    GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 announced available May 27th

    Announced just now on the Nvidia twitch stream

    GTX 1080
    9 gflops, 8GB GDDR5
    $599 available May 27th
    $699 for Founders Edition (overclockable)

    GTX 1070
    6.5 gflops, 8GB GDDR5
    $379 available June 10th
    $449 Founders Edition




    Sorta tempted but I would like HBM memory instead of GDDR5.... $379 for a 1070 though is hella tempting

    I guess I don't really need it at the resolution of the Vive/my monitors and having a 980Ti, but damn I want it, lol.

    Is this a first for graphic cards having different skus for an overclockable model?

    Is there a reasonable comparo between the 970/980 and 1070? Will it be worth it just to grab the 1070 or stick with the savings and get a steal on the 970 or 980?

    You might be able to find a steal on craigs or reddits hardware swap for a used 970/980 after release but I've never had luck with graphics cards going on clearance in a retail/online store.

    They said the 1070 is gonna also be faster than a Titan X. I'm returning my 970!

    Edit: will places be taking pre orders?

    the 1070 looks like it'll be around 30-50% faster than a 970. Considering its $349 MSRP, it feels like a no brainer to wait for that now. The only issue is the release date (june 10th) and how available it will be at release - the 970 at release was VERY difficult to order for a few months.

    You probably could get a pretty good deal on a used 970 or 980 ti but meh I dunno if I'd want to deal with eBay and shipping and shit like that. Maybe if you can snag a 970 for like $150 but anything over $200 doesn't seem worth it given the hassles you could encounter.

    We also don't know when they are going to release a 1080ti, which will improve the 1080 by 20-40% and be cheaper too, if history is any guide. We also know they are going to release a high end card that uses HBM (much, much faster memory) sometime in the next 12 months.

    So penny pincher spronk, do I return my 970 I just bought and just gamble to try and find a 1070 at msrp?

    definitely return, in a month if you can't find a 1070 you should be able to at least find clearanced out 980 ti's. a 970 is around 5k gflops, a 980ti is around 6k gflops and a 1070 is gonna be around 6.5k gflops - a 1080 will be 9k gflops. GFLOPs isn't a perfect measurement for real life gaming but gives you relative peak performance idea

    Will be interesting to see actual benchmarks. 1080 twice more powerful than 980 in SLI is a bold claim when previous node shrinks did not produce anywhere near to close improvements in performance.

    Either way no upgrading for me until end of the year at the earliest.

    I'm confused because everywhere is listing it as ~9,000 GigaFLOPS. Wouldn't that make it 9 TeraFLOPS or are they all just retarded?

    9000 is bigger than 9, and while a lot of people profess to have knowledge of hardware architecture and throughput, as well as rendering speeds et al, the vast majority are probably just going "hey it's new" and having 9000 sounds more impressive.

    But if the actual numbers are on par with their marketing, that is a -massive- increase in overall gpu power within a generation.

    So if I'm doing the math right a 1080 would be the equivalent of my 550ti * 14. Hmmm... maybe

    So the 1070 is going to be slightly more powerful than the 980TI at half the price? That's pretty fucking impressive. I've been waiting for these to come out to upgrade for VR, that price is really amazing.

    599$ for a 1080 sounds kinda... cheap? Did they give up on the idea of selling shit for 1k if it's the most powerful they have at the moment like the Titan nonsense?

    Sounds like a good year to upgrade my PC.

    You know that there is going to be a 1080 Ti down the road.

    especially with how important having more and more VRAM is getting now, a 970 is definitely a card to get rid of. Or did they solve the >3.5gb VRAM usage stuttering through driver updates?

    I just upgraded from a 680 to a 970 in feb for VR, no ragrets but kinda surprised at how much better the 1070 seems to bench for a cheaper price. guess we'll see more when real world benches hit

    i'm not really fretting too much though, VR games are all dog shit right now and the only game I am playing on PC is Hitman and soon Overwatch. don't really care about Doom and will probably be playing No Man's Sky on PS4 just to zone out while wife watches whatever. Until Star Citizen I can't really think of a PC game that is going to really be that visually demanding - Final Fantasy XV is console exclusive for now, Mirror's Edge kinda sucked in beta, Deus Ex I guess may be the next big one but its SP only anyways

    The new stereoscope rendering stuff they've done in 10xx is awesome but realistically its gonna be a year before that has any impact on real games, I think?

