NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Announced For $379 US – Faster Than Titan X With 8 GB GDDR5 Memory, Launches on 10th June. When did the gtx 1070 come out

The GPU cooler was also seen as a symbol of NVIDIA GeForce GTX products, but NVIDIA has been using the same GPU cooler for years. Cards based on Kepler GPUs and even the newest Titan X used a slightly modified version.

NVIDIA also announced its most competitive graphics card to date, the GeForce GTX 1070. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 offers higher performance than the GeForce GTX Titan X at just $ 379, which is really crazy. The graphics card combines all the features of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture to give users the best gaming and virtual reality experience, making it the most powerful and craziest graphics card made for gamers.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 is set to be one of the most competitive graphics cards to date!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Crushes The Titan X at $379 US – Insane Performance, Insane Specs and Insane Amounts of Efficiency

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

The GeForce GTX 1070 has crazy specs for just $ 379.

While the bigger brother, the GeForce GTX 1080 is a beast in its own right, the GeForce GTX 1070 is just crazy. From specs to price, NVIDIA has shown its willingness to take the success they’ve achieved with the GTX 970 to the next step, and have just announced a product that will lead them to success. The GTX 1070 looks like one of the most competitive graphics cards announced by NVIDIA to date, so let’s dive into the specs.

Founding release of the 1080 at $ 699, it means Nvidia has a monopoly for a month and will most likely make money from selling reference cards for the first time since the GTX 680. Surprisingly, Nvidia often loses money on reference cards.

Gaming Benchmarks

Starting with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we can see that in 1080p the GTX 1070 is about 15% faster than the RX 580 and about 10% faster at 1440p. This is a great result for an aging GeForce GPU, as it means it was good at around 60fps at 1080p at medium quality settings, then 70fps at low quality.

It also means you can get a decent 1440p experience with low quality settings, which isn’t amazing, but it’s a nice step over the Radeon RX 580 and at very competitive aftermarket prices. The GeForce GPU is a much better buy.

Then we have Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and here the GTX 1070 was incredibly fast, leaving the RX 580 16% behind at 1080p and 1440p at medium and high quality settings.

For those looking for over 200 frames per second, a medium quality setting at 1080p will work, and for slightly more casual players at 120+ you can get away with it even at 1440p.

The biomutant was a bit difficult to run on the RX 580, especially with the high quality settings. This was a much smaller problem with the GTX 1070, which was 35 to 45% faster at 1080p and then roughly 40-50% faster at 1440p.

This meant that at 1080p it was possible to achieve over 80 frames per second even at the high quality setting, while comparable performance was possible at 1440p at low. So overall excellent performance, especially for 1080p gamers.

The GTX 1070 proves once again that it is still great at playing the latest games, this time hitting Outriders over 60fps using high-quality settings. Even at 1440p, performance was good, 66fps at mid-level was a great experience, and even 53fps at high-quality settings wasn’t bad, it was also an impressive 61% increase in performance over the RX 580.

The GTX 1070 was also in a completely different class when tested with Horizon Zero Dawn. We expect a performance increase of ~ 35%, which means well over 60fps at 1080p using even a favor quality setting, then over 60fps at 1440p using the original quality setting. It’s a solid result and loads of performance with reasonable quality settings for gamers to enjoy the title.

We’re expecting around 25-30% higher performance in Shadow of the Tomb Raider on the GTX 1070, allowing you to get well over 60fps at 1080p with decent quality settings like the medium setting, which still looks very good.

Then at 1440p the 1070 drops below 60fps using a medium preset and therefore those looking for more frames will need a low or lowest setting.

We’ve already seen that the Doom Eternal performs exceptionally well on the RX 580, and even on the older R9 390. So it’s no surprise that the GTX 1070 performs pretty well, delivering over 100 FPS even at 1440p at nightmarish settings.

Average Performance

GeForce GTX 1070 offers an average of about 27% higher performance than the Radeon RX 580 in both tested resolutions at different quality settings. This means that in 1080p games, the GTX 1070 is still mostly capable of delivering 60fps or more, with a few exceptions.

