Now with the GTX 1080 performance metrics released, NVIDIA has posted the full GTX 1070 specifications over on GeForce.com too.
NVIDIA is getting at 6.5 TFLOPs of compute performance just as previously disclosed. 15 of 20 SMs will be enabled on this part and this represents 1920 CUDA cores. Clockspeeds are also slightly lower than GTX 1080 at 1506MHz for the base clock and 1683MHz for the boost clock. Overall this puts GTX 1070’s rated shader/texture/geometry performance at 27% lower than that of GTX 1080’s.
The GTX 1070 retains GP104’s full 64 ROP backend. Overall memory bandwidth is 20% lower, however, as the GDDR5X in the GTX 1080 has been replaced with standard GDDR5.
Meanwhile GTX 1070 will have a lower power draw with a TDP of 150W.
Like the GTX 1080, the GTX 1070 will be launching in two configurations. The base configuration is starts at $379 and will feature (semi) custom partner designs. The Founders Edition card will be priced at $449 – a $70 premium – and will be available on day one.
