NVIDIA has just released the specifications of the GeForce GTX 1070

Specifications of the more wallet-friendly, Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card has been released by NVIDIA. The second graphics card from the new GeForce GTX 10 series will be launched on 10 June this year. Like the more powerful GeForce GTX 1080, the GTX 1070 features the GP104 graphics chip, albeit with 1,920 CUDA cores, down from the 2,560 CUDA core count of the former. The throttled GP104 GPU will feature 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs. Its boost clock speed is capped at a maximum of 1600MHz. The GTX 1070 graphics card will likely feature 8GB of standard GDDR5 video memory, with a 256-bit wide memory bus.
If you are balking at the seemingly anemic features of the GTX 1070, in comparison with the GTX 1080, fret not as NVIDIA has said the GeForce GTX 1070 will offer 6.5 teraflops of compute performance, and will also be faster than the GeForce GTX Titan X.

The card has a thermal envelope of 150W, and draws power from a single, 8-pin Molex power connector. Its video connectivity options feature three DisplayPort 1.4 ports, and one HDMI 2.0b port. The launch price of the GeForce GTX 1070 is set at US$379, and NVIDIA also plans to release the GTX 1070 Founders Edition, which will be priced at US$449. As observed by techPowerUp, the GeForce GTX 1070 is priced just US$50 more the GeForce GTX 970, which had a launch price of US$329. Like the GTX 970, NVIDIA hopes the GTX 1070 will be a choice PC upgrade component for gamers this summer.
