COLORFUL iGAME GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Vulcan XTOP Review

Published: 22nd Nov 2017, 22:12 GMT   Comments


Colorful is a popular brand in China. These cards are not offered in all markets (such as American or European), but you can find them in Australia. The Vulcan series takes a new approach in the premium graphics segment, with fancy features such as LCD panels.

I’ve spent the first few days with this card playing my favorite games at 4K (Rainbow Six Siege, Company of Heroes 2) and also finished full Call of Duty WW2 single-player campaign. It was a great experience overall, it was hard to make it sweat, even at 4K.

The TX 1070 Ti is competing directly with the Radeon RX Vega series, which are still not offered in custom flavor months after release. Overall performance is great and with extra overclocking, it is hard not to see 1070 Ti as a clear winner.

This is not a budget card for sure, the official price is 649 USD, that’s 200 USD extra over Founders Edition. It’s expensive, yes, but this is the only GTX 1070 Ti with an LCD screen.

What I liked about the card is how quiet the cooler is. The LCD is a nice touch, but there’s still a lot of work to be done here (such as pure hardware implementation).

If I had to choose between RX Vega and GTX 1070 Ti, I would choose the latter. The Vulcan XTOP is a great card but only if you can find it at a reasonable price.
