Some interesting developments.

On 8 May I said that FE was NVIDIA competing with their partners, not just a reference board. I didn't elaborate as I didn't have anything concrete, at best it was a rumour passed on to me.

Lately I've tested +- 60 GTX 1070s and GTX 1080s and I can't say I'm thrilled with the outcome. Basically without fail, FE cards can hold boost speeds of 60-100 MHz higher than customer cards - I've tested Gigabyte G1 Gaming, Gigabyte Xtreme Gamer, MSI Gaming X, EVGA SC, Asus Strix, and FE cards from both Gigabyte and EVGA.

There is a very definite pattern of FE holding speeds significantly faster than customer cards - I'm talking passing GPUPI32B on a FE at speeds that cause a custom card to instantly fail or go into driver recovery.

There's more though, although this needs more testing so take it with a grain of salt. GPUPI1B is consistently around 150ms faster at the same clock speed on FE than G1 Gaming (the only card I've compared it to so far). I saw this completely by accident and it certainly needs more testing.

All in all, from what I've seen, NVIDIA pulled a real #$%^ move by making the FE untouchable by partner cards :/

I forgot to add - 150ms is huge when consecutive runs are varying by under 30ms.

Wow this is very interesting results. I have a fe that is a pretty good overclocker but was thinking about replacing it with a gigabyte Xtreme or amp Xtreme.

Isn't the superclocked EVGA just a founders with different fans?

I gotta say I was concerned about the lack of second power connector on my FE but after reading these results I'm pretty satisfied.

It's not really a fair comparison with water in the mix and the associated costs added but I seem to be holding higher boost clocks then most aftermarket cards are able to push on average.

Granted if I was using the blower I'm not sure I'd be happy but as situated things seem to be working out.

Now if only someone can figure out how to flash a higher voltage bios or unlock voltage without a physical mod and I'll be thrilled with the card.

The best GTX 1080 is Palit GameRock.

Only 30dB under load, the quietest card TPU have tested. Idle is 0dB.
It hits 2030Mhz with stock clocks.
post #59 of 218
Stock clocks and noise tell you nothing about GPU quality, and it seems NVIDIA is pre-binning GPUs before sending them to partners.
post #60 of 218
I got the Gainward Phoenix GTX 1070 thanks to this thread and it did not disappoint. Idles at 35c and hits 65c under load while remaining completely silent. Couldn't recommend it enough.
