 1070, but there’s also no denying that both cards have the power to play DiRT Rally at any resolution.

That’s no surprise, though: this is the easiest benchmark in the slate of test games. It’s fully representative of gameplay, and tests a GPU with complex lighting and rapid texture movement.

Both cards destroyed the 1080p benchmark with average frame rates of 134.7fps and 154.8fps, and the GTX 1080 continued to average a three-figure result at 1440p with 122.07fps. The GTX 1070 was no slouch, either – it hit 97.4fps in the same run.

The two Nvidia cards handle 3,840 x 2,160 with aplomb. The GTX 1070’s average of 52.5fps is excellent, and the GTX 1080 was almost 11 frames faster. Crucially, the pricier card got beyond the 60fps barrier that heralds butter-smooth gameplay.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Ultra at 1,920 x 1,080 average
GTX 1070: 131.3
GTX 1080: 160.3
Ultra at 2,560 x 1,440, average
GTX 1070: 89.8
GTX 1080: 112.3
Ultra at 3,840 x 2,160, average
GTX 1070: 46.7
GTX 1080: 54.9

This game is tougher thanks to a multitude of environmental effects including weather, explosions and fire.

The more challenging game didn’t stop Nvidia’s latest cards blowing away my 1080p test. Both flew past 130fps averages in the 1080p benchmark, and the GTX 1080 continued its good form at 2,560 x 1,440, where it averaged 112.32fps. The cheaper GeForce card impressed, too, with an average of 89.8fps.

The two cards continued to perform well at 4K. The GTX 1080’s 54.9fps average is almost 10 frames beyond its cheaper stablemate, but I’ve no qualms about the GTX 1070’s ability to run this game smoothly at 4K.

Grand Theft Auto V
Ultra at 1,920 x 1,080 average
GTX 1070: 104.2
GTX 1080: 113.4
Ultra at 2,560 x 1,440, average
GTX 1070: 74.9
GTX 1080: 89.3
Ultra at 3,840 x 2,160, average
GTX 1070: 39.3
GTX 1080: 47.3

GTA V’s benchmark is a hugely demanding test, with numerous scenes that cover driving, flying and plenty of other scenarios. Graphically, it’s a demanding game, and here I test with every option run at maximum.

This is another game where both cards handled every resolution, but it is in this trickier title where one card slipped below a 40fps average.

The GTX 1070 averaged 39.3fps in GTA V at 4K, which is almost 10 frames behind the GTX 1080 – a playable score, but still a significant gap between the cards.

There wasn’t as much space between the GPUs at 1440p, where the GTX 1070 registered a sterling 74. 9fps average and the GTX 1080 delivered an 89.3fps result. And at 1080p, both cards excelled with averages beyond 100fps.

It’s worth looking beyond the frame rates to see how the GTX 1080 flexes its extra CUDA core muscles. The GTX 1070 is only 8.11% behind the GTX 1080 at 1080p, but that gap increases to 16.13% at 1440p – and 16.91% at 4K.

Hitman
Max Settings at 1,920 x 1,080, average
GTX 1070: 81.7
GTX 1080: 81.5
Max Settings at 2,560 x 1,440, average
GTX 1070: 69.8
GTX 1080: 84
Max Settings at 3,840 x 2,160, average
GTX 1070: 29.8
GTX 1080: 47.7

This benchmark stresses a PC’s processor and graphics card with a potent mix of objects, NPCs and lighting effects, and here it’s run at peak settings.

I observed the GTX 1080’s widening lead across resolutions in GTA V, and that pattern is even more obvious in Hitman. There’s basically no difference between the two GPUs at 1080p, but the GTX 1080 is 16.93% faster at 1440p – and then 37.53% quicker at 3,840 x 2,160.

