With nvidia, manufacturers makes small changes to the original design : this is things like the clock speed or the memory size.

I want a gtx nvidia card based on the pascal micro‑architecture : this means I want :

  • an underclocked GeForce 1080 which consumes less than 160W
  • Or a Geforce 1070 which uses GDDR5x memory.
  • Of course, it is possible I’m wrong and that such modifications aren’t possible. I want nvidia, because their Windows driver is the only one which have an option to force trilinear filtering in all games. Dec 29 '16 at 22:06

    @NZKshatriya : yes, and my idea is such manufacturer modifications doesn’t exist. But given some manufacturers overclock their products, many their exists an underclocked 1080. Dec 29 '16 at 23:11

    The lowest power consumption that I can find is 180w. What wattage is your current PSU and how much wattage do your components currently draw? Generally, you want a little wiggle room between what you are drawing, and the max rating on the PSU. Dec 29 '16 at 23:26

    Not one. From what I can tell GDDR5x starts with the 1080s. The lowest wattage rating I could find was 180w(+) and suggested a minimum of a 500w PSU. Dec 30 '16 at 0:14

    You could force a lower wattage limit with a overclocking utility. It is very, very unlikely that you'll find a GPU that's clocked lower than stock, in a 3rd party card or otherwise.
