    Everyone and their mother support DX12. We are fighting in here for the small details that most people shouldn't even care about. NVIDIA cards that are faster under DX11 might not be as much faster under DX12, but that's it more or less. Just check benchmarks before you buy.

    Simple answer; neither.

    Less simple answer; both.

    I cannot believe ppl saying: I made up my mind. The competition has something new just around the corner that is worth waiting to see it.
    Just saying, take care of your wallets.

    AMD isn't coming out with 1070 competitor anytime soon, though. At best they'll beat it in bang for your buck.

    AMD is not going to release a card any time soon that would be a huge boost in performance From my R9 290 card. The 1070 is the right card for me.

    Is it worth selling both of my 970's and get this card for that money? I can't stand SLI anymore.

    Why not throw a decent 980ti in the mix like an Evga 980ti classified or even the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning you scored @ 17853 in firstrike, would also like to see how Ets2/Ats and Arma3 improve with this as that would probably sway me to change but with scan.co.uk pricing @ £428 its just not worth it imo.

    I did (well, I still have one 970, but will sell it when I get the 1070), so imo, yes. And I will stay away from SLI for a while, that's for sure.

    yeah those official prices and real prices are two different stories...:
    1070 - cheapest non oc 593Eur
    1080 - all the way to 800+ Eur.
    Country in Europe: Lithuania where average salary is ~600 Eur...not to attractive at all.

    Cant understand the mad rush to pick up a new card on release day or so soon after. Advice for anyone who wants a 1070 at a reasonable price: forget the card even exists for a month. Then look at prices. This also gives you time to read reviews on various AIB models to get a sense of which is best.

    being early adopter you get satisfaction of having latest card for longer time. if you wait too long you will enter that annoying time frame where current card is about to be phased out with new card (imagine if you bought gtx970 a month ago, that would suck). also, i don't think prices will change drastically in a month, maybe 10-20 euros after initial demand goes away, but the only way price can really drop is if amd release a competing product.

    I got my 660gtx half way threw it life and I still on using it some people wait generations ( talkin 2-3 and more) between upgrades. it not worth upgrading every generation even if you have the money to burn to do so, same concept for cpu/mobo upgrades it not worth it to do it every new gen

    What is "around the corner" for you?

    September, October...January?

    1070 is here NOW, AMD alternative is "coming" some time in the future.

    HH, great review and looking forward to upgrading from my gtx 770 to this.

    If I could add to your analysis could we get a clock for clock comparison for this and the FE? As the review is taking temperatures from an overclocked card, I don't feel the cooler is well represented. If both cards are running at the same spec, we could better see the cooling capacity.

    Secondly, could we get some numbers on how overclocking the card and power consumption relate? I know this is usually covered for processor reviews but it's something else that's appealing to me and likely others as well. It could reveal how efficient pascal is with performance.

    On a last note, maybe nearing the conclusion a graph of 3dmark scores vs the cost of the cards to show a performance per dollar comparison.

    Regardless to my comments- keep doing an awesome job! Thanks
