EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming Spotted, Looks Impressive with Dual-fan ACX 3.0 Cooler
Photos of EVGA GTX 1070 Superclocked Gaming have hit the web thanks to folks over at TweakTown.
It seems like EVGA has a bunch of custom-designed GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics cards in store. The company recently unveiled GTX 1080 Classified, GTX 1080 FTW and GTX 1080 SC, all with their next generation ACX 3.0 cooling solution.
EVGA opted for a new design, giving the shroud a fresh new look, along with black / white color scheme, making the models look really amazing.
EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming
At Computex 2016, the company had all the afore-mentioned cards on display, along with EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming. This new card from EVGA appears to be based on reference PCB with single 8-pin connector.
The GTX 1070 SC comes with a dual-fan ACX 3.0 Cooler, which has received mixed reviews from graphics enthusiasts. Right now, we don’t know how well this new cooler performs compared to the solution found on the Founders Edition. This is all we know about EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming for now, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more details.
Nvidia GTX 1070 Specs, Performance & Availability
The GTX 1070 is based on a cut-down version of 16nm Pascal GP104 silicon. The GPU features 1,920 CUDA cores, 15 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs. It is clocked at 1506 MHz base clock with boost clock speeds rated at 1683 MHz.
Nvidia is using 8GB of GDDR5 memory on GTX 1070 which is spread across a 256-bit bus, delivering a total bandwidth of 256 GB/s. Further, the card pushes around 6.75 TFLOPs of compute performance from a chip built around 7.2 billion transistors. TDP sits at 150W which is powered through a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.
The 1070 also supports 2-way SLI configurations with SLI-HB bridge. Display outputs include 3 Display Port 1.4, HDMI 2.0b and a dual-DVI-D port.
Performance-wise, the GTX 1070 initial benchmarks show the new Pascal based card exceeding the performance of both GTX 980 Ti and Titan X. It beats the previous gen flagships by about 10 per cent, with an overall 12-14 per cent lead in minimum frame rates.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 will be available for purchase in both reference and custom variants on June 10th.
