PNY GTX 1070 XLR8 OC Gaming 8GB Graphics Card Review
Peter Donnell / 5 months ago
Not all graphics cards are created equally, such as this GeForce GTX 1070 from PNY. It takes the stock card and makes it even faster than before. PNY is well-known for their premium quality aftermarket graphics cards, and the XLR8 OC Gaming delivers faster clock speeds, a powerful cooling solution, a slick design, and hopefully fantastic performance too.
The stock GTX 1070 delivers a 1506/1683 stock and boost graphics clock, while the new card from PNY ups that to an impressive 1607/1797 MHz, quite an improvement, and one that should no doubt deliver improved performance. OF course, extra power is required to do so, with the card pulling a 150W TDP, and while it still uses the same 8-pin connector, the factory overclock does mean more heat, so that triple fan cooling solution should help keep things nice and cool, even when pushing the card to its limits.
Equipped with all the latest features you would expect from a 10xx series card, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 is a robust chipset, so let’s jump in, take a closer look at what it has to offer, then fire it up on our test bench!
