 Let's have a look at the newly announced specifications for the GTX 1070. 

Let's have a look at the newly announced specifications for the GTX 1070, which show that the GTX 1070 will have only 1920 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR5 memory. 

This means that not only will the GTX 1070 have fewer CUDA cores than the GTX 1080, it will run at lower clock speeds and also use slower GDDR5 memory, making this GPU a downgrade in pretty much every respect. That being said this GPU will have a greater level of compute performance than that GTX 980Ti, making this GPU an attractive option for it's MSRP of $379 (or $449 for the founders edition).

The GTX 1070 will be based on the same GPU core as the GTX 1080, giving it a lot of similar specifications. This GPU will be running less CUDA cores and be running at lower GPU clocks, allowing this GPU to have a lower TDP of 150W. This means that the GTX 1070 will have a lower TDP than Nvidia's GTX 980.

Right now the GTX 1070 is a long way from release, with availability starting for this GPU on June 10th at the earliest and even then only at the higher "Founders edition" pricepoint.

I am a little sad to see it is only using GDDR5 and not the 5x. I'm sure it will still be a great midrange card though. I feel like the price to performance ratio for 1080p and maybe even 1440p will be great though. I just don't know if I will be able to resist the 1080...Quote

It's much cheaper. Hence the non 5x.
After reading 1080 benches and stuff, it's really not that impressive. In a lot of cases not faster than 980 SLI(4k). 1070 looks like it will be the better buy. Just like last timeQuote

If nVidia follow the same pattern this will certainly be the case. The x80 cards are always left in limbo between the enthusiast level x80 Ti's and the price/performance x70's. I'm waiting for the Ti and AMD Vega before upgrading.Quote
