Gigabyte GTX 1070 overview

  • 1Description

With an overclocked core and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 WINDFORCE OC 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.

This card features Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 2X cooling system. The cooling system uses two 90mm fans. The airflow is split by the triangle fan edge and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface. The 3D Active Fan feature provides semi-passive cooling, which means the fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming.

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
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.

    Gigabyte GTX 1070 reviews

    GeForce GTX 1070 WINDFORCE OC Edition Graphics Card is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy The 1070 Windforce OC is such a Great card it run 32C idle or lower and it peaks at 54C at full Load from benchmarks and In game plays with the tests i have done with my card:D So is short it runs cool and is a very strong card for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, powerful, stable - fantastic! If you're looking for a GPU that runs quiet, runs cool, supports all sorts of overclocking, and is just overall a beast, this is the GPU for you. Save yourself a little coin and avoid the pre-overclocked variations and do the work yourself. Games look gorgeous and the output doesn't skip a beat. Doom at 1080p with a constant 60 fps on a 60 Vizio is pretty flippin' sweet. I'm eager to push it even further.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing card First off, the card is HUGE. i have a full tower and had to rearrange some stuff in my case for it to fit. The card runs great. super silent, can ran all my games ultra settings on 1080p with 0 issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great balance of price/performance Bought it for gaming for my son. It's been really good so far. Crushes 1080 and 1440 gaming. Can do 4K on a lot of games too. Very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Graphics Board This graphics board improved my graphics immensely.
    Date published: 2016-10-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Card That will be More Than Adequate in A lot of Game The card performed extremely well in Unigine Valley. The only benchmark I tested it in so far. In actual games or simulations. Did very well on very high settings of First Life. First Life detected that I had a new graphics card and set it to very high automatically. In the texture intensive Bay City area. The FPS were from 25 to 70 depending on the direction of view and/or area. In X-Plane 10.51 not spectacular but still good except in some payware KJFK airport. I had to lower the settings at that airport. I had to lower shadows from medium to static, to only get 23 FPS. The airport is full of animations and objects. Every object that moves its shadow has to move with it, as well as buildings and animated and static aircraft. Most of my other settings in X-Plane 10 were quite high. At other airports I could put shadows back at medium and get higher FPS. Even at some other airports with animations, like KBOS (Boston Logan). In X-Plane 11 it is still in beta stage, so the FPS has not been optimised to the full yet. The FPS is quite a bit lower than X-Plane 10 but when it is released publicly the FPS should be much better. It is usually 10 lower in FPS than X-Plane 10. X-Plane is also CPU dependent as well as GPU. I have a i7 4770K with the turbo overclocked a bit to 4.2GHz. That means when X-Plane uses at least 2 cores at high %, they will be going at 4.2Ghz. If a game could use more CPU cores the throughput of physics calculations to the graphics card would be higher and it might use more of its potential. As it is with using my system and X-Plane the CPU is slightly under supplying the GPU video card so I have my doubts if a more powerful cpu would make much difference. It depends on the game a lot too. Does it depend on both CPU and GPU? How many cores can it use? As far as noise is concerned it is not much more than if the fans are not rotating, in comparison Intensive game to computer being idle.
