We all know what the performance was going to be right out of the gate: slightly better than NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition and MSI's own GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G. People wanting to buy the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC are buying it for the specific style, for a specific gaming PC.
It's an incredible card - as are nearly all GTX 1070s, but MSI has put some special touches on the GTX 1070 when it comes to the physical look. The performance is what we expected, 1080p/1440p 60FPS gaming is no problem for the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC, as well as 4K gaming - tone some details down, and you'll hit 60FPS easily.
MSI hits yet another home run with the GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC, as expected. It truly is a beautiful graphics card, something that I need to push MSI for - I need to keep the Quick Silver graphics card and use their new Z270 motherboards for a silver/black themed gaming PC. MSI, this isn't my fault - it's your fault for making such a great looking graphics card.
This is something I really admire about MSI as a company: there's no need for the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC, as they already have multiple GTX 1070s in their arsenal. MSI does this for the fans, for new markets, for emerging markets, for specifically targeted markets - like PC gamers who want to build a black/silver themed PC with the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC graphics card.
If you're in the market to build a new gaming PC, or even have a black/silver theme, the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC graphics card is the perfect choice. If I had to be pushing you, two of these in SLI would not only look great, but the performance would be out of this world.