Those who play 1440p will be able to hit 60fps or more on medium quality settings. For what is now an older mid-range product, it’s a great result.

The system is equipped with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory in a 256-bit bus and clocked at 8 GB / s. This leads to a total bandwidth of 256 GB / s. The reason for using GDDR5 is to offer a more competitive variant that doesn’t limit VRAM at a relatively low price.

GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 hardware specs

While it’s surprising that Nvidia has raised the price of its flagship graphics cards – especially given AMD’s bold claims that its Polaris architecture will deliver VR-ready performance in the “main” price range – the company says both cards are significantly faster than its current flagships , GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti, which sell for $ 1,000 (£ 800) and $ 650 (£ 550) respectively. For the GTX 1080, Nvidia claims to be twice as fast as the Titan X in some VR applications and three times more power efficient – it even claims to be faster than setting up with two SLI 980s. (But interestingly, the GTX 1080 and 1070 can run only in bi-directional SLI; three-way and four-way SLI are not available.)

The performance increase is due to the combination of the new GPU (Pascal) microarchitecture with the more economical TSMC 16nm FinFET manufacturing process and significantly higher clock frequencies: 1607 MHz (1733 MHz gain) for GTX 1080 vs. 1000 MHz (1050 MHz gain) for Titan X.

The GTX 1080 also uses the faster Micron GDDR5X memory. With a clock speed of 10,000 MHz and a bus width of 256 bits, a memory bandwidth of 320 GB / s is available. Meanwhile, the GTX 1070 will use standard GDDR5 memory.

The GPU GP104, which controls both the GTX 1080 and 1070, shares many features with its Maxwell-based predecessor. The key difference is that each graphics processing cluster (GPC) now has 10 stream multiprocessors (SMs) instead of eight. Each SM includes 128 CUDA cores, 48 ​​KB of L1 cache, and eight texture units. Taken together, this means the GTX 1080 has 2,560 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs, and 160 texture units.

Updated, October 18: Nvidia has just unveiled the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, both priced very aggressively and released on October 25.

Nvidia has confirmed that the GTX 1080 will raise the performance of around 9 TFLOPS (possibly a single precision floating point) from a chip built around 7.2 billion transistors. By comparison, the Titan X pushes around 7 TFLOPS out of its 8 billion transistors. The GTX 1070 is said to achieve 6.5 TFLOPS. The full technical specification for the GTX 1080 can be found in our card review.

Nvidia has finally updated its standard radiator design, which debuted alongside the GTX Titan in 2013. As the leaks suggested, it is a metal grille with a strikingly angular design with a single cooling fan in the blower design at the rear. In addition to the new cooler, Nvidia says it has also improved power delivery (120mV between peaks), allowing for more stable overclocking.

In terms of temperature and despite the higher clock speeds, the GTX 1080 remains quite cool. At factory clock speeds and fan speeds, our sample (in the case) reached 76 degrees Fahrenheit, hitting a target temperature of 84 degrees with the clock overclocked.

The new cooler will only be available on Founders Edition cards purchased directly from Nvidia.com.

But wait, there’s more!

In addition to the new hardware, Nvidia has unveiled three new software features, starting with Ansel, the advanced in-game screenshot tool. Unlike typical screenshot tools, Ansel connects directly to the game engine – as the developer allows – allowing users to freely navigate a specific scene, rotate the image, crop it, and apply filters. Moreover, since the tool connects directly to the framebuffer, users can take screenshots at resolutions higher than their monitor, down to 61,000 pixels in Photoshop. There’s even a 360-degree screenshot mode for viewing on VR headsets such as the HTC Vive or via the Nvidia Android app and Google Cardboard.The games supporting Ansel at launch are The Division, The Witcher 3, and No Man’s Sky.

Nvidia also had two virtual reality enhancements: Nvidia VR Works Audio and the wonderfully talkative “Simultaneous Multi-Projection”. The first is effective ray tracing for sound, allowing developers to physically model the sound as it bounces off various surfaces, allowing for realistic reverberation among other effects. To showcase VR Works Audio, Nvidia is releasing a free mini-game collection called The Nvidia VR Funhouse for HTC Vive.

