Geforce GTX 1080 and 1070


Watching the Nvidia announcements today on their Twitch channel was mind-bogglingly boring. Here’s the important parts:

The Geforce GTX 1080 and 1070 were announced. The 1080 will cost $600 and be available in some special Founder’s Edition for $700 when it is released on the 27th. The GTX 1070 is about a million times more reasonably priced at $380 with another goofy Founder’s Edition at $450, but it comes out slightly later on June 10th.

Here’s the other important news for both of these cards: They’re both faster than the fastest cards released in the 9 series. Crazy. Specifications are up on Nvidia’s site.
