The first custom models of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card have been pictured by Videocardz. Along with the pictures, we also have information that NVIDIA will officially lift the NDA on the GeForce GTX 1080 on 30th May. While reviews will be available for users to read the same day, the graphics card will officially hit the retail shelves on 10th June in both reference and non-reference flavors.

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 Reviews Go Live on 30th May – Custom Models Pictured Already

The first custom models that have been pictured are from Inno3D and GALAX. Both cards feature non-reference PCBs and high-end cooling systems. These models will hit the market on 10th June, the same day when Founder Edition will be available for users to purchase. The Inno3D models come in two variants, an iChill X3 and X4 that have factory overclocked specifications. The GALAX GeForce GTX 1080 Gamer adopts an even bigger cooler that incorporates three fans on a powerful custom PCB. You can see these models below:

Some performance numbers of the GeForce GTX 1070 were leaked a while back which can be seen here but for gaming performance, you will have to wait a few days for the reviews to go live.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Specifications – 8 GB / 8 Gbps VRAM, Titan X Levels of Performance At Just $379 US, Factory Clocked Variants More Faster

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 features the GP104 GPU (GP104-200-A1) core which comprises of 1920 CUDA cores. The configuration on the GeForce GTX 1080 comprises of 120 texture mapping units and 64 ROPs. The Pascal FinFET architecture allows significant increase in clock frequency. The GeForce GTX 1070 is clocked at 1506 MHz base anad 1683 MHz boost clock.

The GTX 1070 would feature the same potential of overclocking as the GTX 1080 (or better) since it has more TDP headroom compared to its bigger brother. In the case of 1070, we are looking at a 150W TDP compared to 180W on the GTX 1080.

The chip features 8 GB of GDDR5 memory featured across a 256-bit bus and clocked at 8 GB/s. This leads to a total bandwidth of 256 GB/s. The reason for using GDDR5 memory is to offer a more competitive variant that doesn’t skims down on VRAM while keeping the price relatively low.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 PCB looks very similar to GeForce GTX 1080 but has minor changes.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 features just 150W TDP. Coupled with a very smooth power delivery system to avoid leakage, the chip is one of the most efficient GPU architecture ever designed for gamers. The display out puts for the card include Display Port 1.4 (4K @ 120 Hz), HDMI 2.0b (4K @ 60 Hz) and DL-DVI which means that it is capable to support all next-gen displays with new standards. Power is fed through a single 8-Pin PCIe power connector.

The GeForce GTX 1070 custom models will be starting at a retail price of $379 US while the Founders Edition will be available to purchase at $449 US. We have already listed down several custom models of the GTX 1080 graphics card which you can see here. Most companies will share the same cooling systems with the GeForce GTX 1070 which will be something to look forward to.