This isn’t the only bit of bad news for the GTX 1070. It rattled through Hitman’s 1080p and 1440p tests at good averages of 81.7fps and 69.8fps, but it faltered at 4K with an average of 29.8fps. That’s below the key 30fps figure, and its minimum frame rate will be even lower – which means that the game will stutter at this demanding resolution.

The GTX 1080 had no such problems. It blitzed the 1080p and 1440p tests at 81.5fps and 84.03fps – its increase in speed a clear demonstration of the card flexing its muscles; and it handled 4K at 47.7fps.

Rise of the Tomb Raider
Max Settings at 1,920 x 1,080 average
GTX 1070: 97.9
GTX 1080: 135.8
Max Settings at 2,560 x 1,440, average
GTX 1070: 65.6
GTX 1080: 92.5
Max Settings at 3,840 x 2,160, average
GTX 1070: 34
GTX 1080: 48. 3

The intensive weather and lighting effects in this benchmark will strain even the beefiest graphics core, and I’ve run the game with every option turned up to the maximum level.

In these tests the GTX 1080 rose to the occasion, with a 4K average of 48.3fps – and it ran at nearly 100fps when I dropped the resolution to 2,560 x 1,440.

The GTX 1070 performed well, too – and certainly improved on its Hitman frame rates. Its 4K average of 34fps is back on the right side of 30fps, and it breezed through 60fps at 1440p. It almost hit 100fps at 1080p, too.

In addition, the GTX 1070 was consistently slower than the GTX 1080 in this test, but the gap between the two cards sat at just below 30% in every test. That’s a better bill of health than its scores in the previous two games, where the GTX 1080 deployed its better memory and larger complement or stream processors to open a larger gap with every resolution increase.

Synthetic Benchmarks, Power and Heat
3D Mark Fire Strike Ultra
GTX 1070: 3,953
GTX 1080: 4,884
Peak power:
GTX 1070: 229W
GTX 1080: 286W
Peak temperature:
GTX 1070: 74°C
GTX 1080: 75°C

The 3DMark: Fire Strike test demonstrates the gulf in power between these two excellent cards. The GTX 1070 scored 3,953, but the GTX 1080 managed 4,884. The extra stream processors, higher clock and better memory clearly work wonders.

The Fire Strike test also provides a firm demonstration of just how much better the new Nvidia hardware is when compared to earlier cards. The GTX 970 scored just 2,767 in this test, while the GTX 980 could manage only 3,286.

My test rig consumed 229W with the GTX 1070 installed and 286W with the GTX 1080 on-board. These are fantastic figures considering the power on offer from these cards: the GTX 1070’s power draw is actually lower than the 260W requirement of the GTX 970, and the GTX 1080 is only 16W ahead of my GTX 980 rig.

These figures will be even better when compared to older GPUs, and there are several benefits to having a more efficient GPU installed: less electricity is consumed, less heat is generated, and your PC will be quieter.

There’s little to choose between peak temperatures – no surprise, seeing as I tested Nvidia’s Founders Edition hardware, which is the same across both chips. The GTX 1080’s 75°C peak was one degree warmer than the GTX 1070.

Performance Conclusions

There’s no doubt about it: Nvidia’s latest two GPU releases secure its position at the top of the graphics market – at least until AMD unveils some more powerful cards based on its new Polaris architecture.

The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 are both hugely powerful. They both rattled through 1080p and 1440p benchmarks without breaking a sweat, and both have enough power to handle VR.

Head towards the high-end, though, and the GTX 1080 starts to justify its higher price. The GTX 1070 dipped below 30fps in one 4K test, and its lower averages in some of those benchmarks mean its minimums will be slower – and that means juddering gameplay. The GTX 1080 had no such problems, with far smoother 4K performance.

I also observed the GTX 1080 opening wider leads on its stablemate as resolutions became trickier. That’s testament to its superior specification, and it means the GTX 1080 is a better bet for 4K and multi-monitor setups – and for VR, where its extra power adds a layer of future-proofing.

Both cards easily outpaced their predecessors and both did so with impressive noise and power consumption figures.

