MSI GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G Video Card Review

Today we get a chance to look at one of MSI’s newest cards in their Pascal lineup in the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G video card. This GPU isn’t different at all under the hood when comparing it to the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G we reviewed as far as the upgraded PCB, power phases, and Twin Frozr VI cooler. It’s more of an aesthetic change and to add another option to their Gaming lineup that isn’t in their established red and black color scheme.

Being it is silver and has LEDs, it can fit in with a lot more themes than the regular Gaming X would. We know the looks are different, so let’s get to looking at what else is may be different and see how it passed our testing! Read More
