on July 1st, GIGABYTE announced the release of the GeForce® GTX 1070 XTREME GAMING graphics card, featuring innovative WINDFORCE Stack Cooling, distinctive RGB lighting and Xtreme VR Link for flexible output connectivity. GIGABYTE takes GTX 1070 to another level, delivering what they claim to be “unmatched overclocking capability for gamers seeking breakthrough gaming performance.”
Xtreme Cool with WINDFORCE Stack Cooling
The GTX 1070 XTREME GAMING edition boasts the brand new WINDFORCE Stack Cooling, providing much larger coverage of the heat sink with three 100mm stacked fans. Paired with the counter-rotating center fan and re-engineered fan blades, the cooler provides 10% boost in cooling performance compared to conventional 80mm triple-fan designs, while reducing turbulence to a minimum.
The silent semi-passive fans allow gamers to enjoy gameplay in absolute silence when the system is running light or idle. An LED Fan Stop indicator provides a user-friendly, instant display of the fan status. The heat-enduring double ball bearings ensure the card last longer. Beneath the fans are 4 composite copper heat pipes with large copper base plate covering interior cores for improved heat transfer efficiency.
VR Friendly with Xtreme VR Link
The Xtreme VR Link makes the GTX 1070 XTREME GAMING a VR friendly graphics card for immersive virtual reality gaming, offering 2 additional HDMI connectors at the front of the card. Without the hassle of swapping cables, gamers could enjoy extra output flexibility to either connect a VR device while using an HDMI monitor or connect 2 more HDMI monitors to create a multi-display surround gaming environment.
Packed with Gamer-centric Features
The GTX 1070 XTREME GAMING incorporates many gamer-centric features that will make the card a favorite for gamers. The X-shaped RGB lights on the shroud with the illuminating XTREME GAMING logo spark a stunning glow. Gamers are free to customize with virtually unlimited color options and light effects to make each gaming rig unique and personal.
Forged with sorted top-notch GPUs, the card guarantees supreme overclocking capability without compromising system reliability. The 10+2 power phases provide more stable voltage output for extreme overclocking. The use of TITAN X-grade chokes and capacitors also ensure ultra durability for a longer system lifespan.
The card offers XTREME protection with the thoroughly-applied aerospace-grade PCB coating to make it highly resistant to moisture, dust, and corrosive contaminants. The metal back plate further strengthens the structure while giving the card a sleek, clean look.
XTREME Engine Utility
