Software Windows 7
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 is nearly twice as fast as the GTX 970, easily beating the $1000 Titan X and GTX 970 SLI at only $379/$449. It is built on the same platform as the GeForce 1080, using the same GPU and cooler, but with GDDR5 memory instead of GDDR5X. As expected, power efficiency is amazing, and overclocking works well too.

Thanks for the review W1zzard :)

Any idea when the reviews for the AIB 1080/1070 will be out ? :D I'm especially interested to see which card is the most silent (since they seem to have about the same performance once overclocked)

This card looks like a steal. Well, not the FE, but the regular 1070. Let's hope availability won't be an issue.

I "need" this card and preferably before summer hits, its already getting bloody hot. My top card in sli is melting almost lol. Should be a huge jump going from GTX 760's SLI to a single GTX 1070.

Thanks for the review. Found my next bang-for-the-buck GPU. Now I'll just have to wait for what the other third-party manufacturers come up with in terms of fans/coolers (I'm looking at you, Gigabyte, Asus, EVGA, Zotac and others). Excellent job, NVIDIA!:clap::peace::toast:

Nice review as always.

I would say It's a 980TI custom with 100w less watt usage. Can easily cool it with Aftermarket cooler.

Thank you for the review W1zzard, very detailed as always. ^_^

I actually wonder how many people see these tables you create, can people really not see how they are being done in? :



In any case; it's a fantastic GPU and I think I will definitely get myself a GTX1070. (Just to add this, because I have to, not because I want to)

It makes no diff, bc numerous reviews are showing that the 1070 is NOT faster than Titan X, proving Nvidia's claim is nothing but PR hot air.
Right? :laugh::laugh:

I thought the 1070 FE would not have a vapor chamber like the 1080?
Yeah, i think thats the case. Nvidia oficial site does not mention vapor chamber for the 1070, but does so for the 1080.

I dont think it makes much diference anyway, all radial fan coolers seem inadequate. Higher temperatures; higher noise. Only use case is if there is no other way to remove the exausting air of the case. Which seems to be almost never, since even itx cases manage to do so easily.

Huh, well that's significantly better than I was expecting even on the overclock front. Kinda surprising card overall with decent performance to boot backing it up. Its definitely a step down compared to the 1080 but its performance compared to the GTX Titan X is pretty surprising considering it bests it for much less. This is a good generation with a good performance jump. Wonder how custom PCB versions will react on the overclocking front?

I would hardly call 379$ GPU "a steal". Moreover it's a +50$ compared to previous generation x70 GPU, so I would call it a ripoff.

NVIDIA Pascal is introducing a new voltage controller by uPI, the uP 9511P. It's the first time I see this model, so I don't know what features it provides.

Glad is has the same cooling solution, now here's to hoping of blower style reviews of non-FE editions (i really need a blower style for my case).

Well, you are getting performance previously available for ~$600 for under $400. The $50 markup on the previous generation makes it a rip-off?
I mean, I'm not comfortable spending $400 on a video card (I usually spend half of that), but come on...

It can only be called progress when it was done at the previous generations price points. The move from 28nm to 16nm also reduced manufacturing costs for nVidia. A lot of people like to blame R&D for the new prices, but what do they think the previous generations GFX R&D cost? Gummybears and pink sweeties? The real fact is; in the past R&D would have cost even more...

That makes as much sense as rejecting a new Corolla having the performance of last year's Ferrari, because it costs $1,000 more than last year's Corolla.

By definition, rip-off means grossly overpriced. If these were (grossly) overpriced, no one would buy them. Because they're not essential goods.
But hey, telling people what to sell their goods for is a popular ideology today...

Not sure why exactly but you're essentially comparing drag race cars 0-10mph speed. Car was designed to go 300, but hey we just want to focus on why one is getting off the line faster than the other. I sure there's a valid use for that when you're doing it professionally but we're gamers. We buy 600$ cards to play 4k (or at least 1440p). Not 1600x900.

TMSC has to amortize, the cost of the fabs. Thus, higher prices for Nvidia. (Unless Apple paid the full tab for them, so it gets first choice of fabs line output...)
(Assuming TMSC makes the GPU)
