Any GTX 1080 Ti will be an expensive purchase but there are graphics card vendors meeting more competitive price points. Palit has always done well, particularly in the UK market, at delivering affordable graphics cards at similar levels of quality and performance to rivals like ASUS or MSI, who usually charge a considerable premium.
Palit’s range of JetStream graphics cards have consistently proven themselves worthy at KitGuru. In recent times the Palit GTX 1060, GTX 980 and GTX 970 have all performed strongly with scores over 8 out of 10. Today’s test focus, the Palit GTX 1080 Ti Super JetStream, is another iteration of Palit’s JetStream range.
Palit offers five variations on the GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards for prospective buyers – Founder’s Edition, GameRock, GameRock Premium, JetStream and Super JetStream. This Super JetStream model is not Palit’s highest clocked GTX 1080 Ti, that accolade goes to the GameRock Premium, but the Super JetStream is not far off with an out of the box boost clock of 1671MHz, up from the stock Nvidia boost frequency of 1582MHz.
The JetStream cooling solution is a dual-fan implementation, like the MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X, and Palit doesn’t skimp on quality or features either. There’s still RGB lighting, a backplate, dual BIOS with switches and a semi-passive fan mode. A GTX 1080 Ti that ticks all the boxes and that is competitive in price, what more could a PC Gamer ask for?
