Right off the bat I tried setting the memory boost to +500 and it just instantly crashed my computer. This is the first time I am attempting overclocking so I am no expert in it and I have been reading around that the Micron memory of the GTX 1070 is not good for overclocking and there is a need to update the BIOS to fix that. The GTX 1080 in notebooks will feature its full 10Gbps GDDR5X, as in the desktop counterpart, and the 1070 and 1060 units will use 8Gbps memory. We were able to take the GTX 1080FE another 200MHz (+12% boost) on the GPU, and another 1Gbps (+10%) on the memory clock. It will either state GDDR5 (Samsung) or GDDR5 (Micron). Update November 3, 2016: MSI have now provided an updated VBIOS to fix the overclocking memory issues that some users have found with their GTX 1070 cards running Micron memory. Overclock.net > Graphics Cards > NVIDIA > The definitive GTX 1070 Micron memory thread ... show themselves if the voltage has to increase from idle levels of about 0.775v or below to full power with a large memory overclock that typically exceeds +400 from the reference memory â¦ Re: Gtx 1070 FTW overclock. Re: GTX 1070 SC overclocking 2016/09/14 18:45:33 Was able to get to 2138mhz core and 4406mhz memory with no issue. The GTX 1070 has a power target overclock limit of 112% So with overclocking you need to push the slider all the way to the right for the full 112%. Overclocking will increase GPU performance by increasing core clock and memory while at the same time lowering tdp. 2016/08/07 14:02:47 Yes has false marketing, since your card is not a reference product, but retain the same voltage settings of the reference product, it does not make sense any pay more for a product that should theoretically be better but â¦ What an awesome gpu the Strix 1070 is, it performs very good at 1440p runs cool and overclocks extremely well, especially the memory. The "memory type" field is the one you're looking for. Greetings, So I have bought a new rig yesterday and was very excited to get the monster GTX 1070 and I have few questions about it. So my prognosis right now is that most GeForce GTX 1070 cards will all run at roughly 2.0 to 2.1 GHz maximum with a few exception here and there. EDIT: For those of you with micron memory there is a vbios update that helps with micron memory overclocking stability, check in GPU-Z under memory type it will tell you if you have samsung or micron memory. Traditional overclocking, were you just adjust (increase) the core voltage, power limit, core clock, memory clock etc, doesnât seem to work well anymore with the new GeForce GTX 1070, 1080 or 1060 graphics cards. Overclocking GTX 1070. Don't think it'd be worth trying to push more. Discussion in '2015+ Alienware 13 / 15 / 17' started by Claytankozmo, Jan 7, 2017. Above: Acer Predator 15 with GTX 1070.
