Palit GTX 1070 Game Rock Review

Up Close

In a world of black and red graphics cards, and with the current vogue for monochrome offerings, the Palit Game Rock stands out from the crowd with its white and blue colouring. Whether you like it or not is down to personal taste, as looks are always subjective. We are somewhat in the middle ground as we can appreciate what they are doing and respect their decision to swim against the tide, but we're not wholly convinced that the final outcome was entirely successful.

The Game Rock logo on the back seems to be reminiscent of the Guitar Hero font. It's odd to pick a typeface so clearly intended to replicate a famous logo, yet pick one that was at its peak of popularity a few years ago.

The blue edge is the part that you'll see the most, and the Palit would be perfect for a system built around a Sabertooth or similarly white system scheme.

The heatsink is full of fins and just slightly larger than a twin slot offering. With plentiful heatpipes and two PWM fans the cooler on the Game Rock should dissipate what little heat the Pascal GPU generates with ease.

Looking at this exact card so i can retire my GTX 960 & 950 from folding duties.

Less power draw & more PPD for Team 98860

Whether or not i click buy today is another matter Quote

I wish the [email protected] bench was better tbh, Ive tried it on the cards here but it doesnt even really stress them that hard. If they make it more consistent and stressful then Ill add it as a feature to our reviewsQuote

I've noticed that even on the 960 & 950 they will only use 75% max power vs 100% all the time from a 660Ti etc

As long as they produce the ppd they can run at 75% all day but it does make you wonder if they were fully stressed what sort of performance / ppd increase would we actually see?Quote
