And we are back with another report. This edition has some interesting cards for HTPC builders.
Let’s kick off with new PNY reference cards, the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 (aka V2). It’s unclear how much different then are from the V1, which to my knowledge only have different stickers. These cards are using default clock speeds for GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.
MAXSUN is Chinese sub-company of PALIT/PNY/GAINWARD group. So most of their cards are similar to their designs. One exception is that those companies never make Radeon cards, unlike MAXSUN. In fact, MAXSUN even has their own JetStream series for Radeon cards, and this triple-fan RX 480 model is the example.
MSI has unveiled world’s first low-profile GTX 10 graphics cards. Those are based Pascal GP107 GPU. MSI gives you the option of 1050 or 1050 Ti. If you purchased one of those cards over the weekend, please share your feedback in the comment section below.
Here’s the latest addition to our database. Before you ask, this is the only picture released by HIS, so we don’t have any other to share. I’m actually quite surprised by the color scheme, but I hope black & silver option will now be used HIS more often. So unlike MSI, this card is not low-profile, but single-slot. This way you can add two cards to your system using the space of one. This model is factory-overclocked to 1090/1220 MHz. What’s interesting is the fact that it has no power connectors.
