    Strix GTX 1070 Performance

    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to share with you the performance of the Strix GTX 1070 OC edition and how well it overclocks.

    The Gaming Mode and OC mode are Asus settings in GPU Tweak II-

    Gaming mode Core clock - 1632 MHz
    Gaming mode - Boost clock -1835MHz
    OC mode - Core clock - 1657MHz
    OC mode - Boost clock - 1860MHz

    Memory clock 8000MHz

    Some nice clocks indeed but if you're like me I'm curious to see what it can really do so I installed GPU Tweal II, set a fan profile and proceeded to overclock.
    Since I'm overclocking I will run the test in OC mode then I'll do a test with it overclocked to the maximum, we all know they leave us some room under the hood so we'll find out how much. I'll skip gaming mode but you can expect a tiny lower score with it since the clocks are slightly lower.


    I used the unigine valley gpu stress testing/Benchmark program to test for stability and to see the scores. I have it set to 2560 x 1440 resolution, ultra settings with no antialiasing, this is how I play my games with the NVidia control panel 3d settings set to high quality.

    Overclocked to the maximum with GPU Tweak II I was able to get the Boost clock to 2038MHz, over 2.0GHz that surpised me and amazed me at the same time, my matrix platinum 980 TI tops out at 1505MHz. Getting the Memory clock to 9342MHz is nothing more than astounding, that is a 1.34GHz overclock on the memory, the maximum temp was 61c.

    There are some nice features with the Strix 1070 and that is two fan headers that are controlled by gpu temp, I think this is a brilliant idea. I'd guess 75% of people liquid cool their cpu including me so now we have the option of having the fans ramp with the gpu instead of the cpu, again just brilliant. It also comes with a free year of Xsplit Gamecaster which is a $99.99 value, that's very generous from Asus other vendors may only give you 6 months.I haven't tried Xsplit yet but I'm going to install it and see what it's all about.

    And the Aura lighting? This is one of the coolest features about the Strix 1070, there is lighting in the front on the shroud and a lighted ROG logo on the backplate and you can change it to any color including white !

    And Ansel an advanced screenshot program.

    I'm very impressed with it's design and how it looks and performance is awesome and has great overclocking potential as you can see, going from OC mode to my overclock is quite a leap, a gain of 7 FPS and 14 max FPS and that shows they let a lot under the hood for overclocking.

    Aura is getting an update to sync the Strix 1070/1080 with an ROG motherboard that has Aura lighting. I'll do a performance test with crysis 3, that's still a pretty demanding game and I don't see 111 FPS, I'll post an average.

    Thanks meankeys - it's not as clean as I'd like it to be with all the wires but I don't notice them with the side cover on.

    Arne - I will install Time Spy sometime today/tonight.

    I installed GPU - Z and after doing this and comparing with GPU Tweak I noticed the Boost clock is going as high as 2063MHz and drops as low as 2000MHz while running the unigine valley benchmark, temp isn't a problem as it's only 61c. I set power options to prefer maximum performance in the NVidia control panel which normally would run the gpu at the Base clock but it still downclocks to 278MHz at idle.

    I'll see if I can get it to hold at 2063MHz.

    Maximum voltage is 1.093v, I'm not sure if we're able to add any more voltage than what GPU Tweak allows but temps say I can.

    Max Boost clock 2063MHz in GPU Tweak II, does this mean it's boosting to 2063MHz at times?

    Here's the Strix 1070 in silent mode, you can see there's about a 10% performance gain overclocked to the max and maybe more, if you look at the MIn. FPS there was an 18 FPS gain.

    I have a feeling the pascal titan is going to be a super monster gpu. With Maxwell the 980 Ti was faster than the titan x due to higher clock speeds but overclock them to the same speed and the titan x wins by a LITTLE.

    I think it will be a different story with the pascal titan and HBM2 memory, it should stomp the 1080 Ti by more than just a little.

    All right !

    Crysis 3 didn't work with the OSD in windowed mode so I used the new DOOM game, it supports Vulkan so let's see if there is a performance gain going from open gl 4.5 to Vulkan. Doom doesn't have a benchmarking tool so I just stood in the exact same spot and switched between the two. The test is done at 2560 x 1440, ultra settings, no AA. The NVidia control panel settings are set to high quality as well.

    Open GL 4.5 - 139 FPS

    Vulkan - 146 FPS, the OSD doesn't work with Vulkan enabled but it has its own form of OSD on the right which has a FPS counter.

    A gain of 7 FPS, that may not seem like alot but just switching to Vulkan does give a performance gain. 146 FPS is mighty fast, the Strix 1070 chews up Doom and spits it out with ease. I don't know about you guys but I'm very impressed with the performance of the Strix 1070.

    Next test, I'll see if I can cripple it with some AA.

    Yeah I'm really liking the Strix 1070 and this next test blows me away. I went for the gusto and applied the highest in game AA setting which is TSSAA (8TX) and the Strix 1070 just laughed. I had to double check and triple check this AA setting was working and sure enough it is, all other in game AA settings are x1.
