GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 HOF Review

The GeForce GTX 1070 Hall of Fame Limited Edition was a pretty nice card overall. The reference design shows naturally better results compared to the GTX 1080, and the results are balanced against the GTX 1080. Of course, it is possible to achieve higher performance results with overclocking. The card leaves it open for this.

Pros
  • Custom design
  • 3 fans + RPM key
  • Rear plate
  • Brace Support
  • Silent with global values
  • Performance
Cons
  • Big building
  • 1 HDMI port

Especially the card we like with its design, muscular structure is of course not suitable for every case; I also have to say that. In spite of its heavy structure, Brace Support brings with it a self-relieving card, white color design and LED lighting to create visual richness.

You can find the GeForce GTX 1070 Hall of Fame Limited Edition at the price of 1982 TL on the market now. In this sense, the card stands at a good distance from the counterparts in terms of price, so it does not force it to buy at the point of purchase.

Users wishing to have a special version of the GTX 1070 may prefer the GeForce GTX 1070 Hall of Fame Limited Edition. With the GeForce GTX 1070 Hall of Fame Limited Edition, you can play in Full HD, 2K and 4K resolutions.

Another member of the GeForce 10 family is the GTX 1070, GALAX Hall of Fame Limited Edition.

We are members of the GeForce 10 family in succession. We looked at GTX 1080 with Asus ROG STRIX O8G Gaming and GTX 1050Ti with GALAX GeForce GTX EXOC. Of course, we have already examined NVIDIA’s Founders Edition card. Now, finally, the GTX 1070 is with us. But this time, there is a model that is really interesting, especially with its design and additional features. Users who are especially interested in aesthetic design with its white color look like GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 HOF.

GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 HOF, which appeared in Computex last year, carries the NVIDIA GTX 1070 genes, but comes in as factory-exhausted as it does in its counterparts. The card, which is produced as Limited Edition, which is in limited stock, does not make much difference with its price. You can find this card at the price of 1982 TL on the market right now.

Muscle design

GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 HOF Review

GALAX, which has strengthened its products in the Hall of Fame family, clearly shows this in our model. The card, which looks totally cool with its all white color look, is designed with 3 fans. As in all 3 fan models, the card in your possession, of course, has a very large body; but this time the company went a bit too far and the dimensions were quite strained.

The length of the card is 330 mm, the height is 152 mm and the thickness is 55 mm. With these dimensions, the card that does not compare to each muscle was obviously not sitting in the Omen X chassis, which is our test system. That’s why we used it in a space test, another test system. In this sense, if you want this card, your chest must be quite spacious.

If you have the structure to show your interior, you’ll also love the GeForce GTX 1070 HOF. Because the card is already stylish with its white body, the system is accompanied by a Hall of Fame with a white LED on the upper side and it looks beautiful.

The back surface of the card is covered with a metal plate. Thus, the card is supported both in terms of coolness and durability, and the metal parts around the fan. As a result of the metal plate and the large structure, the weight of the card increases. we have a card weighing 1.26 kilograms.

The company offers a support bar named “FlexHold”, also known as Brace Support, which we see on similar graphics cards, even if you are aware of the weight of this weight. You put it on the card again with the help of a clamp in the box, then slowly unscrew it and lock it into the case. This prevents the card circuit from being stretched and damaged over time, especially in the upright position. That’s why we recommend you to use this support.

Infrastructure, heat and power consumption

GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 HOF Review

The card in our hand is undoubtedly based on the GTX 1070 genes, but as we say, it works better by overclocking at the factory. While the reference design operates at a frequency of 1506 MHz with standard clock speed, the card on hand offers 1657 MHz. The increase in clock speed is 1683 MHz for the reference design, but 1860 MHz for this card.

The card’s memory value is 8 GB. Again, the card that provides 8 Gbps of memory clock speed is 256-bit worth of memory interface width. The recommended power supply for the card is 500 watts and the TDP value of the card is 150 watts.

The GeForce GTX 1070 HOF differs from the reference design at the pin inputs. There is one 8-pin slot in the reference design, while the GeForce GTX 1070 HOF has two of these slots.

So, how much energy is the card consuming. Let’s get the results we get right now at this point:

From the GeForce GTX 1070 HOF let’s say we see 470 watts at the peak while the value we get when the card is idle is 152 watts. In this sense, the card is equivalent to the reference design of the Titan X. The R9 Fury X draws a bit more power from it, compared to the GeForce GTX 970 reference design.

When we look at the card’s connections, we see that there are 3 DisiplayPort 1.4 outputs and 1 HDMI 2.0 port. There is also a DVI slot. It would be nice to see that one of the extra DisplayPorts was replaced with HDMI here.

Another detail that draws attention between the links is the key. With this button you can increase the fan speed. Thus, the card that brings the rotation speed of the 3 fans to your finger tip produces an average result in the temperature values.

When the card is idle, it produces a temperature of 26 degrees, with a maximum performance of 79 degrees. If we compare this again briefly, we can say that the card is working warmer especially at the top of the R9 Fury X. Again the Asus ROG STRING GTX1080’dan above the 68-degree heat, Titan X reference design is cooler than 5-6 degrees. In the meantime these are the values we measure the fan speeds and stability. If you push the button on the back of the card and increase the fan RPM, you can of course run cooler. But this time the fan sound naturally rises. At this point you will find the balance now.

Performance

We got the temperature and power consumption values of the GeForce GTX 1070 HOF just mentioned and, of course, the gaming performance results we obtained with our benchmark, in our spacefitting system, which we mentioned at the beginning of the review. Well, what are the details of our system? now let’s get to know him briefly.
