Colorful isn't a company known for having a design department that follows Dieter Rams' school of thought. But perhaps the graphics card maker is onto something with its crazy designs, and it's just added another one to its arsenal: the "iGameGTX1070 X-TOP-8G Advanced Limited" graphics card. If you'll pardon us, we'll refer to it as iGame, for short.
The most striking feature in this new card is the design of its cooler. Not content with something as prosaic as using three fans of the same size, Colorful opted to use two 90-mm spiners on the outer ends of the card, and a smaller one in the middle dubbed an iRing. The central fan is lit up from underneath by a ring of RGB LEDs, making it look like a futuristic space engine of some sort. The ligthing appears to extend to the card's iGame logo on the side, too.
Colorful didn't design the card just for looks, though. The iGame's GPU is clocked at a healthy base speed of 1657 MHz and a turbo setting of 1860 MHz. You'll need two eight-pin PCIe power adaptors to feed the card's 8+2 power phase setup. The output section is the standard GTX 1070 selection of three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, an HDMI 2.0b port, and a DVI output. Thanks to TechPowerUp for the heads-up.