    Interesting that NVIDIA is using a Vulcan game for their demo. Hopefully AMD has their shit together this round because it would just be embarrassing for NVIDIA to run that API better then the company that helped develop it.

    Just think of it as a 3.5gb card. The extra .5 gb is marginally faster than using system ram if you overflow the 3.5gb, but not by much.

    Will wait to see first what AMD has to offer, but i am not holding my breath.

    I like btw how the 1080 requires only a 500w supply, same as the 970.

    I've never seen such a clear case of bang-for-buck as these new cards. Price and performance = win/win

    I really believe that they are intentionally going for a lower price point aiming squarely at the VR adopters and possibility of growing that VR market.

    I used to build a new PC every 2 years like clockwork and yet I've been using the same machine now for 5 years and haven't had a lick of trouble with games, but the machine is completely incapable of VR.

    I feel that this new price point with such a strong performance may be what tips the scales for me in terms of VR adoption and that I am not alone.

    Surely they must have very detailed marketing data that shows how many people there are like me and are eager to get us to fork out some cash for the first time in half a decade.

    So if the 1080 is running Doom at 200fps are the 1080ti and Titan going to run games in 4k at 60fps without sli?

    I would like to see the 1080ti able to run 1440p pegged at 144 hz at Ultra settings. It's possible the 1080 can already do that.

    It isn't BF1 then. Just BF. We didn't know before release that there would be a sequel.

    also kind of a bummer, looks like Founders Editions are NOT overclocked but really just "day 1", ie they will ship first. Nvidia getting that $$. There is no $599 version of the 1080, just other vendors will sell it at that price but the Nvidia one will be $700.

    I kind of want this 1070 but I only play at 1080 and already have a 970. Think I might get it and be done with it anyway.

Glad I held out on replacing it for my new build (using the i7 integrated graphics which is, sadly, still far superior to what I had). For the amount of money I was looking to spend on a card, it really wouldn't be much more to just get the 1070. It'd be nice to have something a little more... this decade... and something I'll likely not have to replace anytime soon since I clearly am not the type of person that is looking to be on the cutting edge.

    I highly agree. Even if you can't get the new hotness those things dropping onto the market should chop at least 100 bucks or more off the price of the card you just purchased.

    You'd have to be stupid to sell a 980 Ti for $350. Once people realize that they aren't going to find a 1080 for less than $700 and that the 1070 probably isn't any faster (if as fast) than the 980 TI and will most likely be slower at higher resolutions they are going to feel pretty dumb they sold their cards.

    Who is reading Forbes for hardware news anyway?

    Gamespot review is pretty straight forward: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/nvi.../1100-6439863/

    Like I said above Forbes is basically just a base URL for a bunch of blogger shit. They have "articles" about almost everything these days from hardware to esports to finance to politics. Pretty soon more people will realize the Forbes name has lost all credibility so linking from a Forbes URL is about the same as linking someone's Tumblr.

    I wouldn't read Forbes if that wasn't a local writer I follow for hardware/VR stuff.

    Anyone know what the specs on a new version of the Titan will be? I got the last one, and love that card. Might be the best card I've purchased

    Looks like the 1080 surpasses the Titan. What are you running your games in? And what type of display? Just curious. I am guessing 4k monitor?

    With that said, from everything I have read, expect the new Titan to have HBM2 memory 16/32 Gb - 1Tb memory / second bandwidth. It will be completely insanely fast.

    4k 120-165hz gsync. The Titan keeps up with all the games now pretty well, but I've had it for abit ,and may refresh. Was just seeing what they may run for.

    I use it for other stuff then gaming tho that's why I like the Titan so much.

    Probably something like their Tesla P100 which has the same Pascal architecture and 16 nm chip process with fast clock speeds, but put together with HBM2 memory. The problem is you can't get the cards (yet) unless you buy one of these:

    The NVIDIA DGX-1 Deep Learning System | NVIDIA

    All you need is a spare $ 129,000. Or you can wait until 2017 when the graphics cards go on sale separately and HBM2 production yields improve (the P100 itself doesn't have all its cores enabled yet, presumably there are still production glitches).

    Word has it Pascal Titan will be September/October, not next year. It will probably be north of $1000 though

    Probably. Last time Titan came 3-4 months after the 900 series launch and the ti was 6 months after the Titan. Nothing more than Nvidia getting the most money possible from all the fools.

