NVIDIA Brings Us the Specifications for the GeForce GTX 1070

Category: Video Cards
Posted: 09:38AM

NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1080 video card is nearly here, with reviews pouring in to show off what this Pascal-powered beast can do. However, it was not the only card NVIDIA unveiled at its special event, as the GeForce GTX 1070 was formally introduced. The GTX 1070 did not have many of its specifications announced at the time, but now we have that information. It is a little bit slimmed down from the GTX 1080, yet that shouldn't hamper its performance much, especially with NVIDIA saying it can outperform the TITAN X. So, what does the GTX 1070 have? Well, for starters it has the same GP104 core as the 1080, but with 1920 CUDA cores. Its core clock speed is 1506MHz, with a boost clock speed of 1683MHz. It has 8GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps on a 256-bit bus, delivering 256GB/s of bandwidth.

The Founders Edition card features the same cooler as the GTX 1080, which should help keep things cool when you're overclocking to the next level. Power to the GTX 1070 is delivered with just a single 8-pin connector, much like the GTX 1080, with the card taking just 150W of power. That 8-pin connector should help out nicely when overclocked, especially since it delivers more power than the card itself needs. Other items of note are the DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and Dual Link DVI display connections, SLI support, VR Ready, Multi-Projection, DirectX 12 support, and the full NVIDIA GeForce ecosystem.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 should be one fantastic performer when it arrives on June 10 for $379. The Founders Edition cards come in at $449 if you want to go the reference router and get that snazzy new vapor chamber cooler.