In our benchmark kit, the GTX 1070 Ti outperformed the GTX 1070 by 16% at standard clock speeds. This performance is priced 13% higher than the reference GTX 1070 at MSRP. No surprises.

Premium Thermal Compound

Every detail counts in creating the best thermal design, which is why TWIN FROZR VI uses the highest quality thermally conductive compound to ensure it outlives the competition.


The Future of Gaming

The smoothest, fastest and most thrilling gameplay experience thanks to the elimination of screen tearing, iris, and input lag.

Ultra High Definition (UHD) provides four times the resolution of 1080p, delivering much sharper and clearer images with fine detail when gaming.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) enriches the gaming world with higher contrast and brighter colors than ever before.

The memory has been diced and diced primarily in the GTX 1070 Ti, abandoning the GDDR5X memory found in high-end Nvidia cards – possibly due to a shortage – in favor of GDDR5 memory. As a result, the memory bandwidth dropped from 320 GB / s in the GTX 1080 to 256 GB / s in the GTX 1070 Ti.

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti benchmarks

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti performance

The graphics performance out of the box is exactly what you would expect from a graphics card found between two well-established siblings. The card ranks in the middle of the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, both in terms of price and performance. Without manual overclocking, the card works closer to the first than the second.

In our benchmark kit, the GTX 1070 Ti outperformed the GTX 1070 by 16% at standard clock speeds. This performance is priced 13% higher than the reference GTX 1070 at MSRP. No surprises.

For a 1440p target audience, you probably won’t hurt too much by giving up the GTX 1070 Ti and opting for the cheaper GTX 1070, as both offer more than a playable frame rate at 1440p, averaging above 60 FPS.

Although the GTX 1070 Ti is significantly cheaper than both the few remaining GTX 1080s in the channel and the newer RTX 2070 that will effectively replace it. In terms of gaming performance, it’s not far from the GTX 1080, but it does mean the difference between it and Turing’s current lowest card is relatively large.

Where the GTX 1070 Ti really shines is the overclocking headroom where we managed to push +225MHz to the GP104 core clock. While this does seem quite high, it’s largely due to fairly low reference clocks out of the box with no factory tweaks. We also achieved a memory shift of 455MHz to 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The temperature limit has been increased to 92C and the power limit to 120% for a slightly more overclocking margin.

With this overclocking on our test bench, the performance is much more convincing. It is a pity that this performance is blocked by a process that many GTX 1070 Ti owners are unlikely to bother with, resulting in rather poor performance.

The performance of our overclocked card increased by an average of 32% over the reference GTX 1070, sharply shifting the price per frame in favor of the GTX 1070 Ti. The Assassin King didn’t quite manage to perform regicide on our test bench, even at the highest overclocks we could get without instability, recording an average frame rate 6% worse than the GTX 1080 at reference clocks.

Bottlenecks with limited memory bandwidth were expected to raise their ugly head in benchmarks that require large texture files and the like. As our benchmarks show, this apparently affected the minimum frames per second in Shadow of War at 4K and 1440p. The drop to 8Gbps GDDR5 from 10Gbps GDDR5X is likely the cause of a significant drop in performance compared to the GTX 1080.

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti verdict

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti verdict

The GTX 1070 Ti is a relatively modest upgrade over the GTX 1070, and out of the box performance doesn’t particularly change the game. It slips silently into the Pascal stack that we’ve enjoyed playing for almost two years, and it works as expected. Although a little extra overclocking power is a long way. Despite its launch close to Halloween, this is not the GTX 1080 consuming zombie you’ve been hoping for.

The potential of the GTX 1070 Ti is almost entirely in overclocking. This may seem strange given the initial ban on overclocking the factory Nvidia. This means that if overclocking isn’t part of your wheelhouse, you can look elsewhere, although its performance is now more relevant with a dwindling number of GTX 1080 cards available at decent prices.

