The specifications of the cooler are way higher than the GTX 1070 and Founder’s Edition. The PE base clock’s at 1,746MHz core, boost speed of 1,885MHz. It overclocks the memory from 8,000MHz to 8,500MHz. It probably has to do with the enormous cooler, which is 46mm in height, 133 wide and 285mm long. It has an ultra-thick heat sink with copper base to handle the heat from the GPU.
