This is our new section for video card reviews, with DX12 and VR becoming a huge deal over the course of the last 12 months. We have just a handful of DX12 tests right now, so expect this section of the site and our reviews to grow considerably over the coming months.


The same goes for VR, where we have both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in house now. We will be testing VRMark for now, which is in Preview form, as well as our thoughts on VR gaming on the HTC Vive with the new GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming graphics card.



DirectX 12 Performance


We have 3DMark Time Spy Ashes of the Singularity and Hitman with DirectX 12, with the NVIDIA Titan X stomping all over every other GPU setup I've tested. Insanity.



















Overclocking Adventures - To Be Continued...


With the single 8-pin PCIe power connector, it's enough to handle the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming under intense gaming loads, but it has some room for a pretty good overclock. The OC Mode had its boost clock at 1822MHz, while I was able to hit 2025MHz boost when I overclocked the card. This resulted in a nice boost in performance while kicking the power up by 20W, up to 270W for our full system power consumption.


The additional performance was welcomed, as you can see in our 3DMark FireStrike benchmarks:




3DMark Fire Strike - 1080p





3DMark Fire Strike Extreme - 1440p





3DMark Fire Strike Ultra - 4K (3840x2160)