With our reference Nvidia card, we weren’t able to completely downgrade the GTX 1080’s performance, although in most benchmarks it was within 6% of the more expensive card. With solid overclocking, the GTX 1070 Ti can fill the gap to the GTX 1080, but never overclock it.

Due to limited memory bandwidth, it is likely to age faster than the GTX 1080 or more advanced graphics chips, and for a card that arrives so late in the game, it’s not the best position.

When this card was first announced, we pondered its purpose, considering it a product of boredom among GeForce engineers on the team. Rumors were circulating about the potential GTX 1080 cannibalization, and Nvidia was limiting overclocking the card to prevent this from happening, this card seemed to have the potential to seriously disrupt the performance of the cards around it.

Nvidia really did intend to release the last shocking hay machine as the last attraction for Pascal. However, at the time of launch, it seemed to be back in the nest of design boredom, only filling a gap that the AMD RX Vega could once have fought fiercely. However, this alone never happened as AMD struggled for performance with its latest architecture.

Unfortunately, the GTX 1070 Ti is not a late game salute to eternal glory, it is a great card, similar to Pascal’s phenomenal sibling that came before. But that only matters now with more GTX 1080 coming in. And with the arrival of the Turing generation mainstream GPUs in the new year, it’s getting harder and harder to recommend.

Today, the 5700 XT typically sells in the aftermarket for $ 700-800, so in terms of cost per frame it is significantly inferior to the GTX 1070 we just showed. Not to mention that overall it’s just less achievable.

I’ll get the GTX 1070 and
I’ll take a GTX 1070 and a game on my 1080p 21.5 monitor and show a video of doing this so I can piss people off how not to play games on a pesky graphics card :-p

Shit, that’s a big@!
Shit, that’s a big@!

Thank you.
Thank you.

Glad to finally see 8 GB of VRAM
Glad to finally see 8GB of VRAM on a mid-range card from Nvidia.
AMD Polaris for itself is better to go to 11 😉

Oh, it goes to 11.
Oh, it goes to 11.

AMD didn’t have 8 GB turned on
AMD also did not have 8GB on mid-tier cards, 390 cards aren’t mid-tier despite people wanting to argue they do.

GTX600 = GTX1000 = Cheat
GTX600 = GTX1000 = Cheat

I do not understand what it is
I don’t understand what this comment is trying to say.

I don’t know about the GTX600
I don’t know about the gtx600 scam, but in theory this should bring prices down on the 900 series significantly.
i just check 4k Digital Foudry benchmarks for 908ti vs titanx vs 980sli and the 1080 looks like the more energy efficient 980ti to me. Not any more.
in the 980ti benchmark the OC version is equal to or faster than the titanx, the 980sli won most games, so if we put the 980sli and 980ti OC on this slide it will show a slight performance boost.

Just like the NDA was abolished earlier
So will the NDA be lifted before May 27?

It lifts the NDA contracts in May
Lifting of the NDA on May 17

Something is wrong here
Something doesn’t add up here for 1080. Micron still reports on its website that DDR5X is still not in mass production, so how can NVidia get enough chips? Sounds like very limited availability for 1080 at first.
I think they could enter into some kind of exclusivity agreement? Who knows… I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

However, both the 1070 and 1080 look like great cards. Kudos to Nvidia.

Putting on paper is nothing new to
The launch of paper is not new to this type of luxury product…

Looks like it might be important
It looks like this could be the main reason we have an expensive Founders release and no AIB until mid-June at the earliest.

Founding release of the 1080 at $ 699, it means Nvidia has a monopoly for a month and will most likely make money from selling reference cards for the first time since the GTX 680. Surprisingly, Nvidia often loses money on reference cards.

This monopoly gave Nvidia extra time to purchase GDDR5X to meet AIB needs, while the price alone slows down sales, allowing Nvidia to secure an adequate supply of GDDR5X for 1080 Founders. Of course, this is not the only factor influencing the price, the founders’ MRSP is also clearly high at $ 699 to politically reassure AIB partners, allowing Nvidia to monopoly while minimizing any relationship or financial harm to AIB. Imagine how AIB’s partners would react if they lost millions in revenue directly due to Nvidia’s decision to maximize sales in the first month and use the monopoly to offer the GTX 1080 at normal lower reference card prices?

