Power Consumption


All of our GeForce GTX 1080s have been scattered with power consumption, with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition and my entire Core i7-5960X test bed consuming 250W. The GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition sits at around 215W, while the overclocked GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming sits at 250W. When it's overclocked, the GTX 1070 G1 Gaming card uses an additional 20-35W more power, while it uses an additional 20W on average.






Temperature & Noise


GIGABYTE has a cool graphics card on its hands with the GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming card, with the card sitting at around 63C under load. The fans would spin up and keep the card cool, but you couldn't hear the sound coming from the fan when you were gaming at all - you'd really have to be in a quiet room to notice it.
