Test Setup and Boost Clocks

Test Setup

Clock Speeds

The MSI managed some excellent GPU Boost 3.0 clock speeds, breaking past the 2GHz barrier. Now we know that peak boost clock isn't everything, but that average boost clock is just as important. The MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X managed an average boost clock of 1.9GHz. Only 100MHz shy of the maximum. One thing is for sure, it's a consistent performer.

Nice review, Shame about the price. my 970 cost me about 280 (and it wasn't the cheapest) and the cheapest 1070 on overclockers is about 370. big price increase from the last generation.Quote

Great review. I got my first MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X the other day and i love it. The new cooler is very quiet and keeps the card at only 69c when my card is fully overclocked and over volted. My manual overclock takes the card up to 2050mhz +100mhz on core and +500mhz on memory stable. I was able to clock the ram up to +600mhz and it was stable in benchmarks but crashed on long term gaming.Quote

That is due to the fact that the 1080 has what would be ti performance and 1070 delivering what would be seen as 1080 performance. A douchebag move by nvidia to raise the prices and milk the market even further. I'm starting to wonder if the TI will be priced as a titan card which is what I'm waiting for but if that will be the case I'm going AMD.

At least AMD is pressuring them in the mid tier market with their new releases and Nvidia has no new card in that range released yet, but I'll bet we won't see the TI until Q4 maybe even a Q1 next year.Quote

Performance has nothing to do with anything. Nvidia just thinks they can drive prices up. Nobody gave them the finger when they pulled that first Titan stunt. This very same card is starting at 599€ in Greece. Bought my first 980Ti for 650€.
I will not be supporting them anymore.

You forgot to do a noise chart, how much quieter is it compared to the 1080 thanks to the lower power draw?Quote
