NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 1070 sales 6 May 2016 at a recommended price of 379 USD. This is a high-end Pascal architecture desktop card based on 16 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8 GB/s are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 256 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 10.5. An additional 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 62.54 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN Xp.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
