Galax GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX-SNPR White: The card you want for Christmas

By Kenny Yeo - 2 Nov 2017

Temperature, power consumption & overclocking

Temperature

Thanks to its massive custom cooler, the Galax GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX-SNPR White recorded a maximum sustained operating temperature of just 70 degrees Celsius even under load. In addition, the card was very quiet even when the fan was spinning madly under heavy load.

 

Power Consumption

The Galax GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX-SNPR White’s power consumption is on the high side, presumably due to its uprated power supply system and lighting system. At idle, it consumed about 10W more than a Founders Edition card. At load, the Galax card’s power consumption goes up to 383W, which even surpasses the more powerful GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. 

 

Overclocking

The Galax GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX-SNPR White has decent overclocking potential. We managed to raise its base clock speed from 1607MHz to 1792MHz and its boost clock from 1683MHz to 1868MHz. We also managed to boost memory speeds from 8000MHz DDR to 8560MHz DDR. This gave us pretty significant increases in performance. Overall scores on 3DMark improved about 8% overall and were very close to that of the GeForce GTX 1080’s scores.
