What can I expect from this graphics card?
Experience a quantum leap in gaming with the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Seahawk X graphics card, which is powered by NVIDIA’s new Pascal architecture. The world’s most advanced GPU architecture delivers game-changing performance, innovative technologies and immersive, next generation virtual reality (VR). The card is power-efficient, with an 8-pin connector needed. It is designed for the PCI Express 3.0 bus architecture, which is also backwards compatible. The Seahawks X GTX 1070 comes with ultra-fast FinFET and high-bandwidth GDDR5 technologies. This, combined with support for DirectX 12 features, gives you the fastest, smoothest, most power-efficient gaming experience – up to twice the performance and three times the efficiency compared to the GTX 900 series.

The card is able to accommodate the latest displays, including VR, ultra-high-resolution and multiple monitors through the power of the new Pascal architecture. It is plug-and-play compatible with leading VR headsets driven by NVIDIA VRWorks technologies. This means you’ll be able to hear and feel every movement with VRWorks Audio and physics and haptics working together to deliver a truly immersive gaming experience. NVIDIA GameWorks technologies provide smooth gameplay and cinematic experiences and through NVIDIA Ansel you are able to capture 360-degree in-game shots, even in VR. Perfected for gaming now and in the future, the card also supports Vulkan API and OpenGL 4.5.

What is the performance like on this card?
An impressive 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM running at 8Gbps and a GPU (graphics processing unit) running at a 1607MHz base clock speed, 1797MHz boost, provides astonishing graphics-rendering performance. This means you can enjoy the latest games with settings maxed out. NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0 is embedded into the GTX 1070, which dynamically maximises clock speeds based on workloads and allows enthusiast-class controls such as temperature target and fan controls. The card also supports NVIDIA’s new SLI HB bridge, which doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture to deliver silky-smooth gameplay and the ultimate performance. With these features, this card offers the best way to enjoy surround gaming.

How can I connect to this graphics card?
A number of displays can be connected to this graphics card, with three DisplayPort, a dual-link DVI and HDMI ports provided. You’ll also be able to future proof yourself for higher resolution monitors in development, with support for up to 7680 x 4320 pixels through DisplayPort. Up to four monitors can be used at the same time, and with simultaneous multi-projection you can game without experiencing stretched viewpoints. This will improve performance in VR and improve display accuracy when using NVIDIA Surround.

NVIDIA G-SYNC provides a stunning visual experience, and with a compatible monitor you can minimise display shutter and input lag. Additionally, NVIDIA GameStream lets you stream GeForce GTX gaming experience to portable devices like the NVIDIA Shield.

How well can I overclock this card and is software included?
MSI has equipped the card with various features to ensure it is well cooled and has excellent overclocking potential. Equipped with a Corsair Hydro liquid cooling system and a silent fan, the GTX 1070 keeps super cool under pressure. This will let you keep your card cool when playing the most advanced games and pushing your system to its limits.

MSI’s Afterburner software provides an intuitive interface for you to access detailed information about the card and allows you to tinker with almost all aspects of the card. You can also run Afterburner on your iOS or Android smartphone and use the built-in utility Kombustor to test stability and thermal performance. Additionally, Predator lets you capture in-game footage as still images or videos at a push of a button.
