NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Roundup: EVGA, GALAX, MSI, ZOTAC

By: Anthony Garreffa | NVIDIA GeForce GPU in Video Cards | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

Not Much Difference

 

There isn't much difference in the out-of-the-box performance of our GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, no matter if it's the Founders Edition or a heavily customized card. Where the difference comes into play is the cooling technology, cooling performance, whether it's a 2/2.5/3-slot card and its PCIe power connectors.

NVIDIA makes a compelling GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FE card, but the EVGA and ZOTAC offerings are just so much better. Not only do we have more performance, but there's a hell of a lot more overclocking headroom with the custom cards. On top of the additional OC headroom, the custom GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards have better cooling technology so reaching those high GPU/VRAM clocks will be much better on your card in the long run with the improved cooling tech.

 

 

EVGA's custom GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 GAMING was the best of the bunch, where I could get the GPU pushed up to a huge 2112MHz or so. ZOTAC was the second-best with its GPU reaching 2037MHz before I had issues. As for the 8GB of GDDR5, the EVGA GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 GAMING was the best again, maxing out at around 4485MHz resulting in a delicious amount of memory bandwidth gains for FREE.
