MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G 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, the Zero Frozr cooling package has the fans idling at Zero R.P.M. when the core temperature is less than 60 °C, giving us a passively cooled result, in this case, at stock speeds. Once you throw a thermal load on the card, the cooling ramps up at 60 °C and keeps the card a whopping 18 °C lower than the Founders Edition card. Pretty impressive for the Torx 2.0 ball bearing fan-equipped Twin Frozer VI Cooler. Overclocking the card and ramping up the fan speed to 100% is going to increase the noise profile somewhat, but not to the point that it is really noticeable outside the chassis. When overclocked, overvolted, and with the increased load from a higher core voltage, the Twin Frozer VI cooler runs 6 °C cooler than the 250 watt-rated Founders Edition cooler.

The higher CUDA core count on the GTX 1070 Ti FE showed an increase in power consumption over the GTX 1070 and this card from MSI shows a bump in power consumption over the Founders Edition card. At stock speeds, the MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G is using 17 more watts than the Founders Edition card. This sees a bump up to a 26 watt delta when overclocked and overvolted.  Pretty much the expected result with RGB lighting and dual fans to add to the power usage. Even so, with a fairly high-end water cooled rig, you can get away with a good 500 watt power supply to run your system. Something that could not be said just a few years ago!
