Palit GTX 1070 Series Released, GameRock & JetStream To Address Different PC Needs
Palit Microsystems has just released its latest Pascal based Palit GTX 1070 Series of graphics cards.
Being the younger sibling of Nvidia’s flagship GeForce GTX 1080, the GTX 1070 is one of the most-desired GPUs in the market right now. Built on the 16nm FinFET process, the card is currently dominating the price versus performance charts.
Based on the 3DMark Fire Strike benchmarks, the GTX 1070 beats out every last-gen card from AMD, including the R9 Fury X, as well as Nvidia’s GTX 980 Ti and Titan X, and that is at almost half the price, which is no less than impressive isn’t it?
With Nvidia now having officially put the GTX 1070 Founders Edition on sale, OEM partners have started unveiling their custom-designed GPU solutions, as well. Palit is the latest to release two series for GeForce GTX 1070: GameRock and JetStream. They are basically divided into two categories which are as follows:
* Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition
* Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock
* Palit GeForce GTX 1070 Super JetStream
* Palit GeForce GTX 1070 JetStream
Palit “GameRock,” as the name suggests, is aimed at enthusiast gamers who want to have the ultimate gaming experience. The video cards in the series are designed to offer the best graphics quality and thermal solution along with various game-related features.
Palit GameRock series has got RGB LED lighting that changes color in accordance with the GPU temperature. Other features include the dual BIOS to safeguard from the vBIOS error, 0-dB Tech for quiet operation, and GameRock Stylish Backplate to protect the card against any any physical impact.
Based on the GP104 GPU, the Palit GTX 1070 is equipped with 1920 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit bus. Palit claims its cards will offer a true cinematic experience thanks to the incredible speed and power of Nvidia’s most advanced Pascal architecture.
Palit didn’t reveal much about JetStream except saying the two series cater different needs of PC users. We’ll update you with more details as soon as they become available.
