1070 and 1080 both work in SLI. 1060 and lower doesn't have any support for SLI.


This can be judged by the Absence of SLI connectors on the 1060 and lower cards which on the other hand is available on both the 1070 and 1080 cards.

Would a 1070, specifically a factory OC'd aftermarket one, be a worthy upgrade from my current 970? I'm hesitant because of the current pricing being above MSRP.

For NOW no
Maybe another 6 months to a year


I will say however that this GPU will give you ULTRA 1080p 60fps on virtually any game it touches and also handles 4k Ultra 45-60 fps on MOST games as well

You can max any game pretty much on that res with your current GPU,except maybe few like ark,watch dogs2 which have very bad optimization and even gtx 1070 is having trouble with them.Anyway its not worth to upgrade from gtx 970 to a 1070,its not that big increase in performance.

going from a 970 to a 1070 is a great upgrade. its bordering on 50% better in gaming performance while staying in the same power window. that is a worthy upgrade that you will see from day one.
