We already knew the specifications of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 but the GTX 1070 was still a bit of a mystery. Now a list of specifications published by TechPowerUp reveals that the GeForce GTX 1070 will likely be quite a bit slower than the GTX 1080 as it has quite a bit fewer CUDA cores than most people were counting on.
With just 15 out of 20 streaming multiprocessors enabled, the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920 CUDA cores, 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This compares to 2560 CUDA cores on the GTX 1080 and another key difference is that the GeForce GTX 1070 has 8GB of GDDR5 memory instead of GDDR5X. The maximum GPU Boost frequency is lower too, it's 1600MHz instead of the 1733MHz found on the reference-based GeForce GTX 1080 cards. The memory clockspeed is still unknown but earlier rumors pointed to 8GHz effective.
Pricing of the GeForce GTX 1070 will be $379, which is $50 more than the launch price of the GeForce GTX 970. The Founders Edition will cost $449, a $70 premium. The launch date is June 10.
