Graphics card leak specialists VideoCardz has published what it claims to be Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 3DMark FireStrike benchmark results. The headline performance of the GTX 1070 in this popular synthetic benchmark is slightly better than previous graphics card generation leaders such as the Nvidia GTX TITAN X, GTX 980 Ti, and AMD Radeon Fury X. Comparisons below are of graphics cards at stock speeds and doesn't include any OC models.

You can see in the above chart that the GeForce GTX 1070 provides
a significant inter-generational performance uplift.

On the subject of overclocking, VideoCardz asserts that users won't be able to OC their GTX 1070 to achieve stock GTX 1080 performance. It says that the Founders Edition card is power limited. In tweaking the card for these tests, it was found that the average GTX 1070 OC frequency was 2060MHz. However the memory frequency was easily overclockable to 9GHz effective speed (2250MHz) to increase bandwidth to 288GB/s (the GTX 1080 offers 320GB/s of bandwidth).

I've truncated the above bar chart; the full version along with 3DMark FireStrike system info screen grabs is available at VideoCardz. As a reminder, the GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition will be launched on 10th June, just over a fortnight from now, priced at $449. A few weeks later AiB partner designs should come in at $379 or lower.

Nice, we have 379USD GPU faster than GTX 980Ti.

AMD, what's your answer?

Design wins for three new consoles, Apple, and a range of chips for high volume markets ;)

PS the 1070 maybe a *little* more than $379 when released in Switzerland ;)
Looks like nvidia have another winner on their hands.

Well that's where AMD belongs. With the consoles.

Also, the new generation is overhyped. The performance gap isn't that big. In actual game performance I've seen the 1080 doing less than my G1 Gaming 980Ti.
Quick pop over to newegg on the costs of the 980ti looks like stock cards have held their $649 release price and lowest AiB is $539
970 was release price $329, with stock cards still around that and the lowest AiB at $289

So if 1070 mrrp is going to be $449 I'm not so sure it'll get down as low as $379 and very doubtful it'll go lower.

And from what I've seen so far AMD's answer it'll be not the top end performance but beat nvidia in the mid range
