Palit has always been a company of interest to me with new GeForce graphics card launches, as the Super Jetstream versions of the GTX 980 Ti were one of the best GTX 980 Ti's that you could buy. The company is back again with the GTX 10 series, with our first sample from Palit in the form of their new GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition.

GameRock is a brand new gaming series from Palit, with the company explaining that the cards are "designed for enthusiast gamers who desire to have the ultimate gaming experience." We have a great thermal solution, which Palit says will "make you become a real game rocker without any fears"... sounds good to me.

 

 

Palit has really amped things up with their new GTX 10 series graphics cards. The GameRock Premium Edition receives RGB lighting and a new rock-themed backplate. There's also a bunch of other features that Palit have thrown into the mix, including an improved cooler and dual BIOS.

Specifications

 

Palit has bumped GPU clocks up as expected, with 1670/1873MHz for base and boost clocks, respectively. Palit has overclocked the 8GB of GDDR5 from its stock 8GHz frequency to 8.5GHz, up 500MHz. We have a single 8-pin PCI power connector, keeping the power consumption under 170W.

The Card

Palit has used 2 x 10cm fans, something that will keep the card both cool and operating quietly - assisted by the TurboFan Blade which was inspired by the power of jet engines, according to Palit.

With the GTX 1070 GameRock being a 2.5-slot card, it's on the thicker side - but look at the heat pipes and cooler, they're beefy. The card hit around 63C, while the fans were spinning at just 760 RPM (31%).

On the back of the card, we have the GameRock styling looking very Rock Band-like, which makes me want to build a new gaming/karaoke gaming PC around this GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition graphics card. Oh, man.
