MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G Review


MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G Testing:

Finding out just how much gaming FPS performance the MSI GTX 1070 Ti  Titanium 8G can deliver will consist of running it and comparison cards through the OverclockersClub.com suite of games and synthetic benchmarks. This will test the performance against many popular competitors. Comparisons will be made to cards of a range of capabilities to show where each card falls on the performance ladder. The games used are some of today's newest and most popular titles, which should be able to provide an idea of how the cards perform relative to each other.

The system specifications will remain the same throughout the testing. No adjustments will be made to the respective control panels during the testing to approximate the performance the end user can expect with a stock driver installation. I will be testing the cards at their stock speeds to see how they stack up and will test each one to find the maximum stable overclock. The cards will be placed in order from highest to lowest performance in each graph to show where they fall by comparison. Resolutions of 1920 x 1080, 2560 x 1440, and 3840 x 2160 will be used.

  • MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G: 2100MHz Core, 2258MHz Memory

Overclocking Pascal-based cards from NVIDIA has proven to be well worth the time and effort that you put into it. The gains you see from the increased clock speeds are measurable and definitely drive a higher level of FPS performance. Since last year, I have had the opportunity to test more than a few Pascal-based cards and found that, for the most part, between 2000MHz and 2075MHz are where the retail cards end up finally failing. The memory speeds depend wholly on the type of memory used, whether it be G5X or GDDR5, which is used on the MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G.

Seeing as how the Founders Edition GTX 1070 Ti fell, I started this card from MSI off at the max clock speed of 2050MHz stable on the core. This speed proved stable, so I pushed a bit further and found that the card could run in some games at speed in excess of 2114MHz with some voltage tweaking, but could not run through the whole test suite. This meant backing down the clock speeds a bit and found that 2100MHz was as good as it was going to get with this card.

The memory speed on the Founders Edition card came in at 2262MHz. I found this card able to manage that speed, but had to drop back just a bit to get the card fully stable at 2258MHz on the 8GB of GDDR5 memory.

MSI, as usual, was able to get this card to perform quite well with the use of its Twin Frozr VI cooling and Military Class components. The combination when the core is mounted on the custom PCB is a winner. Getting an overclock on this card proved a bit more fruitful than just about every other Pascal-based card I have looked at. Again, there were no surprises, good or bad, when it came to this card.  


Maximum Clock Speeds:

Testing for the maximum clock speed consisted of looping Unigine Heaven 4.0 for thirty minutes each to see where the clock speeds failed when pushed. If the clock speed adjustment failed, then the clock speeds and tests were re-run until they passed a full hour of testing.
