Palit ranks the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti SuperJetstream below the GameRock Premium Edition, but uses the same board, but no Vortex fans. How good is this model compared to its own top model and competitor cards? This is exactly the question we have asked ourselves and we want to answer it with today's test.

The map follows the SuperJetstream line purely visually, even though some minor cosmetic surgeries have been performed. Of course, this does not make the card any quicker, but it is a little more respectable.

Since the actual performance of all board partner cards depends more on the actual boost clock achieved, and thus causally depends on the cooling, the power target and above all the quality of the respective chip, any test based only on benchmark bars is more of a Random snapshot of a single specimen. This is precisely why we have focused on the actual technical implementation of each model and have been able to document this very well with our equipment.

Unboxing, dimensions and connections

The accessories are limited to the usual three-handers such as DVD, manual and 8-pin adapters. Otherwise, there is only the card. We will discuss their exact board and cooling design separately later. The most important features are first summarized in a table:

Overview of installation dimensions, features and connections
Installation length:
28.6 cm (slot aperture to end cover)
Installation height:
12.5 cm (upper edge slot to top card)
5.0 cm (2.5 slot)
0.5 cm baking plate
1329 grams
Backplate: Yes, with passive cooling function
Cooling: Air
Horizontally aligned cooling fins
2x 10 cm (9.5 cm rotor diameter)
Connections Slot blend:
3x DisplayPort 1.4
1x HDMI 2.0
1x Dual-Link DVI-I
Other shots:
2x SLI Connector
Power supply:
2x 8-pin PCI-Express

Exterior views

Now let's look at the map from the outside. Palit, like many others, is back on a matte, graphite-coloured plastic cover that is haptic and visually fine. The days of red or gold-coloured plastic structures seem to be over here as well. The chrome-like application looks nice, but is extremely scratch-sensitive.

The cooling fins are vertically aligned, the two 8-pin sockets of the external power supply are installed rotated by 180°. The logo on the top is equipped with an RGB backlight and can also be customized by means of its own software.

In the case of the connections, only one HDMI output is used, which e.g. VR glasses are not very accommodating.


The GPU-Z screenshot shows us the most important key data in advance, whereby the actual boost achieved was of course higher with our model. This in turn relativizes such theoretical data a little, so that we really want to refer to the following test results later:

Finally, the whole thing again as a tabular comparison to the other relevant graphics card models:

Test system and measurement methods

The new test system and the methodology have already been described in great detail in the basic article "How We Test Graphics Cards" (English: "How We Test Graphics Cards") and therefore, for the sake of simplicity, we now only refer to this detailed Description. So if you want to read everything again, you are welcome to do so. However, we have improved CPU and cooling once again in order to largely exclude possible CPU bottle necks for this fast card.
