    Me thinks I am going to get decent performance upgrade on my 560 with this card :D

    Well i was going to go for the 1080 but now that i have seen the performance of this card vs price, I dont think i will be going for the 1080 anymore, especially considering I only play at 1080p.

    Great review HH. Love your work.

    Here is also one review with 980Ti Lighting boost 1430mhz as comparison, no driver is going to change that unless you also OC that 1070 to 2ghz to catch up

    I would rather like to see nv 1080Ti, AMD vega10 now as a option not these mainstream GP104 and Polaris10 chips :nerd:

    this would be really nice upgrade from 660gtx, not sure I would want to pay the asking price though, Wonder what the 1060gtx will do, but I Thinking it most likely isnt gonna have GDDR5X or HBM2 memory

    384bit vs 256bit

    25% vs 13% oc

    2000mhz vs 2150mhz on memory, the gtx 980ti is running at the stock memory clocks of the gtx 970 with higher bit interface.

    about 900 more cuda cores, along with more mature drivers.

    I would wait for the custom cards and see, if the better power delivery and higher oc make a difference, otherwise, the 980ti looks like the better card this time around.

    Looks like a brilliant card. I was going to buy this, but I expected it to cost £350 and be slightly slower than a 1500mhz 980ti. Even after overclocking the 1070. So a bought a 980ti. Saved myself £50 and haven't lost any performance.

    That being said, at £350, this is a great card. Nvidia could easily charge more, seeing as it consistently beats AMD's top end.

    This will sell loads. No doubt. Great review btw.

    Well I'm convinced, soon as an EVGA ACX version comes out I'm getting it.

    Two of these would be a nice upgrade for the 670's. Waiting to see how Polaris looks.

    Nice review boss. Sounds like the card that I am looking for. Looks like my PSU should be able to handle the card overclocked. I hope that this card can last me a good while to come.

    Well can't really compare Maxwell and pascal simply because both have different architectures in their own right, despite the cuda cores, its going to take at least 6+ months for pascal drivers to mature, hopefully when the big pascal, aka HBM2 Version, the drivers will be somewhat good to go.

    The performance of theses cards are just going to get better overtime so its gonna take some time before it really shines, anyways, nice review, thanks.

    Hmm, it's super fast and slick for 1440p and lower. It seems to bog down at 4k though (compared to the 1080). Now I really want to see the release date and pricing of the AIB 1080s. :nerd:

    The Zotac 1080 amp extreme looks very good, Can't wait to see reviews for both zotac and gigabyte version of both 1070 and the 1080.

    The zotac looks very promising, even though I have never owned a zotac product before, looks very promising as it has an additional pci-e power connector for extra power delivery, This is going to be one awesome card.

    But the reference maxwell cards did not clock significantly lower than the average high-end aib model

    most of the reference 980tis (with the damn heatblower) oc'd to around ~1450-1480 in reviews, 980/970 slightly higher

    Top end cards like msi lightning, gigabyte g1,xtreme, evga classified etc on air ~1500 for 980ti avg (top air around 1570) 980/970 around 1550

    Yeah agree, the only real difference was they were cooler.

    By 1070/1080 it will also help by stabler boost OC, but I think 2.1-2.2Ghz boost is pretty much the limit with GP104 chip.


    Full GP102 chip might even have hard time breaking 2GHz boost barrier.

    The Zotac PGF 1080 series will have even higher factory oc than the extreme version along with a 16+2 phase PWM design.

    The 1070 is a really great card, almost the same as running a 980ti. Perfect for 1440p gaming. These will sell like hotcakes.
