EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX Review (08G‑P4‑6573‑KR)

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX Review

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX is a new twist on the GTX 1070 and incorporates their new iCX cooler and pushes a 1594MHz base clock and a 1683MHz boost clock. The EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 iCX sports 4 + 1 phase power and a single BIOS chip as opposed to the FTW model that gets a 10 + 1 Phase and Dual BIOS. Our GTX 1070 SC2 sports a white LED that casts a nice glow throughout the chassis and draws attention to your GTX 1070 prize. Given a generous 8GB of GDDR5 with a 256-Bit bus with a memory clock of 8008MHz (effective) the GTX 1070 SC2 should have enough memory for 99% of all end users.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX pushes a GP104 core variant GP104-200-A1 with a Pascal design on a 16nm FinFet process 7.2 Billion transistors on a 314mm² die. As per the NVIDIA design the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX gets 1920 shading units, 120 TMU’s 64 ROPs, 15 SMs and likely a partridge in a pear tree. Other specs include 102.0 GPixels/s, a Texture rate of 191.3 GTexel/s and a floating point performance of 6,121 GFLOPS. To capsulize the geeky comments it’s packed with drool-worthy geeky goodness and will kick some serious FPS butt.

The newest addition to EVGA’s formidable arsenal of technology is the iCX cooling solution that includes nine additional temperature sensors to monitor Memory and VRM. It’s time video cards have independent temperature sensors that dependably read and report real-time thermal activity.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
