Unboxing the GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition

The Founders Edition of the GTX 1070 Ti arrives in a sturdy box which can also be used for display.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition is made with premium materials and components, including a faceted die-cast aluminum body, and a thermal solution designed to run cool and quiet. Like the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Founders Edition boards, a dual-FETs power supply is used to improve power efficiency, along with a low impedance power delivery network and custom voltage regulators for better overclocking potential.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition uses the same high-end copper vapor chamber cooling used on the 180W GTX 1080 and even on 250W NVIDIA GPUs. This cooler provides enthusiasts with higher GPU Boost clocks and improved thermal headroom for overclocking.  And if you don’t overclock, you will have a very cool and quiet video card.

There is also a backplate with a removable section for improved airflow when sandwiching SLI’d cards, plus a SLI connector just like the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070 have.  The GTX 1070 Ti has a very solid feel to it.  

Just like with the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070, the Founders Edition of the GTX 1070 Ti uses a single 8-pin PCIe connector.  The Founders Edition is built around a radial fan and it is a very good blower design that efficiently exhausts its hot air out of a case.

The reference PCB measures 10.5″ and the connections are the same for all Founders Edition Pascal cards – 3 DisplayPorts, 1 DVI, and 1 HDMI connector.

Let’s check out the test configuration.
