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

EVGA Precision XOC & Overclocking

For overclocking we went to the brute force method and went to max volts and max fan, as keeping the Pascal core cool is paramount. Set your priority on Precision to temperature control just in case, but we didn’t have any problem with thermal properties so in the end we set priority to Power Target.

EVGA Precision XOC for EVGA iCX graphics cards comes with a new sensors tab so we fired up Kombusters Furmark test and enjoyed real-time thermal readings on 10 different components! This is the stock clocks shot of Precision XOC.

We like to verify clocks with GPU-Z  and as you can see everything on the EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX is as advertised.

Our max OC was +147MHz core and the memory went up to 8812MHz effective and 2203MHz real so we aren’t seeing any shortage of overclockability on the SC2 model!

Here’s our GPU-Z verification of the OC with the base clock at 1742MHz with a boost of 1932MHz and the memory spot on at 2203MHz real.

At the EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX stock speed we got a hefty 15205 on 3DMark Firestrike.

With our OC applied we boosted the Fire Strike score to 16153 so we have a nice productive OC with a decent boost in score!

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

  1. Congrats, nice review. I’m waiting for the review of the GTX 1070 FTW 2 to compare if it’s worth paying more for it