    Though I wonder how the ti will compare to the Titan. Currently the 980ti performs more or less the same as a Titan X but thats because of significantly higher clock speeds. 1080ti is already clocked very high, doesnt seem like there is much room to increase clock speed.

    Titan is a little bit different structure then the regular cards. If you do extensive graphic work (Maya) Titan is a better option then getting a full blown Quadro which costs way more.

    Looking at that IGN review on the 1080 that card is pretty sweet.

    The new Titan might take a little longer to appear than the old one because the supply of HBM2 memory is still limited, and AMD have a priority agreement with SK Hynix so NVidia have an even smaller pool of chips (Samsung also make the memory as well but I don't think they are as far along as Hynix). It looks like if NVidia can only make a handful of the cards they are going to stick them in their expensive AI box and sell that, simply because that makes them more profit. Once the memory supply ramps up - and it will, rapidly - then the Titan will appear.

    My source is a third hand reddit thread, so mileage may vary. I have not really looked deeeeeep into it, I just know I am going to buy one once the EVGA model comes out.

    the only editions nvidia is selling is Founders editions, it basically means "made by Nvidia". It does not OC better or come with anything special and there is no other version nvidia will sell. The 1080s from other vendors are expected to be $100 cheaper for ?? reasons ??

    its basically a pre order day 1 edition for people willing to pay extra

    The founder edition is nothing but a cash grab to nail early adopters. It's a fucking stupid idea and Nvidia should be punished for it but I doubt it'll happen unless AMD comes out swinging. It looks like there is a lot of headroom on 16nm/14nm in terms of clock speed so there is a small chance that AMD could surprise us and come out with something that better than a 390X and disrupt this stupidity but I'm not holding my breath.

    Didnt they JUST come out with the 390x? , Polaris I know has an indeterminate delay on it, But the price points look really good. I am usually an AMD guy, but the 1080/1070 may bee too good for me to pass up. Plus Developers seem to be intentionally Hamstringing AMD GPUs nowdays with the NVIDIA Gameworks bullshit people put in.

    I doubt it. While nVidia gets the enthusiast graphics card market, AMD is killing it in the OEM laptop space and console market. Granted, neither of those has high margins but they do keep the company afloat. Rumour has it Polaris managed to snag AMD the next gen Macbook contract.

    Not that it's hard to win contracts over nVidia. A lot of companies hate nVidia due to the shit they pull.

    Yeah, I'm usually with AMD, the price per performance under a certain threshold, especially for 1080p gaming is better. I'm using a 280X now. But will probably go to a 1070 as the 'final' upgrade for this computer (Next time it is going to get one, it's just going to be rebuilt.)

    If you can wait 1-3 months then a 1070 might be the best deal, $379 for an OEM 1070 would give you a 50%+ boost over a 970 for the price you'd pay for a new 970 right now

    I just bought an evga 970. Apparently there is a step up program where you can upgrade to a new graphics card just paying the difference as long as it is within 90 days.

    NCIX has already jacked up the the price! All the ones at 909 are already floating around 940-950 :/ Luckily the VR headset isn't hitting my direction anytime soon and I can maybe skip this founders garbage.

    Never buy reference design anyway.

    Wait for custom models with different coolers from the big constructors (Gigabyte, Asus...). They usually are way better, clocked higher, and with lesser temp.

    Not 100 dollars good.

    The pricing/performance for the third party vendors has been leaking today anyway. It looks like you'll be able to get something factory overclocked for less than $699 in two weeks.

    Considering doing a complete rebuild and upgrading 18 months from now. Comparing my current card's specs to this just make me laugh at how much has improved architecture-wise. Just looking at the drop in power draw (while demolishing the older models) amazes me.

    If only Windows itself had improved as much instead of paying more for less.

    Not sure if this is a result of demands of the mobile market (along with being tied to reduced heat) but I'll take it either way

    Paying for codecs that came with win7 out of box with my blu ray drive in win 8 and 10 upgrades rustles me a bit. Doubly so with Office going the way of Adobe suit.

    seems like a good time to upgrade my 770gtx, especially if these power requirements are for real, may actually work in my SFF pc. I'm pretty retarded with this stuff in general - my OS is 32 bit( vista) - hasnt been an issue with my current card, but any reason this could effect the 1070/1080? Also side note, is it possible to upgrade to 64 bit os pretty easily/safely filewise?
