Palit Jetstream GTX 970 asserts its dominance, but silently.

For the full Guru3D rundown, follow this link: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/palit_geforce_gtx_970_jetstream_review,1.html

The Palit Jetstream is showing some very impressive noise levels. Much like the ASUS Strix, the fans do not spin up at all unless the card is under load.

 

The Palit Jetstream is clocked a fair bit higher than the GTX 970 Strix from Asus out of the box, but produces identical noise levels:

The Jetstream was able to squeeze out an extra average frame or two than its nearest neighbor, the Strix, in most of the gaming benchmarks, all while operating more silently. However, when overclocked, (silicone lottery in effect) the Strix was able to stretch its legs on the core overclock just a bit more than the Jetstream. However, the Jetstream managed to reach a combined memory clock of 7908Mhz.

 

The Palit Jetstream, with its competitive price, might just be a bargain among the 970 SKUs, if you're on a tighter budget. Silence vs. Performance ratio was something Palit took pride in during the last generation, and they seem to want to continue down this path.

Palit is an EU / Asia only partner for now, they do have the sub-brand PNY in USA but as far as I know their better cards never reach the Americas, only their cheap ones. It should still be possible to get it through Amazon.

Edit: It was discovered that PNY and Palit aren't connected in that way, they're just cooperating.

Jetstream is the cooler lol, Palit is the company. 

 

I recon Palit is alright, I'd probably take a Sapphire/EVGA or MSI cooler over it but still think that they are taking a step towards the big dogs.

Not surprising. ASUS GPU coolers have never really been anything to fawn over.

Not bad considering Palit 970s appear to be about 30 euros cheaper than other 970s, at least around here.

1. You're reading something wrong

2. The G1 is $56 more expensive.

The company is called Palit, Jetstream is the style of cooler or something.

Someone told Luke and Linus at CES 2017 to "Unban the legend known as Jerakl" and that's about all I've got going for me.

Palit Microsystems Ltd Taipei. The actual name of the company.

 

However, they seem to be two independent companies working together.

Both are at 39C on the graph

1. Celsius is the temp.

2. DBa is the noise level and the noise level of the Palit is a little higher (That's why it's over the G1 and not lower.)

Nope I stand correct.

Also in germany the price difference is 6€/10$ . 

 

Well, that may be true, but go to the overclocking page, you can see that the max overclock achieved on both cards were pretty much identical.

 

It's just the 'brute force' cooling of the Palit kicking in later/ higher in the fan curve.
