MSI GTX 1070 Founders Edition Overview

  • 1Description

Based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs in addition to an HDMI 2.0b output and a DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1070 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 1920 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.

For cooling, MSI implemented NVIDIA's blower-style cooler with vapor chamber cooling technology. This cooling configuration is good for SLI or other configurations where space between computer components can be a concern.

VRWorks
VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.

VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.

NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
NVIDIA Ansel
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
SLI Ready
With a compatible motherboard and a connecting bracket, two or more NVIDIA GPUs of the same model can combine processing power using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI). How the cards work together can be customized to suit your preferences. Alternate frame rendering has each alternating card prepare the next frame, essentially multiplying the capabilities of a single card's maximum capable frame rate output. Each card in the configuration can also be used to improve anti-aliasing by being able to process an image in parallel with the other cards before filtering out jagged edges.

NVIDIA's SLI HB bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture. Delivering smooth gameplay, it's an effective way to enjoy surround gaming and it's only compatible with the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 graphics cards.

Note: The benefits of SLI will vary based on component configuration.
CUDA
NVIDIA's parallel computing platform which enables an increase in computing performance by harnessing the parallel nature of GPU processing. CUDA compatible applications can assign intensive parallel computing tasks, such as real-time video rendering, to the GPU to process, freeing up the computer's CPU to run other tasks.
G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 3.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.

    MSI GTX 1070 Founders Edition Reviews

    GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Graphics Card is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent card. Quiet and pretty. I purchased an Oculus Rift, and was disappointed to find that the minimum requirements for video adapters were enforced by the Oculus software in a round about way. It refused to even install on my system with Crossfire 6950's, because ATI's latest drivers will not install on them, and Oculus wants to find a VR SDK in the drivers. I bought this card to replace those, and to kick ATI to the curb for abandoning driver support for my older cards. It's a very nice upgrade though. Perhaps 300% of the performance of older cards in tandem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast card for the price. Although this is the plain vanilla GTX 1070, it is still overclockable beyond stock settings. Since this replaced an aging highly overclocked GTX 660 Ti, this card was the perfect drop in replacement. Now I can play the new Doom much faster than before with full detail at 1440p and somewhat at 4K and now with Vulkan API for Doom released I can go 4K with everything with hardly and drops below 30FPS using a Core i7 4771 Haswell CPU and 16GB of memory. Fast card!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GPU! Amazing graphics card. It plays GTA V and other titles very smoothly on ultra at 1080p. It does not get hot nor loud in my opinion despite being a blower style. I reccommend this for 1080p and maybe 1440p if you're okay with possibly dropping settings a bit at that resolution a couple years from now. I don't upgrade often, so I'd like for this to last a long time at max settings so I went with 1080p over 1440p.