Regardless, I have a funny feeling that the Founders price of both 1080 and 1070 will cause problems and likely have the opposite effect – rightly or not, understandably Nvidia feels entitled to create Founders cards due to the 3500 billion cost of developing a new architecture , new 16nm process, new cards and new firmware – since Founders cards are still nothing more than reference cards, how does Nvidia expect AIB partners to bridge the $ 699 price gap suggested by the Founders and the lower MSRP of $ 599? The only way to fill this price range is for AIB to use cheaper components that do not meet reference card standards – however we all know that most custom cards improve the reference specs?

There aren’t a ton of markups for this kind of overclocking. Some of the non-standard OC cards will have a much higher OC burden. I think we could see the N2 OC getting closer to 3 GHz which would be crazy.

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti: Price, performance, features compared

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti at a glance

How powerful is the GTX 1070 Ti? The GTX 1070 Ti is capable of great performance in the latest games at 1080p and above.
When did the GTX 1070 Ti come out? Nvidia introduced the GTX 1070 Ti to the market on November 2, 2017.
How Much is the GTX 1070 Ti? The average GTX 1070 Ti costs anywhere from $ 700 to $ 800.

What is the GTX 1070 Ti?

The GTX 1070 Ti is an upgraded version of the Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card. Released more than a year after the GTX 10 series, it serves as a bridge between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 in terms of both price and performance.

As the GTX 1070 is already more than capable of supporting modern 1080p games and the GTX 1080 is better suited to 4K gaming with high refresh rates, this puts the GTX 1070 Ti right at the forefront of 1440p. At this resolution, it delivers a smooth 60fps more consistently than the GTX 1070 without charging a price for the GTX 1080 for the privilege.

Like its predecessor, the GTX 1070 Ti includes 8GB of GDDR5 RAM running on a 256-bit memory bus at 8Gb / s. The differences are in the clock speed: the base graphics card runs at 1607 MHz compared to the 1506 MHz GTX 1070. However, both cards offer the same boost clock speed of 1683 MHz.

This extra hum is not free. While the GTX 1070 only draws 150 watts of power, the GTX 1070 Ti chews 180 watts. The difference is even greater when we compare the brand-name variants of the GTX 1070 Ti, equipped with overclocked GPUs and more powerful cooling solutions.

Meanwhile, physically, the GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti are virtually identical. Both use the standard PCIe 3.0 interface and require at least one 8-pin power connector. Size is still an important factor as the GTX 1070 Ti covers the width of the two slots on the motherboard.

What features does the GTX 1070 Ti support?

Nvidia’s greatest strength to the GTX 10 series is the Pascal GPU architecture at the heart of every card. This technology brings with it a number of functions at both the software and hardware levels. The most important of them are:

  • HDCP 2.2
  • OpenGL 4.5
  • Display port 1.4
  • HMDI 2.0b
  • DL-DVI
  • Simultaneous multi-projection
  • Triple buffering at driver level

How powerful is the GTX 1070 Ti?

As one of the best cards in the GTX 10 series, the GTX 1070 Ti offers a ton of power in the gaming department. There is usually no problem pushing the latest games to the maximum graphics settings at 1080p while maintaining a smooth 60fps, which is a feat that persists even after boosting the resolution to 1440p. While the regular GTX 1070 often scores the same performance benchmarks, the GTX 1070 Ti does so with more consistency and stability. In practice, this usually means a 10% to 20% frame rate increase compared to the GTX 1070.

Virtual reality is another strong point of the GTX 1070 Ti. It easily exceeds the requirements of both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift goggles, ensuring it can handle most VR games with ease.

If you’re into 4K gaming, the GTX 1070 Ti fares slightly better than the GTX 1070. Performance is still in the 30-60fps range, depending on the specific game and how much graphics you tweak, but you’ll be able to tweak a few extra frames per second thanks to the higher clock speed of the GTX 1070 Ti.
