In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070.

The GTX 1080 has a 202 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1070. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 92.6 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 1080 has a 202 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 1070 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 12.9 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 less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 1070 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1080 has 67 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1070, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is much better than the GeForce GTX 1070.

The GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6383 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362. The GTX 1080 having 2021 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1070.

The GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070. The GTX 1080 requires 30 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1070 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1080 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 1070.
