Palit GTX 1080 Ti Super JetStream 11GB Review

Our acoustic measurements are less precise on this mid-range test system, the noise floor of the totally quiet testing room is 34 dBA as measured with a Benetech GM1351 Digital Sound Level Meter.

We take our measurements with the decibel meter on the top and middle section of the case, overhanging the side panel (PSU side, not Motherboard tray side) by exactly 1 inch to avoid any airflow pressure coming from the exhausting H100i V2.

The underlying noise level of the system, emitted by all the non-GPU hardware combined, is 35 dBa thus anything above this level can be attributed to the graphics cards. The PSU is passive for the entire power output range we tested all graphics cards in and all CPU and System fans have a fixed fan speed completely isolating them from any changes in temperature across the system.

Noise levels were measured after 5 minutes of load under three scenario: Furmark, Unigine Heaven and desktop idle in sequential order with 2 minutes downtime in between each test.

Palit’s Super JetStream GTX 1080 Ti is not the quietest card on test but does very well to reduce noise levels over the Founder’s Edition card. It’s a couple of decibels louder than the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti which is noticeable but it’s still a very quiet card overall.

We measured around 1250-1350 RPM for the fans under heavy loading and unlike many other graphics cards the temperatures or fan speeds didn’t increase even when this graphics card was being used for prolonged periods of time. At idle the fans would switch off.

    People around me get 1070/80 and 580/70 and I’m like “My radeon 7850 is just fine” πŸ™
    I need an upgrade.

    This card uses a very good quality 12+2 power phase VRM. It has 6 doubled phases + 2 real memory phases which makes the VRM run cool.

    For example the MSI Gaming X 1080ti uses 8 real phases and this spreads the heat on fewer components which generates more hotspots.

    Please correct the article, thank you!

  • 7850 isn’t far off a R9 270/X or 370, and slightly faster than an RX 460, and even the 560 for that matter. You’re not really missing out on much except efficiency.

  • Nikolas Karampelas

    While yes in older titles they are not very different, in newer titles 560 will just fly away because of better and more efficient cgn cores. Also the 4GB of VRAM will make a big deal because I have the 1GB version (stupid decision, to save 30 euros back then) and it shows.

  • True, i’ve a 2GB R9 270X in the pc which is hooked up to the tv, its only a 720p tv which is shite but its good as nothing needs more than the 2GB lol, but in terms of raw power theyre roughly the same, got it overclocked to 1100mhz core and 1500mhz memory while undervolted, runs really cool, friend has an RX 460 for 1080p gaming and cant really say much more except than its got 4GB of vram, though even at stock it runs hotter (suprisingly) and pulls more power?!

    AMD needs to make a big step forward, i held out on upgrading in the hopes of vega beating the 1080ti but as soon as the frontier edition dropped i jumped right onto that 1080ti, modded it to remove power target and it sits at 2025mhz 24/7 along with 12ghz on the vram up from 11ghz.

  • Mano Dio

    You got this particular card reviewed overclocked to 2025mhz? There is an older version of it, the plain Jetstream one, any ideas how much that one can be overclocked by? I can’t find a proper review for that other card.