Nvidia has done a sterling job with the Pascal architecture, and it means these two cards are both worth considering. The GTX 1070 is a superb choice for 1080p and 1440p gaming, while the GTX 1080 is fantastic for 4K, multi-monitor setups and smooth VR.

Overclocking and SLI

Nvidia reckons there’s ample headroom for overclocking on both cards thanks to GPU Boost 3.0, which provides more granular control over core and memory frequencies and voltages.

It was possible to achieve decent gains from both cards. I added 220MHz and 260MHz to the GTX 1070’s core and memory clocks, which saw an average improvement of around 6fps in my games tests. The GTX 1080 saw its core and memory clocks rise by 200MHz and 189MHz, which delivered about five more frames in the test games.

The situation surrounding SLI is a little trickier. Nvidia is allowing gamers to use two cards in SLI, but if you’d like to go further then you’ll have to register with Nvidia to receive an unlock code.

This is a new approach, but I can’t see it hampering many gamers – the performance of these cards mean that there’s little need to go beyond two GPUs, and the driver issues and diminishing returns of three- and four-card SLI means I can’t wholeheartedly recommend that approach.

Other Things to Consider

Nvidia launched both of these GPUs with its Founders Edition hardware, which was far more expensive than board partner cards yet actually offered very little. That extra spend got you the kudos of being first in the queue alongside Nvidia’s admittedly excellent metallic card design, but nothing else.

Thankfully, there’s now no need to spend all that extra cash on the Founders Edition cards – board partners have unleashed their own versions of the new GPUs.

There’s already huge variety in the marketplace. Prices for air-cooled cards range from £380 to £500, and beyond that there are cards with waterblocks fitted for liquid cooling. Even the cheapest cards come with modest overclocks, and spending around £420 could net you a card with a GPU at 1,620MHz or 1,670MHz and memory overclocked to 8,500MHz.

Many GTX 1070s use Nvidia’s sturdy reference design, but plenty more deploy a greater number of fans and different heatsinks. There’s even a tiny mini-ITX version, and a card with a pre-built water-cooling unit attached.

Unlike the GTX 1070, the GTX 1080 doesn’t have smaller versions of the card available, but the market is well stocked with reference and third-party designs. Prices range between £590 and £750, and overclocked models are common. These tweaked cores often run at speeds beyond 1,700MHz, with memory tweaked to 10,500MHz.

Verdict

There’s plenty to like about both of these GPUs – and they’re both worth considering for different scenarios.

The GTX 1070 is an exceptional card for 1080p and 1440p gaming, and it has ample power for VR. It does this while consuming less power than its predecessor, and I’ve seen that overclocking yields impressive results too.

The GTX 1080 is more expensive, but it’s the best graphics card on the market right now – and that makes it worth the extra cash. It’s unbeatable at 4K, and it has the grunt for multi-monitor setups and VR too. If you’re going to play games at the high-end, this is the card to buy.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs 1080 vs 1070 vs 1060 vs 1050

If you’re about to buy a
gaming laptop or a new graphics card for your PC, then you’ll be looking at Nvidia’s 10-series GPUs. The full range now includes the 1080 Ti, 1080, 1070, 1060 and entry-level 1050. AMD’s current
Radeon RX range competes with Nvidia only at the lower end. The
Radeon RX Vega is coming soon.

The GeForce GTX 10-series cards are all fast, but as well as being great for the latest PC games, they’re also ideal if you want to hook up a
VR headset.

The ‘prosumer’ Titan Xp is not included here but we have compared it with the 1080 Ti in our
Titan Xp vs 1080 Ti head to head.

You’ll find full reviews of all of these in our
best graphics cards round-up and more about the cards’
release date, UK price and availability.

How much do they cost?

The cards are all available now, with prices ranging between £99 and £850 depending on model and supplier. The table below summarises the prices you can expect to pay for the Nvidia reference card (the Founders Edition) and cards made by partners including Asus, MSI, XFX, Zotac and others.

