NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition Testing:

Temperature Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8x AA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a twenty-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

 

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0 1920x1080 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

Power Consumption:

Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine Heaven Benchmark version 4.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A fifteen-minute load test will be used to heat up the GPU, with the highest power usage recorded as the final result. The idle results will be measured after fifteen minutes of inactivity on the system with the lowest recorded power usage as the final result.

Settings

  • Unigine 4.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1080 resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 
 

 

Looking at the thermal results, you can see that the 250W rated cooling solution will keep the Pascal core at just over 82 °C with both the GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti FE cards. Meanwhile, the massive cooler on the RX 580 does what it should. Overclocking the card and ramping up the fan speed to 100% increases the noise of the card from dead silent to you can hear it outside the chassis. This is an intended effect that drops the operating temperature by 20 °C.

The increased CUDA core count on the GTX 1070 Ti FE shows an increase in power consumption over the GTX 1070 and should be the expected result. This shows that even with an upper-end, mid-range six-core processor-based system, you can get away with a good 500 watt power supply.
