MSI's new GTX 1070 Quick Silver rocks silver styling

MSI's new GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G graphics card looks awesome

MSI has countless GTX 10 series graphics cards, and aren't stopping with the announcement of their new GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G graphics card, rocking a new 'ice-cold' silver look. It looks great, with a tweaked Twin Frozr VI cooler, and overclocked GPU.




MSI has two models of its new Quick Silver graphics cards, with the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC and the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G graphics card. The overclocked model has higher GPU and RAM clocks, which we'll break down now.




The overclocked GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC cranks up to 1607/1797MHz (base/boost, respectively) under its OC profile, while the Gaming profile sits at 1582/1771MHz for base/boost, respectively. MSI overclocks the 8GB of GDDR5 up to 8108MHz on the Gaming/OC profiles, up from 8008MHz on the Silent profile.


Moving onto the stock Quick Silver 8G model, which has its OC profile hitting 1531/1721MHz for base/boost, respectively - while the Gaming profile is set at 1518/1708MHz.


But it's the cooler and style/look of the Quick Silver card that makes it stand out, with MSI using its Twin Frozr VI cooler to keep the GP104 GPU and 8GB of GDDR5 nice and cool. But it's the style of the Quick Silver that has me gasping, as it will look amazing with MSI's Titanium Series motherboards - now we just need two of them in SLI and we would have a monster-performing gaming PC that looks awesome.


We have the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC on the way, so expect a deeper look at the awesome looking card in the near future.
