EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Superclocked ACX 3.0 review: new card, new cooler

EVGA Pascal-card with new ACX 3.0 cooler tested

Introduction

EVGA also send us a custom card with the GTX 1070 GPU, namely the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC ACX 3.0. As the name indicates it is based on a new version of EVGA’s ACX-cooler. In this review we take a closer look at how this graphics card performs.


Looking at the last generation we saw that the coolers on the EVGA-cards were somewhat disappointing. While they were obviously outperforming the reference card in terms of cooling, they were quite noisy. For this generation EVGA designed a new cooler, that should perform a lot better. Nevertheless the cooler is relatively small: the card does not take up more than two slots, and it is not that high nor as long.

The clockspeed of the card is 1,594 MHz and the boos clock is 1,784 MHz, meaning it is clocked about 100 MHz higher in both cases when compared to the Founders Edition- clocked at 1,506 and 1,683 MHz respectively. The card uses the normal PCB and uses the standard 4+1 phase for power. Like the reference card it has a single PEG8-connector.

On average the EVGA GTX 1070 SC ACX 3.0 costs about 463 pounds / 549 euros, making it a lot more expensive than the 360 pounds / 427 euros that Nvidia said it would cost. However that price is based on some optimistic assumptions, but the severe shortages that there are at the moment also play their part in the high prices.
