Boost Clock

The capabilities of the GTX 1070 are writ large in the maximum boost clock, getting darn close to the 1.9GHz mark we saw from the Founders Edition GTX 1080. Whilst the GTX 1070 might have less architecture, the fact that it's still a Pascal GPU shines brightly. We have started keeping track of average boost clocks and the 1070 average was actually 100MHz below the maximum peak. Its going to be interesting watching if the aftermarket coolers and PCB's can help keep the average closer to the maximum.

-edit- I know its not actually placed, but it is.

The power draw sold it for me. The radeon pro duo I had my eye on went up in price on me AGAIN and I've always wanted an SLI setup. If AMD release a game changer in the future I can shift these no sweat.Quote

Great review Tom! Any news on 1070 sli performance? I bought a new system with a strix 1080 and was told today the card will not in Uk until end of June at the earliest :/ I game on a X34a monitor and would be keen to see a comparison between the 2 when you get chance to see if its worth swapping. Cheers.Quote
