    There is two Palit jetstream models, normal and super.

    Normal
    http://www.mindfactory.de/product_i...ream-Aktiv-PCIe-3-0-x16--Retail-_1094585.html

    costs 449€. Only 10 € more, and is definitely better, if you are in doubt.

    The super costs 469€, which is the one i opted for actually, but it is out of stock unlucky me so i am waiting for it. I want a gtx 1070 that goes beyond 2ghz and stays there. Not about to settle for 1900mhz or something like that. Returned the msi gamer x for that reason.

    The jetstream and super jetstream are similar but the latter comes with higher tdp and factory oc, and is supposedly better binned and handpicked for better oc'ing. I recommend getting the jetstream, or at least making an order with bank transaction as the type of payment just to ensure you get that price if it goes up, and you can always cancel the order if you want to check something else later on. You don't have to pay the money right away, you can just place the order and wait for monday, maybe the prices will drop even further by then. You won't get in trouble if you don't send the money, you are getting the card first once the money gets in their account first anyway.

    I cannot order from mindfactory(don't ship here) and where I shop online the cards I'm willing to get are:

    Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! €479 and 5years warranty(2 years + 3years if registered is really tempting).

    Gainward GTX 1070 Phoenix same price at €479 but I don't like the color scheme.

    Next is €488 for both Palit GTX 1070 GameRock and Super JetStream versions. Not willing to pay any more.

    Also all the above prices have additional fees totaling €18(shipping+payment fees).

    And I'm pretty sure Palit doesn't use any binning process. Its just out of the box OC added. :p

    Seems I should scratch that Palit DUAL and try to decide between the Palit JS or Zotac AMP! cards. :confused:


    P.S: I know my previous post seems kinda obvious and some might take as unnecessary but I'm just trying to help my self decide.

    Might be a bit of a downgrade in some instances.

    So i played with OC a bit and it has not gone well so far but I have not touched voltages yet. Will update when I have viable results.

    You.... :nerd:

    haha
    I'm getting tired of tweaking my way into performance with my Ti. recent DX12 benchmark started to make me think about jumping to pascal.

    Damn, when i think of that guy in mid-may that was offering me 600euros for y Ti, if i had done the deal the guy would probably try to kill me by now.

    As I've said before, 1070 is good for that upgrade twitch, sure it's still quite bad price/performance, but compared to 1080 it's gold. 970/980/980Ti will only continue to go down anyway.

    The only "smart" way when it comes to saving money with GPU upgrades is to buy on generation release and sell ~2 months before next generation release. But that still either leaves you dry for a while, or you have to have a secondary, but crappy gpu for such transitions.

    Or you could have luck, and get a clueless buyer, and hit the jackpot. :D

    1070 is not a good upgrade from anything more powerful than 970.

    I have GIGABYTE GTX 1070 G1 Gaming.

    Supposedly it has 8GB VRAM. I triued to run 3DMark FireStrike Extreme on insane settings and Witcher 3 with upscaling and Ultra but maximum VRAM usage capped at 4007 MB

    The hell?

    I'm sure it's cheap Chinese counterfeit gtx1070 with only 4gb VRAM.

    I "sidegraded" from a 980ti to a 1070 recently so that I could give my friend a more capable VR card for his Vive.

    So far it runs every game maxed out on my 1080p 144hz monitor just like my 980ti did, but while using less power.

    In VR it can handle maxed out Hover Junkers, and 1.7x Supersampling via Chaperone Switcher in Elite: Dangerous without triggering the 45 fps Reprojection feature too often (1.8-2.0 is GTX 1080 territory.)

    It scores a tad bit higher in all benchmarks, but not much really.

    It suffers from some of the same problems that the new drivers cause on the 980ti, such as the system completely lagging up and having to be restarted every few days.

    Basically, it feels like I'm using the same card as I was before, in every game I play, and in Windows.

    I'm not sure how much it will outperform a 980ti in future VR games that utilize nvidias 10xx series VR enhancements. Could be quite a bit.

    What card are you running and what are your clocks?

    Hey Viper! That's a nice card you there! :D

    If it wouldn't be too much trouble, can you spoil me with some feedback please?

    Like gaming/driver experience, temps, stock boosts level, max OC, coil whine if any, etc.

    Thanks. :thumbup:


    Pretty much the same expectations from all the info I gathered so far from either forums or reviews.

    Gaming quality/performance would be about the same as a 980Ti.

    Some wins or loses maybe but mostly about equal to a good 980Ti or a bit better.

    Also, just curious - what's everyone's idle temperatures for their GTX 1070?

    With ~30C env. temp mine (GIGABYTE 1070 G1) idles at 37-38C with 40-43% fan speed power.

    Compare to my old:

    MSI GTX260: 35-36C with 38-40% FAN SPEED
    GIGABYTE GTX670: 30-31C with 30% FAN SPEED

    similar env. temp

    It just weird it is so damn hot. Is it normal for these?

    You can see them from the image 2126/9.5g..
    The card was the cheapest one on our market :3eyes:Gigabyte WF2 OC 1070
    Stock cooler is surprisingly good for only 2 fans and heat-pipes considering these summer heats over here :)
    Some benches run as high as 9.8 to almost 10ghz on the memory w/o loosing performance.
    AVP benchmark is a good example what gddr5 is capable of:

    Here's 3dmark at almost 24/7 settings... just lifted the fan speed for my calmness:
