In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition.

The GTX 1070 has a 602 MHz higher core clock speed but 72 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 780. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1070 manages to provide 1.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1070 has a 602 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 780. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 54.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1070 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 780, and so the GTX 1070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 780.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1070 has 5120 MB more video memory than the GTX 780, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 780 has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1070, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 780 is noticeably better than the GTX 1070.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4590 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 is 2380. The GTX 1070 having 2210 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 780.

The GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 780. This means that the GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 780.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 780. The GTX 780 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GTX 1070. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 780 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GTX 1070 Windforce OC is a Special Edition GTX 1070 high end graphics card by Gigabyte based on the Nvidia Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P104-200-A1, which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 15 SM activated, offering 1920 shader processing units, 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Gigabyte Windforce OC central unit runs at 1582MHz and goes up to 1771MHz, under the Boost Mode, higher than the reference card.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The Windforce OC GTX 1070 by gigabyte has a top tier performance rating. It can meet 2016 AAA system requirements comfortably, gaming at high graphics settings across all games. This GPU will deliver strong frame rates at 1080p on any game at high graphics levels.

System Suggestions
This graphics card benchmark performance is best suited to resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 980MHz while its boost clock is now of 1033MHz. The memory clock was also increased to 1550MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
