EVGA's GeForce GTX 1070 SuperClocked comes with the company's new ACX 3.0 thermal solution, which uses a dual-fan, dual-slot heatsink to keep the card cool no matter what you throw at it. The card is also the quietest GTX 1070 we tested so far - even quieter than the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming.

Looks like EVGA did a great job with the cooler this round. Performs close to the MSI one, while being much smaller. Part of it is thanks to the unchanged efficiency from reference, but still.

Well even Maxwell offers better peformance per watt still.

Nvidia are far ahead of AMD in this regard for sure.

This is the first custom Pascal design which is more power efficient than the FE card. Bravo, EVGA!

I would have grabbed this card right away, but my budget is way too low at the moment (cannot afford more than $150 for a GPU).

Perhaps it is time to use a more memory bandwidth heavy GPU bench, when it comes to overclocking performance?

Well I like the cooler somewhat but its design to me seems a bit to basic looking for my taste... But I like crazy looking things. Very nice and quiet though...

Overclocking is a bit disappointing and boring from it... Still waiting to see the FTW variants.

Overclocking on Pascal is just incremental. You should just aim for a silent card that hold the clock well and be done with it.

29 dB(A)? That's astounding!
Any chance we get to see how the FTW variant fares? Would like to see how the bigger heatsink and fans affect temps/noise and if there is more OC headroom.

It's a reminder of the markup we're being charged, I guess.

Cards like this make me wonder why we need 3 fan designs. This is the 1070 I wanted to get but it's £450 in the UK...when its in stock. Just too expensive at the moment.

Hi, I've always followed techpowerup for the comprehensive reviews and all the nice graphs, but this time I have a doubt that I can't dispel.
Of course all cards are benched on the same machine with the same drivers for all VGA of the same brand, as stated in page 5
"All video card results are obtained on this exact system with exactly the same configuration."
However in the table in that same page i read "AMD: Crimson 16.4.2 Beta" (dated april) while Nvidias are benched on June's drivers, is it a typo? Cause i wonder if RX480 (that is listed in the results) could even work with those :p

Thanks

I am curious as to why most of reviews on the GTX 1070's and GTX 1080's are all aftermarket video cards (MSI GAMING, EVGA SC versions, etc...) against reference cards (GTX 980ti's, R9 390's etc...). I have only seen one review were a EVGA GTX 1070 SC went up against a EVGA GTX 980TI SC and the GTX 980TI was faster.

390/390x with reference cooler doesn't exist. most reviewers are comparing aftermarket overclocked 390's against reference 970/980s. I wonder why people don't complain about that since most aftermarket Maxwell GPUs are 10%-20% faster than reference ones.

Maybe because that's the point of having a reference card? For reference, you know...
Sure, it makes comparing aftermarket card A to aftermarket card B a bit more complicated, but at least it shows what the custom versions actually bring to the table.

Ah I forgot to add the driver version for 480, fixed. Future reviews will also use 16.7.1 for RX480, which adds 1-2% on average

Sorry I didn't have enough time to fully think about what I was trying to say on my first post (I was at the end of a lunch break).

When the GTX 1070 Founders Edition and aftermarket versions are being reviewed they are being compared to reference style GTX 980Ti's and for the most part the GTX 1070 is better. One review sight knew that most people own a aftermarket version of the GTX 980Ti and so they included a Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming GTX 980Ti (along with a reference card) to show that a aftermarket GTX 980Ti for the most part was a superior card to the GTX 1070 Founders Edition cards. I personally purchased a EVGA FTW ($360.00) and EVGA Classified edition ($380.00) GTX 980Ti from 2 different people that spent $499.99 + tax for Founders Edition GTX 1070's. They paid more money for a slower card and other than a few new features, 2GB more memory and less power consumption they paid more for a lesser card. Even this review has a EVGA GTX SuperClocked GTX 1070 that I would have liked to have seen it up against a similar version GTX 980Ti. I am sure that down the road a 2nd and 3rd generation version of the aftermarket GTX 1070's will be superior to even the aftermarket versions of the GTX 980Ti's, but for now I personally would not recommend someone with an aftermarket GTX 980Ti selling it and getting a GTX 1070.

You really shouldn't be surprised by these shenanigans. Founder's Edition is just a reference model. Not a thing special about it. So when NVIDIA prices it higher than the price they suggest for AIB manufacturers, it's quite obvious the AIB's know where NVIDIA slyly is saying an appropriate pricepoint is.

I want to make very clear, the GTX 1070 appears to be a very nice video card. It smokes the GTX 970 and GTX 980. I just believe that reviews should help people with their purchasing choices and a large number of GTX 980Ti owners are selling their cards at huge losses to purchase a video card that is about the same as they already had and in some cases not as good.

doesnt the lack of async modules has an impact on that though?
on topic: solid card, but that price is a bit on the expensive side imo.
