In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac PGF Extreme 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Crossfire.

The GTX 1070 has a 556 MHz higher core clock speed but 40 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1070 manages to provide 26.7 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 556 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 270X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 35.6 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 R9 270X, 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 R9 270X.

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 4096 MB more video memory than the R9 270X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The R9 270X has 102.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1070, which means that the memory performance of the R9 270X is massively better than the GTX 1070.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac PGF Extreme 8GB has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4526 and the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 2285. The GTX 1070 having 2241 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1070 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 270X.

The GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 270X. This means that the GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 270X.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac PGF Extreme 8GB requires 220 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire requires 360 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the R9 270X. The R9 270X requires 140 Watts more than the GTX 1070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 270X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac PGF Extreme 8GB 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 1556MHz and goes up to 1746MHz, 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 220W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The GTX 1070 is a high end performance GPU, capable of gaming at 1080p across all modern 2016 AAA games at high graphics settings and delivering 60+FPS.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac PGF Extreme 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon R9 270X Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon R9 270X put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon R9 270X to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to x% better than a single Radeon R9 270X performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single Radeon R9 270X. Expect this combination to draw up to 360 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
