How does the GTX 1070 QuickSilver 8G OC differ from the GTX 1070 Founders Edition, and GTX 1070 Gaming X? Let's talk clock speeds, then. We have the same 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, which is clocked at 8GHz for the most part - while in OC mode it's 100Mhz faster.


We have the same 3 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, and 1 x DVI for display connectivity. The card has 1 x 8-pin, 1 x 6-pin PCIe power connector, drawing just 150W of power. There's no need for 500W+ PSUs with a fast card like this.



MSI has pushed the GTX 1070 QuickSilver 8G OC and its GP104 GPU to 1797MHz boost, in OC mode - but there are 3 modes.


GPU clocks:


  • Silent Mode: 1506/1683MHz
  • Gaming Mode: 1582/1771MHz
  • OC Mode: 1607/1797MHz


VRAM clocks:


  • Silent Mode: 8008MHz
  • Gaming Mode: 8008MHz
  • OC Mode: 8108MHz



Twin Frozr VI Still Kicks Ass


MSI has used its faithful Twin Frozr VI cooling technology on the GTX 1070 QuickSilver 8G OC, the same cooling tech used on its previous graphics cards in the GTX 10 series. There's nothing different here, other than the color scheme used.



Detailed Look




The big draw card of MSI's new GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC is the style, which we're going to look at right now.




On the back of the card, we have MSI's signature Gaming Series dragon logo - something I love.




On top, MSI has used Quick Silver branding with some LEDs that will light up when the system is on.




Here we go: the MSI Quick Silver logo lit up with its LEDs.