The Founders Edition cards aren’t always cheaper than overclocked third-party cards. The average prices we’ve listed here are for overclocked cards from partners, but you can save a little money if you buy a card running at Nvidia’s standard speeds.

In the UK, you can buy these cards from a variety of UK retailers including: 
Overclockers UK,
Ebuyer,
Scan,
Amazon,
Maplin and
Currys.

You can buy Founders Editions directly from 
Nvidia’s website.

GeForce 10-series in laptops

Obviously these prices doesn’t apply if you’re considering a gaming laptop that has the graphics processor built in. However, there are a small number of laptops, including the
Razer Blade Stealth, which optionally let you connect a full-size PCI-express graphics card in an external housing.

Crucially, this means you can upgrade your laptop’s graphics card – something that isn’t possible with most gaming laptops.

What is GDDR5X?

Apart from the two GTX 1080 cards, the range all use GDDR5 memory. But the top two use GDDR5X which allows double the theoretical bandwidth speed of traditional GDDR5 memory.

The higher memory bandwidth of the GTX 1080 (and Ti) allows it to run a third faster than the GTX 1070, GTX 1060 and other GDDR5 cards. Bottom line: they perform better.

What features do they have?

Every 10-series card is based on Nvidia’s Pascal platform, which means they all support the same set of features. Performance is the only real differentiator, although certain cards lower in the range are available in ‘mini’ versions which will fit into small PC cases, such as the
Zotac 1050 Ti.

Power

From the specifications table above, you’ll note that the power requirements decrease as you go down the range. The 1050 and 1050 Ti only require power from the PCIe slot itself and don’t need a separate power connector from your power supply. This makes them a reasonable upgrade option if you don’t want to buy and install a higher-wattage PSU.

Shadowplay

The cards have the same streaming-, game recording- and light-customisation options through Nvidia’s Shadowplay software.

Ansel

There’s also support for 
Nvidia Ansel on all cards in the range. Ansell allows you to take in-game pictures in 3D which can then be viewed in a suitable viewer, such as a VR headset.

Fast Sync

The cards also have an advanced and improved version of V-sync, which locks the graphic card’s output to your monitor’s refresh rate. In the past V-sync has negatively affected the latency of a monitor.

Nvidia claims that Fast Sync will eliminate tearing while maintaining the low latency benefits. The graph shows the latency differences between V-sync and Fast Sync in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Which card should I buy?

If you want the best performance, the 1080 Ti is the obvious choice. However, not everyone needs this much power. Really, the 1080 Ti is only for those gaming in 4K at ‘ultra’ quality settings or those who have VR headset.

The GTX 1060 arguably provides the best bang for your buck in the range. It will happily play the latest titles in 1080p at maximum quality and can even handle 2560×1440.

But the 1050 (and Ti variant) are great upgrades for older PCs as they will also handle modern games at 1080p, and for between £100 and £150 represent good value as well. 

Of course, before choosing a specific card, you should also consider AMD’s options which are also great value for 1080p gaming. For the most up to date information, see our list of the
best graphics cards.

how to install a graphics card and – if you’re starting from scratch,

      5 GeForce GTX 1070 were very close This is logical, given that they operate at almost identical frequencies. From the histograms, you can see that the Gigabyte card is a little ahead, but you most likely won’t be able to notice this difference without special measurements.

      This state of affairs makes it very difficult to identify the best models.

      Absolutely all the GTX 1070 Ti cards in this test are excellent devices without noticeable flaws. There are some differences in dimensions: the three-fan Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G turned out to be the most compact, and the three-fan ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced edition was the largest.

      ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI cooling systems cope with heat dissipation without any problems and keep the GPU temperature within safe limits, leaving some room for overclocking experiments. By the way, with overclocking, these video cards based on the GTX 1070 Ti may well approach or equal the speed of the GTX 1080.

