The New Nvidia GTX 1070

Recommended Posts

So guys, what's your thoughts on the new latest and greatest from Nvidia. According to benchmark results, posted by Nvidia on their official site and released at the conference, the GTX 1070 pulls slightly ahead of the Titan X, which is a pretty good feat. considering that it costs $359, will you guys be settling for this or the 1080?

I have the GTX980 and will probably keep using it for a while before I pull the trigger on either the GTX 1070 or 1080. I only had the 980 for about 7 months.

If coming from an older card, like a 660, is it worth the extra money to go to a 1080 or is the 1070 going to be good enough for value/upgrade performance?

I currently have a 970 in my desktop and even though my monitor is 4k I mostly play stuff in 1080p so I'm not sure it's worth me upgrading quite yet. I'll keep up with the chatter and possibly move over to a 1080 and 4k resolution in a year or 2.

I'm planning my new rig and was waiting for the GTX 1070, but pricing in € is just ridiculous. I will wait a few weeks for tests of custom designs and watch if the prices will drop after AMD Polaris is released.

Nonetheless there are any reliable tests of Polaris atm, I'm considering a Crossfire platform of two r9 480/480x or higher. I'm a fan of Nvidia and thought I would never buy AMD, but the additions (also for g-sync monitors compared to f-sync), if there is no benefit in performance, let me think of switching sides and invest the saved euros in an PCIe SSD or whatever... maybe some beers ;-).

The $250 GTX 1060 is almost here. (July 19th) and still way more cheaper, more performance and more efficient than a 980.

But i guess i will go for the 1070 in the next couple of months, to see if theres any significant issues on the first build or not.

Founders Edition is as gorgeous as the Reference card design

The price of 1070 is gone above $400 waiting for the price to go down as the quoted MSRP of $350.

      Well that didn't take long for NVIDIA to respond to Navi. The new 436.02 Game Ready Driver adds the following features:

      Game Ready
      Provides increased performance and the optimal gaming experience for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade, and World War Z
      Gaming Technology
      Adds Beta support for GPU Integer Scaling Adds Beta support for Ultra-Low Latency Mode Adds support for new Freestyle Sharpen Filter Adds support for new G-SYNC compatible monitors Driver release notes: https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/436.02/436.02-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf


      This isn't the old max pre-rendered frames setting, its supposedly a new improved algorithm that matches AMDs anti-lag feature for Navi.

      Next up is support for integer scaling which Intel recently announced but it seems NVIDIA beat everyone to the punch. Unfortunately, this is only for Turing for now:


      Additionally NVIDIA has created a new filter for FreeStyle simply called "Sharpen" which improves performance and visual clarity that is supposed to be on par with RSI but with much broader support and granular adjustment. According to Eurogamer, "They also point out that the amount of sharpening can be adjusted from 0 to 100 per cent, applied on a per-game basis and works with games across all major graphics APIs: DX9, DX11, DX12 and Vulkan".


      Finally, the driver brings with it some game performance improvement, including very popular titles like Apex Legends which sees up to 23% boost at 1080p:



      Overall a pretty solid release, it had some issues earlier when it was released with GeForce Experience being force installed but it should be remedied by now.

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.
