Nvidia has announced the first GPUs from their next generation of consumer 16nm FinFET GPUs using the Pascal architecture including some specifications and new features along with the prices and release dates. As expected the new GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 GPUs will be clocked higher and at the same time will consume less power and provide users with more power for the next generation of higher resolution displays an VR for examples. The big question for us however is how the new GPUs will be performing for crypto currency mining as compared to the current generation of Maxwell-based GPUs. The increase of performance combined with lower power usage of the new Pascal models as compared to the current Maxwell video cards is a promising start for sure. We’ll have to wait a bit more in order to see, the GeForce GTX 1080 is going to be available starting May 27th with a price of $599 USD and the GeForce GTX 1070 is coming two weeks later on June 10th with a price of $379 USD. Of course for miners with multi-GPU mining rigs the GTX 1070 would probably be the more interesting product…

This GPU card is very expensive for its performance. I am already waiting for the release of the RX 480.