      The ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced edition turned out to be the most interesting in terms of external lighting design. It has the most advanced lighting system, but it also costs a little more than other participants.

      Like other Pascal architecture graphics cards, the GTX 1070 Ti-based models have an excellent performance/power ratio. According to this indicator, NVIDIA solutions have significantly outperformed competitors based on AMD GPUs in recent years.

      An interesting situation: according to NVIDIA, the power consumption of the GTX 1070 Ti should be higher than the GTX 1070 and be at the level of the GTX 1080. But according to our measurements, the GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1070 video cards are almost on the same level in this indicator, but the power consumption of the GTX 1080 turned out to be higher.

      The cost of GTX 1070 Ti video cards in our market is almost one and a half times higher than NVIDIA’s recommended prices. This is partly due to the novelty — models only appear on sale. But this is also influenced by pricing features (we have video cards traditionally more expensive than, for example, the US market), as well as additional demand due to the popularization of mining by video cards.

      With the release of the GTX 1070 Ti, the graphics card market didn’t change much. It’s just that NVIDIA has filled a small niche between their own video cards.

      At the same time, the user has an additional opportunity to more finely select a video card according to his budget in the class of high-end video cards.

      Review of video cards based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti from ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI.

      Filling the Niches

      12/15/17

      The GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards were recently introduced. They occupied a niche between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. We figure out why NVIDIA needed another model on the Pascal architecture and consider several new products based on the GTX 1070 Ti from different manufacturers

      See this article:

      Comparison of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, 1070 Ti and 1080 Reference Specifications Gaming 8G

      MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G

      ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced edition

      0003

      Histograms with test results

      In the GTX 10XX series of video cards, NVIDIA’s lineup of models from mid-range to high-end was lined up fairly evenly. There are clear performance steps between the GTX 1060, 1070, 1080, and 1080 Ti.

      But recently NVIDIA introduced another model — the GTX 1070 Ti. It is built on the same NVIDIA Pascal architecture as the other GTX 10XX series adapters and sits between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080.

      Curiously, a year and a half has passed since the appearance of the first video card based on the Pascal architecture (GTX 1080) until the appearance of the GTX 1070 Ti.

      Nothing fundamentally new in the GTX 1070 Ti . In terms of feature set and technology support, it has the same features as other models in this series.

      NVIDIA GTX 1070, GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1080 Reference Specification Comparison

      If you compare NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti with GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, you will notice that in terms of GPU characteristics (number of shader processors, texture units), the new product is closer to GTX 1080, but the memory type and memory frequency are the same as in GTX 1070 The GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1070 use GDDR5 memory, while the GTX 1080 features more advanced GDDR5X.

      Why NVIDIA Needed Another Series GTX 10 XX?

      One of the possible reasons for the appearance of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti can be the increased competition in the high-performance video card sector, associated with the appearance of the competitor’s new adapters AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64.

      insure yourself a little.

      Let’s also not forget about the high demand for powerful graphics cards associated with cryptocurrency mining.

      There is another factor, but it is based only on rumors and conjectures. GDDR5X video memory, which is used in the GTX 1080, is more scarce and more expensive than «regular» GDDR5. Accordingly, the GTX 1070 Ti is a good backup option.

      Everyone is equal, like a match

      1655 operating frequencies for most participants correspond to the standard .

      This situation has not been observed for quite a long time and even got used to the fact that manufacturers traditionally overestimate frequencies to one degree or another.

      This is no coincidence in this case. In models based on the GTX 1070 Ti, NVIDIA has obliged graphics card manufacturers to leave the reference frequencies.

      This is probably due to the fact that using a relatively small overclock of the GTX 1070 Ti graphics card will get too close in performance to the GTX 1080 and create unnecessary internal competition.

      But manufacturers still have some tools with which to influence frequencies.

