    On the firestrike score they show, it just barely beats the 980 Ti. Hopefully that's just at stock clocks and it boosts like crazy.

    People haven't been that impressed. I'm curious how the Ti version will perform.

    Today's supposed to be Nvidia's big announcement day.
    So far I have seen one place that says they will be carrying an event at 6PM PST.

    As was posted under MSI's Twitter feed I suspect it's MSI's branded cards. Of course the gaming edition card always seems to be a few months behind the first releases.

    Maybe I was left out on some of the previous expectations (I haven't been following closely) - but doesn't this make sense? Currently, the 980ti is recognized as a very, very good card (rivaling titans etc).

    The 1080 comes in performing about 3-10% better in (using the best figure reported as the 980ti figures) 3D Mark and Firestrike.

    The 980ti is a $650 card, the 1080 will probably be, what, $450-$500, and the 1070 will probably be ~$400? So you're getting 980ti-like performance for $400 around launch? Yes please!

    Speculation that a GTX 1070 can perform as good or better than a 980Ti. I posted the link a few days ago.

    Looks like the official announcement tonight detailed the specs, and the 1080 boosts higher than the Firestrike benchmark showed - 2.1ghz rather than 1.8ghz. They specifically said it's more powerful that a pair of 980s in SLI, so early info probably wasn't reliable.

    1080 is $600 - out the last week of May. 1070 will be $379 and at punching weight with the Titan X. Can't wait for Guru3d benchmarks.

    Right then, time for a proper news post about it. Nvidia hours ago announced the GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080. Both cards are obviously Pascal architecture based and made on a 16nm FinFet design. The rumors have been true including a shader count of 2560 shader processors for the 1080 and pretty wicked clock frequencies whilst sticking to a 180 W TDP only.

    The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is based on the GP104-gpu which has a staggering 7.2 Billion transistors. The 108o is fitted with Micron's new gddr5x-memoro, 8GB of it. The base clock frequency is 2500MHz on a 256-bit wide memory bus offering 320GB/s. The card has a base-clock of 1607MHz with a boost boost clock of 1733MHz, and that's just the reference design. Nvidia claims that overclocks up-to 2GHz are possible. The GTX 1080 has a 180 watt TDP.

    The GeForce GTX 1070 also has a GP104-gpu based on Pascal-architecture but is the cheaper model. It'll be fitted with 8GB gddr5-memory, yes regular GDDR5 memory. Nvidia did not yet share information on the number of shader processors and further specs on the 1070. however it would offer 6.5 tflops of performance where the 1080 will offer 9 tflops of single precision performance.

    Benchmarks have not been shown, but the GTX 1080 in for example VR was faster compared to a Titan X and even faster than two GTX 980-cards. You may expect with games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3 that the GTX 1080 will be roughly 70 procent faster compared to is a possibility. a regular GTX 980, based on a slide Nvidia showed. That would make it even faster than a GTX 980 Ti now that I think of it.

    The GeForce GTX 1080 is equipped with three displayport connectors 1.2 but they also offer support for DP 1.3- and 1.4 standards. So you could use 4k-monitor with refreshrates up-to 120Hz, even 7680x4320 pixels at 60Hz is possible . The card also has a HDMI 2.0b connector supporting 4K / 60 Hz. The cards can be placed in SLI, Nvidia developed a new SLI HB-bridge (high bandwidth) that offers twice the bandwidth compared to the regular SLI bridges you guys already know.

    The GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB GDDR5X pricing is set at 599 USD, there will be a founders (special binned and more overclockable) edition as well for 699. The card will be available starting May 27th. The GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of GDDR5 memory as well will be released in a founders edition. The basis model will cost 379 USD and the founders edition is going to cost 449 USD. The GeForce GTX 1070 will reach the market a bit later at June 10th, that might be due to custom AIB partner designs and releases released and showed off right after Computex.

    Weird that they're using different memory on the 1070. Guess they are trying to avoid another 970 VRAM scandal?

    Sucks that the 1070 is GDDR5...but those prices look pretty good for a new launch.

    So it looks like we'll get info on the 490/490x around June or July?

    Omg.

    This is a total "Shut up and take my money" moment. The decision now, for me, is 1070 vs 1080 vs 1070 SLI. I mean.... Titan for $379? Hell yes. Maybe I should think about the 1080 (because that's a badass number) and because I'm running triple monitor. I'll have to finally buy Witcher 3 and see how high I can jack up the specs on 5760 x 1080p.

    TwoNun - it's upgrade time.

    Looking at 980 SLI benchmarks, if the 1080 can beat that across the board by even %5, it would make a lot of sense to sell my 970s for $200 each, throw in the extra $200, and get back to a single card setup with more than double my current VRAM.
