I may have won the silicon lottery with my card. Straight out of the box it boosts to 2025 in game, stays there rock solid despite stock clocks; even a 2 hour FurMark heat soak, only had it throttle to ~1900 @ 78 Celsius – at least bin 1 (if not higher) silicon, nice… My card came with Samsung memory, so that's another big plus, I have no idea if the ic vendor changes card to card, or if they all are Samy. The PCB is a reference design, should fit most waterblocks when they start coming out. HSF is fine, not amazing; the three fans are small enough that the card height doesn't extend past the top of the bracket, at a cost of extra length compared to designs with larger dual fans. The six heatpipe heatsink gets it's performance from extra mass, rather than a sophisticated design. You pay for that with a 2.7 slot width, and you really don't want anything other than a very small wifi or network card 3 slots down, the smaller fans will get blocked easily. But, it certainly performs well enough, Palit use the same hsf on the GamingPro 3080 – so on the 3070 it's perfectly fine. The backplate is plastic, unfortunately, but at least it's black and inoffensive.
TL;DR – solid, if basic, design that offers great value for money and outperforms more expensive SKUs. Nice to see that Palit use well binned silicon and Samsung memory in their basic cards. But, do remember that silicon lottery rules apply.
