In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Asus Dual.

The GTX 1070 has a 456 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 136 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1070. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 98.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1070. 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 456 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1070. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 42.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1070. 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 980, 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 980.

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 Asus Dual and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 980 has 192.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1070, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 is massively better than the GTX 1070.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Asus Dual has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4590 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 6724. The GTX 980 having 2134 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1070.

The GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 980. This means that the GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 980.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Asus Dual requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI requires 350 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 requires 200 Watts more than the GTX 1070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Duel is a High-End Graphics Card based on the 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 central unit runs at 1582MHz and goes up to 1771MHz, in Turbo Mode.

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 Asus GTX 1070 is capable of running 2016 AAA games at high graphics settings. This GPU will deliver strong frame rates at 1080p on any game at high graphics levels.

System Suggestions
The Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Dual GPU is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 980 4GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs codenamed GM204-400-A1 which, together, offer 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 128 ROPs, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1126MHz and goes up to 1216MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 300W and 400W.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is over 7% faster than AMD's Radeon R9 295X2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Six Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI.
