MSI GTX 1070 Aero overview

  • 1Description

With a slightly overclocked core and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 AERO 8G OC 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 a blower-style cooler. This cooling configuration is good for SLI or other configurations where space between computer components can be a concern. There is also a LED illuminated MSI logo, which can be controlled in NVIDIA GeForce Experience.

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.
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.
With CUDA, NVIDIA allows applications to hand off CPU-intensive tasks to the GPU. Your GPU is no longer just used for rendering graphics, but it can provide teraflops of floating point performance and accelerate application tasks, from real-time video rendering to fluid dynamics simulation. CUDA is used in many applications and games.
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 Aero reviews

    GeForce GTX 1070 AERO 8G OC Graphics Card is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for the 1070 I've had this card for about a month now, and it's been a beast of a card. My monitor is the Asus VG248QE 24-inch (1920x1080, 144hz) and I've been playing Overwatch on ultra settings at 120fps, Witcher 3 on high/ultra at 80fps, Fallout 4 at ultra (no mods) at above 144fps, and fully-modded Fallout 3/NV at 60fps (these two games aren't built to go above 60). I've gotten to overclocking it with MSI Afterburner to see how it fares, and it does decently - I've managed to squeeze out about an extra 20fps in Overwatch and 10fps for Witcher 3. However I don't think this card is really meant to be overclocked more than a bit, which is fine considering its price and how well it performs in general. Overall I'd consider this card to be phenomenal, and more than met my expectations. Now I'm spoiled and am constantly trying to tweak games to reach the 144fps cap, whereas on my old card I was ecstatic to hit 60fps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this for another system build. I purchased this version of the GTX 1070 because I did not want one that looked like the Founder's edition, plus it came in a bit cheaper. This card has exceeded my expectations. No issues installing it or the drivers. I need bigger monitors to take advantage of its potential.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing GPU for the price This is a real gem - very fast and quiet GPU. Put's to shame my older AMD R9 290 & Nvidia 970 cards.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Work in my PC - Power Draw Was Above Stated Specs The GPU card must draw more than 175 Watts as that is what I have available in my PC for graphics. I bought the card based on the MSI Specifications which I believe is incorrectly stated. I contacted MSI on two occasions and they were useless with their responses....absolutely diabolical responses, enough to stop me from ever buying MSI products again. However, B H Photo stepped up, understood the situation and allowed me to RMA for a refund. Thank you! I then purchased the EVGA GTX 1070 Founders Edition and it works....very happy, so that does draw less than 175 Watts. Thank you B H Photo & Video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good card for the price I installed this in my video workstation to improve system performance. It made a huge improvement in Davinci Resolve in both effects processing and rendering times. My render time for 3m30s 4K video clip went from approximately 1 hour to 6 minutes. It didn't really help much with Premier Pro except for GPU accelerated effects, the render time didn't improve at all. My workstation is near the bottom end for 4K but I don;t have much of a budget and this card was well worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSI/Nvidia .. hit one out. I bought this card on the 13th July 2016. This card was delivered to me on the 15th July 2016. I bought it to replace my GTX 960 Evga 2gb card. Very easy to install. I was lucky that my previous card was using a 6+8 pin for power, so I didn't have to do anything other than slot everything in. The monitor resolution I have is 1080p at 140Hz. This card easily maxes it out on every game I have ( Witcher 3, Fallout 4, etc.) I also use stereoscopic. I love the quiet function of the fans (they don't spin until the temperature rises over 60 degrees Celsius). I recommend putting this card on silent mode using the MSI gaming app, so the fans stay quiet. The extra overclocking doesn't make a huge difference in frames and I value having a quiet PC as more important. It was very well packaged with the graphic card being contained in an anti-static bag which I put my old graphic card in after installing my new one. My computer specs are i7-6700K (4 Ghz), 16GB DDR4 RAM (1600Hz), 650W power supply and this new graphic card. Overall, I definitely recommend this card to anyone interested in buying a GTX 1070. This is one powerful card. Yes, the price is higher, but that doesn't really change anything overall. The card is worth the price to me. This amounts to a card that is more powerful than the 980ti. And yet to have any major driver improvements. It also has 8GB of some highly overclockable GDDR5 RAM. A lot of consumers might be put off the cost, but 960s and the like are still going strong, so selling your old card will offset some of the pain. This thing will do 60 FPS at high stability throughout my full Ultra Witcher 3 game PLUS ini tweaks for shadows and foliage. That is something my 960 couldn't handle. At all. I waited to finish my playthrough of Witcher 3 specifically for this card, and all that time was most definitely worth the wait. The only thing better would be if a card could run Witcher 3 like that in 4K, but that is surely a gen or two away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bang for the money After using this board extensively for the last 4 months, I can easily say that it's an excellent option for both gaming and serious work (I do with it also photogrammetric calculations). It's even a bit faster than the monstrous 980 Ti. I'll probably order soon another one and connect them in SLI to boost performance even more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card, good value. Able to up graphics settings in all games and still get improved frame rates. War Thunder with most graphics settings on max looks great and gets from 120 to 400 fps.
