NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

The GeForce GTX 1070 is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in June 2016. This GPU is good at gaming with a score of 35% in our PC benchmark.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 8 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 250 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1070 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1506 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1683 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1070 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 150 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
