In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a 379 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 960. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 108.6 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 GeForce GTX 1070 has a 379 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 960. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 60.3 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 GeForce GTX 1070 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 960, and so the GeForce 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 960.

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 GeForce GTX 1070 has 6144 MB more video memory than the GTX 960, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 144.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 960, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is massively better than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 is 1628. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 2734 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 960. This means that the GeForce GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 960. The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 960 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 1070 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 960.
