But in this review we will answer this question for last time with Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming.

High Frequencies

First of all the greatest difference between Partner edition graphic cards and Founder edition graphic cards is high frequencies.

NVIDIA sells their graphic cards without overclock , we don’t know if they change it in future or not but it is like this for now. The partners are launching their cards as overclocked and it performs higher than NVDIA’s founder edition.

This frequencies are already embedded directly bios so users does not have to do any additional operate. You put the card and you’re running and you get higher performance than founders edition.

And Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming already overclocked graphic card. The boot frequencies of card in OC Mode is 1822 MHz  and basic frequency is 1620 MHz but of course it can change depending the game and heat. BUY NOW ON AMAZON


Cooling is also other difference between Founder and Partner edition. Founder edition has thermal heat pipes but these pipes are more in partner edition.

Also partner edition pipes are going directly to the GPU. We see that pipes of Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming cards contact directly with the GPU and this is a direct impact on cooling because even in maximum performance does not rise above 70 degrees.

To compare, we should say that Founder edition cards rises above 80 degrees.

Power Supply

Another difference between Founder and Partner edition graphic card is Power Supply. NVIDIA Founders Edition cards are not designed to be overclocked.

But it does not mean that founder edition graphic cards can not be overclocked. But partner graphic cards offer more advanced option to overclock.

This has two aspects. One of them is Hardware. When you put more phase to Power supply you can rise above the reference of TDP. The other way is software . With additional software programs you can overclock your graphic card with one click.

As a result , with all of this information we can say that Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1070 model is quite successful about cooling, power supply and software support. The card is above 70 degrees even in maximum mode and running quite.
