    Sorry if I missed this somewhere, what is a zotac 1070 "supposed" to score? I get 12.8k in R4 which guessing is power limited.

    I don't want to flash the MSI vbios since I heard someone had a zotac cook on that.

    2cpu he mentions graphics score of 15700. the zotac and the msi (with the weird form factor) get a graphics score of 16200 i think...

    My zotac 1070 score averages 17400. The bios is the msi 1070 bios 86.04.31.00.0C. It strangely works better than an msi card. Don't know why.

    Did you by chance look at the TDP afforded to the "Dell" 1070?

    Just curious but maybe they designed it to work like a max-q so that it can be a traditional 3.0b form factor? Just throwing spit balls

    I think I've only quoted the total. Just ran one and got 17k Gfx score. The eBay seller replied saying its a MSI card. Not sure since I thought the overall should be higher than 12.8k but I'm not OC anything.

    He sent a link to a MSI card that is listed on flea bay currently (no association)

    That is with an OC of 110 mhz core 275 mem. I've never personally seen an MSI card score above 15400 or so even in a tornado but maybe I just got unlucky. This card did come with an MSI bios to begin with but it had the same TDP of 115w. Both worked in the Alienware 17r1 but the one I have on there now performs slightly better than the first. It does not appear to be max-q it is right in line with other 1070s
