MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Titanium – Overclocking
Overclocking the GTX 1070 Ti is really simple. Download the widely used MSI Afterburner and simply bump up the CPU clock speeds, memory speeds, power limit and temperature limit. I add 200MHz on the clock speed, resulting in 1807MHz base and 1883MHz~2038MHz boost. For the memory, I added 400MHz resulting to a final memory clock speed of 2202MHz.
I could do +250MHz on the GPU and +450MHz on the memory; however it would crash on some games or benchmark test. Thus, I settled at the clock speeds you see below.
With the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Titanium overclocked, temperature also went up; but only by a few degrees Celsius. And the TWIN FROZR VI with TORX FAN 2.0 are doing a great job at keeping the graphics card cool, while remaining silent.
I only tested the overclocked performance with four game titles since I was using their built-in game benchmark for consistency. The results of the overclocked performance for the synthetic benchmarks are already reflected on the Synthetic Benchmark Result page.
Here are the results I got with overclocked MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G:
As you can see from the results, overclocking the MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium, we were able to squeeze out more performance from the graphics card. It was able to perform (almost) on par with the GTX 1080. That’s one reason why NVIDIA prevented AIB partners from selling factory overclocked GTX 1070 Ti because it would perform on par with a GTX 1080, at a lower price; thus cannibalizing the sales of the GTX 1080.
Let’s proceed to the next page and discuss the results further and conclude this review.
