In this video we’re going to be taking a look at Nvidia’s / MSI’s GeForce GTX 1070 with the custom GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X graphics card based on the pascal architecture. This video is NOT sponsored (not money exchanged hands), and we were sent this GPU as a sample for review purposes only.
We’ll be checking out the cards build quality, performance in games and benchmarks, MSI specific applications and features and also have a look at the Pascal architecture.
What first struck us about the Gaming X was the high build quality and asthetic of the card. While beauty is subjective, from my person opinion, it is one of the best looking GPU’s I’ve personally used.
To the rear of the card is a simple black back plate with MSI’s Dragon Logo emblazed onto it. It’s simple enough asthetically to not be overbearing – but its primary purpose is to keep the GPU cool. MSI have also opted to use their Zero Frozor fan technology to help keep the GPU as cool as possible while under load or operation – more on this in a second.
The Gaming X features the usual plethora of connections – SLI fingers for those who need to run high end displays, 3X displayPorts, 1 HDMI and a single Dual Link DVI-D connection. For power, need both a Six and an Eight pin connector, for the cards power draw (with no user overclocking) is 150W.
The gaming X combines the companies Twin Frozr 6 and Torx 2.0 Fan. The company claims the fan design pushes 22 percent extra air to help keep the card cool under load. We can confirm that the card is virtually silent under usual operation, and even pushing the fans to 100 percent manually the GPU was quieter than the majority of GPU’s in under their normal operation.
As a note, the cards fans do not spin if the GPU is under 60 degrees, and thus light gaming or regular desktop use and the fans will sit totally idle.
