Palit Super JetStream GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Card Review

A Closer Look
There are a lot of extreme looking GPUs on the market, and this is one of them. However, this is a lot more refined and understated, almost neutral in terms of aesthetics, and I love that. The monochrome design is sure to blend into any colour scheme really easil.y
The mixture of matte black surfaces, with the brushed metal strips on the top, and a mirror strip really give it a unique look and feel. Of course, the other thing that stands out is the size, as this card is on the hefty side of thick.
I love a GPU with a big cooler though, as that usually means several things. Most importantly, it should mean exceptional cooling performance. Of course, that will come from the combination of those huge heat sinks, as well as the two huge fans that are installed. The card can even run passively until it his 60c, making is literally silent for most day-to-day usage.
The cooling and the style of this card get another boost around the back. The backplate is a matte black brushed aluminum design, giving added cooling performance to the PCB. Of course, it’ll also provide added strength, which should prevent the card from drooping once installed.
The GTX 1070 Ti is said to be an overclocking powerhouse, so it’s no surprise that it draws from both an 8-in and a 6-pin power connector. All that power is tamed by those huge heatsinks too. Just look at the size of those three heat pipes at the back!
Hiding in a tiny recess on the side of the car,d you’ll find a small BIOS switch. This is great for those times you try to flash the card, or really screw up some advanced overclocking settings.
Overall, the design is a bit bland. However, it’s that monolithic style that I like to much and it’ll look great in any system.
Connectivity is pretty good too, with a DVI, HDMI, and three DP. Another nice little detail here is that honeycomb design rear ventilation. You won’t see this part much, but it’s the little details that add up.
