Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition Review and test

In this article we will introduce you with a stylish and productive company the Palit graphics card, namely a modified model GeForce GTX 1070, which has established itself as an excellent gaming solution. New Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition stands out from the competition pleasant appearance, a proprietary cooling system with a number of technology and the availability of LED-backlight. The advantages include video and very high factory overclock, which makes this model one of the most powerful GeForce GTX 1070 on the market.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition: PACKAGE CONTENTS

Packing Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition is made in the execution of the rainbow nice and bright graphic arts industry. Model name emphasizes especially on a dark background. The box is equipped with a convenient carrying handle video. On the front side, developers noted modestly supported by technology, the total amount of video memory of 8 GB and belongs to premium series.

The reverse side of the package is reserved for the description of the main advantages of the video card. Here there is the technical specification of the model in several languages, including Russian. Familiar images graphics accelerator and there are no screenshots of the games, and they could add the information content.

Along with the card in the box we can find package, which in addition to the usual disk with drivers and user manual, the developers put the power adapter.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition: APPEARANCE

The company extended the model Palit GeForce GTX 1070 to five versions, which are divided into two lines – familiar JetStream and newfound GameRock. They are characterized by only cooling system design and frequency response.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition received a bright white-blue cooling housing with gray insert. This combination of colors we see for the first time. New stands large and two large fans with translucent blades.

Video length is 285 mm, width – 133 mm and a PC model covers almost three expansion slots. Novine not be called small, however, it allowed developers to use massive cooling radiator, which allows the Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition remain fairly cool and quiet.

The reverse side is hidden behind monolithic bekpleytom, which protects the card from bending. The plate emblazoned inscription line names and a few stickers with the identification data.

On the side distinguishable black band, which was independent LED-backlit logo. The developers have provided a flexible configuration m choose one of pulsation modes.

In addition to slot PCI Express 3.0 x16, novelties power is provided through an additional connector on the side of the video card. Next you will notice another unspecified connector, however, it is only used on older models – Palit GeForce GTX 1080 GameRock. Note ease of connectivity through expanded latches.

A closer inspection of new items next to the connectors for SLI bridges the slot found in bekpleyte. It hides the switch between the two chips BIOS, which is not so often seen on the NVIDIA graphics cards. This will allow a failed firmware restore performance graphics accelerator, and sew two profiles with the settings, for example, with the default parameters and acceleration model.

To display an image on the novelty test provided quite a standard set of interfaces: one DVI-D, one HDMI 2.0b and three Displayport 1.4.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition: COOLING SYSTEM

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition Review and test

The cooling system on the Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition is a massive cooler with two 100mm fans, the crosspiece in the graphics processor and bekpleytom. The cooler is fastened with four spring-loaded and the same number of conventional screws. In addition to these two wires are connected board with backlight and power turntables that have a small length, which slightly complicates dismantling of the video card.

In use the cooler base copper insert which is in contact with all the heat pipes and the crystal. Developers have used a large aluminum cooling pad for all the memory chips.

The two-section is used as the coolant radiator dialed plurality of plates that penetrate the five heat pipes. The diameter of the latter is from 6 to 10 mm. All connections are soldered carefully.

To improve the efficiency and performance of the cooler height of the ribs was increased by almost half, which leads to large size video.

For the active part of the two fans meet production FirtsD with FD10015H12S marking. Impeller diameter was 95 mm, 12 V at a current of 0.55 Amps, and the rotational speed is in the range 0 – 2500 rev / min.

After removing CO bekpleyt remains fixed to the PCB by thirteen cogs. Thermal spacers is not, so the base plate heat from the PCB does not give.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition: PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition is built on a modified PCB black with a glossy finish. Engineers redesigned the PCB all the key areas used by Dr.MOS phase power technology and solid-state capacitors.

Graphic processor NVIDIA production was 1 920 cores, 64 rasterization unit and 120 texture units, produced in the 19 week 2016 and got a protective frame.

VRM power subsystem has eight phases is now responsible for the GPU, and one – for video memory controlled PWM controller uP9511P.

On the reverse side of the printed circuit board at the head of it is the point of measuring voltages and grounds with resistors that disable the protection on the current strength and maximum voltage. Nice find for overclockers and enthusiasts.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition: TESTING

Testing took place on the stand with the following configuration:

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K;
  • Cooling: Thermalright Archon;
  • Motherboard: MSI Z97 Gaming 5;
  • RAM: Kingston HyperX Genesis 8 GB (2X4 GB);
  • Hard drive: Transcend 370S 256 GB;
  • Power Supply: Chieftec APS-1000C 1000W.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition boasts one of the highest acceleration among classmates. So the core frequency up to 1671 MHz, and the video memory has not gone unnoticed: 2127 MHz against 2002 MHz reference.

The graphics card idle stop fans, which corresponds to its own “0-dB Tech» technology and temperature for internet surfing is kept at around 44 ° C.

Testing, we begin with temperature indicators in gaming applications and benchmarks. After 10 minutes of “race” cooling system Palit GeForce GTX GameRock Premium Edition 1070 could stabilize its value at 71 ° C under 1110 total revolutions / min or 44% of maximum power. Video boost to 2063 MHz, but average at around 2012 MHz.

Look at the noise readings over the entire range of operation of the cooler. Measurements were noise characteristics with a digital sound level meter, with a distance of about 30cm, the minimum limit of measuring noise is 28dBA noise level in the room is equal to 28dBA, 32dBA details below can be considered absolutely noiseless, the error can be 1,5-2dBA.

Here Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition demonstrates the wonders of quiet and efficient cooler. In automatic mode, CO is almost inaudible, even in the open stand, only when it reaches 70% of the card ceases to be quiet.

There were no acceleration of our guests. For this purpose, the fan speed was fixed at around 60% (~ 1500 rev / min), PoweLimit value was raised to 114% and a voltage of 100 mV in MSI Afterburner program. As a result, the frequency of the graphics core was increased to 1746 MHz and the video memory – up to 2402 MHz.

For a visual reflection of the growth acceleration we used synthetic benchmarks and popular computer games.

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition: CONCLUSION

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition Review and test

The Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition can safely assign the title of one of the most interesting and successful models of GeForce GTX 1070, the difference between an efficient cooling system, high acceleration, and enhanced power system. Perhaps the major disadvantage is the large size, which are derived from the size of the radiator.

As for the rest, if you’re in the system unit has enough space to accommodate nearly 30 cm graphics card, which takes up three expansion slots, the Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock Premium Edition is a good choice