      First of all, the actual Boost frequency of an NVIDIA GPU very often exceeds the set frequency for Boost mode. In what modes and by how much this excess will already depend on the manufacturers of video cards. In the table, we separately indicated the recorded maximum GPU frequencies of the tested video cards.

      Secondly, by installing a proprietary application, you can literally in one click switch the video card to the mode provided by the manufacturer with some overclocking.

      GTX 1070 Ti and mining

      The topic of cryptocurrency mining with video cards is still very relevant. The GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards are just perfect for this.
      They allow you to control overclocking and power consumption in a fairly wide range and you can quite finely select the settings for a particular algorithm.

      For most mining algorithms, as in gaming applications, you can expect GTX 1070 Ti performance levels between GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. The exception is Ethash, which is used, for example, to mine Ethereum (ETH) coins. This is where the GTX 1070 Ti can outperform the GTX 1080, as GDDR5 rather than GDDR5X memory is better suited for the Ethash algorithm.

      Separately, we paid attention to the manufacturer of the memory chips of the tested video cards. The ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced edition, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G, and MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G video cards in question had memory manufactured by Micron.

      Three GTX 1070 graphics cards were assembled for review: ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced edition, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G, and MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G . All models have modified boards compared to the reference one and are equipped with proprietary cooling systems.

      Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G

      You can’t call the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G board small at all, but when all three test participants are put together, it is clearly seen that this model turned out to be the most compact among them.

      The video card received an upgraded board compared to the reference one and a proprietary cooling system with a series of heat pipes and three fans.

      Fans stop when GPU temperature drops below 46°C and start when temperature rises above 59°С

      The board will occupy no more than three expansion slots in the system.

      The video card is powered by one eight-pin connector. Socket key prudently turned outward

      Eight-phase power (6+2 configuration) is used compared to six-phase (5+1) in the reference GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. The manufacturer emphasizes that the heatsink touches not only the GPU, but also the video memory chips through
      thermally conductive pads.

      The maximum temperature of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G GPU under load in our conditions was 67 ° C. This is a very comfortable level.

      Monitoring the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G in MSI Afterburner

      The fan speed was about 1700-1800 rpm. The video card is quiet, and while running in the case, you will hardly notice the noise of this video card against the background of other components. But among other members
      test is the highest value.

      Apparently, the effect is that it does not have such a massive radiator and slightly higher fan speeds are required.

      Despite the fact that NVIDIA obliged manufacturers to leave reference frequencies for solutions based on the GTX 1070 Ti, in the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G, presented in the test, frequencies still turned out to be slightly increased . Instead of the standard
      1607/1683 MHz for the base and boost frequencies, respectively, there are frequencies of 1620/1709MHz.

      And in the screenshot on the right, you can see how the GPU frequency settings of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G (GV-N107TGAMING OC-8GD) video card change when you select the preset overclocking mode in the proprietary application compared to the factory settings (left).

      Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G frequency vs. voltage curve provided by the manufacturer

      How it happened is anyone’s guess. Perhaps Gigabyte prepared this video card before the introduction of restrictions and did not remake it.
      This increase, combined with the highest GPU Boost frequency we’ve recorded of any other GTX 1070 Ti-based competitor, allowed the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G to marginally stand out from the competition in terms of performance.
      Note that it is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G with the GV-N107TGAMING OC-8GD index that has higher frequencies (pay attention to the presence of OC in the index). The GV-N107TGAMING-8GD version operates at reference frequencies. By the way, you will not find the GV-N107TGAMING OC-8GD modification on the official website (the situation at the time of preparation of the material). The manufacturer does not want to “shine” the GTX 1070 Ti model with increased frequencies?

      The only backlit areas on the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G are the Gigabyte and Fan Stop labels on the side panel. Light effects and backlight color can be customized. At the same time, Fan Stop also serves as a sensor. The inscription lights up when the fans stop

      Video card control using proprietary software

      The proprietary software allows you to select pre-installed board operation profiles, including overclocking mode. Various overclocking settings (frequency, power consumption, voltage, etc.) and monitoring tools are available. Not without
      backlight control options. In general, a fairly standard set that can be seen in software for modern video cards from different manufacturers.

