Nvidia GTX 1070 Initial Benchmarks: Beats GTX 980 Ti and Titan X in Every Game Tested
Nvidia officially lifted the GeForce GTX 1070 NDA on Sunday, and with that reviews have just hit the web, revealing the performance and efficiency numbers of the new card. The GTX 1070 is set to be available for purchase in both reference and custom variants on June 10th.
That being said, PC Gamer has just revealed the GTX 1070 initial benchmarks, which show the new Pascal based card exceeding the performance of both GTX 980 Ti and Titan X in every game, at every resolution they tested. Which is incredibly impressive considering the GTX 1070 is priced at just $379 compared against the GTX 980 Ti’s $649 and Titan X’s $999.
Looking at the chart, the 1070 beats the previous gen flagships by about 10 per cent, with an overall 12-14 per cent lead in minimum frame rates. Speaking of the GTX 1080, the flagship card delivers 20-25 per cent more performance than the GTX 1070, while being priced at 55 per cent higher.
With the new Pascal graphics cards on the scene and offering incredible performance and efficiency at very affordable prices, it seems really difficult for AMD’s next gen card to compete with them. AMD will unveil its new 14nm Fin FET-based Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs next week at Computex.
Rumor has it that Polaris 10 will deliver R9 390X/390 performance levels at half the power draw for less than $300. If this is accurate then new Radeon cards would surely give a tough time to the GTX 10-series cards both, in terms of performance and price.
Back to the GTX 1070, the card appears to be a nice upgrade option for GTX 760 and GTX 770 owners at $380 – though it’s not so enticing when it comes to Founders Edition costing $450, but it’s still a great overclocker.
So what do you think? Do you feel your system is too slow and it’s time to upgrade? Let us know in the comments section below.
