The GeForce GTX 1070 goes on sale today (10/06/16). This is of course NVIDIA’s more economically significant graphics card based on the Pascal architecture and we expect over time for it to become the worlds most popular graphics card (currently the GTX 970). The card starts at $379, with NVIDIA selling the reference-designed GTX 1070 Founders Edition for $449. The card boasts performance levels higher than the previous generation $999 GeForce GTX Titan X.
The GTX 1070 is based on the 16 nm “GP104” silicon and features 1920 CUDA cores, 120 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface that holds 8GB of memory. The core clock is set at 1506 MHz, with a GPU boost up to 1683 MHz, while the memory runs at 8 GHz (GDDR5-effective). This gives you a memory bandwidth of 256 GB/s.
