Gainward GTX1070 & GTX1080 GLH Phoenix Review




We have two versions of Gainward's Golden Sample Phoenix cards, and we see how they stack up to the competition.

I was watching the review, and a thought came to me I wonder if there is an advantage to getting a card reviewed after a few driver updates, and it's like you read my mind.

I have the Gainward GTX 1070 Phoenix. I also tried the GS and the GLH bios. My stock bios only goes up to 109% powertarget and that's too low for high overclocks. Both the GS and GLH have 114% powertarget, much more workable. I can maintain 2050MHz as minimum clockspeed for my graphics card. Memory goes beyond 2300MHz.

GLH could be cherry picked, my graphics card wasn't able to go that high on the clockspeed. Firestrike was borderline stable with +70mv. (my graphics card barley responds to voltage)

The cooler is absolutely awesome. On many previous graphics cars I had waterblocks. With this card that's not necessary.
With a quiet fan profile (slightly more aggressive than stock) the graphics card get's 55 degrees during Witcher 3 (V-sync activated, not 100% load).

You can find all the bioses at Techpowerup, currently 'under unverified' section.

Great video/review!

Tom, I was able to change the color, but I chose to deactivate the led. Once the is set to off, the led remains deactivated permanently until altered (not dependant on software, let stays of during booting for example).

How does this compare to the Strix OC?

Is it the regular Asus Strix cards that are featured in the benchmarks. The OC are perhaps closer to the Gainward cards?

I'm considering the following 1080 cards right now: Asus Strix OC, Zotac AMP Extreme, Gainward GLH Phoenix or Gigabyte Xtreme gaming.

Any good particularly good reasons to pick one over the other, other than availability (which kind of sucks right now)?

UPDATE: Aaaand I'm stupid, it says right there on db87s post: "You can find all the bioses at Techpowerup, currently 'under unverified' section."

I go sit in the corner of shame