      . slightly higher than competitors

      The MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G board has been significantly modified from the reference board. It uses a 10-phase (8 + 2 circuit) power system, which also provides for the presence of not one eight-pin, but a bundle of two (8-pin + 6-pin) power connectors. This solution among other video cards in the review is used only here.

      As many as two connectors for additional power to reduce the reviewers based on the GTX 1070 Ti, only this model has

      It seems that for the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G they borrowed a board from the older GTX 1080.

      Video memory chips are covered with a separate plate.

      MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G video card is large in height, but the manufacturer kept the width within two slots

      The SO of the video card showed simply excellent efficiency of . Under load and the temperature of the GPU remained at a low level (65 ° C) and the fan speed was very low (about 1000 rpm).

      But in our case, this application did not start (we used the latest version from the official site). Probably, the video card is still too new and the manufacturer has not yet managed to add support for it in this application.

      The published screenshots of the proprietary application were taken using another MSI GAMING series video card and are provided for review.

      The video card belongs to the ROG gaming product series. And from experience we can say that this automatically means the presence of a set of interesting advanced features.

      The board was the largest in the test both in length and width. It will occupy three expansion slots in the system.

      Unlike other GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards, this model has not one, but two HDMI ports. This may be important when using some VR systems, when you use one of the HDMI connectors to connect a monitor or TV

      Service LEDs are located next to the power connector. If the power wire is not connected, the red light is on. As soon as you connect the wire, the red light will change to white. We have been seeing a similar solution on ASUS video cards of different series for more than a year

      In most cases, this has little effect, but specifically in the case of my system, only this model from those participating in the test did not fit in length.

      A massive heatsink pierced by numerous heat pipes is blown by three fans. The manufacturer claims that the fan mechanism is specially protected against dust according to the IP5X standard, which should ensure durability. It is curious that such a feature in relation to video card fans has not been seen before.

      Fans stop when GPU temperature drops below 45°C and start when temperature rises above 57°C The Ti Advanced edition did not disappoint. The maximum GPU temperature of 63°C was the lowest in the test, and all this with a low fan speed of about 1200 rpm.

      How we tested video cards

      Video cards were tested without overclocking and without using branded profiles (OC, Gaming, Silence, etc. ), which usually become available when installing proprietary software.

      We compared the GTX 1070 Ti-based video cards we tested with the GTX 1080, which was the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X+ 8G, and the GTX 1070, which was the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G.

      As test applications to determine the performance of video cards, we used modern games that support DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, which have built-in benchmarks. The program also includes popular synthetic tests 3DMark 11 and 3DMark (2013).

      Each game used the maximum or high graphics quality settings. In games we used 2560×1440 pixel resolution . For this class of video cards, we consider this resolution to be optimal and in demand. 3DMark 11 tested graphics cards with the Extreme preset, while 3DMark (2013) used Fire Strike, Fire Strike Extreme, Fire Strike Ultra and the new DirectX 12 Time Spy test.

      Maximum GPU temperature and system power consumption (without monitor) were monitored in Metro: Last Light. It was in this game that video cards, according to observations, heated up most intensively and the maximum power consumption occurred.

      The system itself was operated outside the PC case (open bench) at a room temperature of about 21 °C. The noise level created by the operation of video card cooling systems was evaluated subjectively.

      The final score in the Performance category was based on all tests. At the same time, gaming tests, 3DMark 11 Extreme test, 3DMark: Time Spy test had the same weight in the final score. And the total weight of all 3DMark: Fire Strike tests was equal to the weight of one of the gaming tests.

      Histograms are normalized as a percentage with models sorted by test results. Specific results in terms of scores and FPS are also listed.
