NVIDIA is going to unveil its next-Generation Graphics cards based on the Pascal architecture on Friday, 6 May at Nvidia Editor’s Event. The first two graphics cards based on the new architecture will be the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. NVIDIA itself confirms it by adding a countdown on its website, citing us that day and most interesting of all that this announcement will coincide with the official announcement of new Battlefield, so it is expected that they might showcase the potential of its new graphics card with one of the most anticipated shooters of the year.
Confirmed, NVIDIA will announce GeForce 1080 and GTX 1070 on May 6, 2016

This announcement was released by a curious puzzle with triangles (NVIDIA Illuminati confirmed) as a place that gives the “Order of 10” solution, which in turn is a website that shows the countdown of its official presentation.
The NVIDIA GeForce 1070 GTX would use a harvested / cut-down version of Pascal GP104 (GP104-200) silicon, possibly with 1664 CUDA Cores, 8 GB of memory GDDR5 by Samsung running @8.00 GHz with memory interface of 256 bits that would result in a bandwidth of 256GB / s.
The GeForce 1080 GTX would use GP104-400 silicon with 2048 CUDA Cores and would be attached to 8 GB of memory GDDR5X manufactured by Micron @ 12 GHz. The new GPU would keep the memory interface to 256 bits and would have a bandwidth that would move between 320/384 GB / s, far from the 720GB / s of Tesla P100 (Pascal GP100) with HBM2 memory, 512 GB / s offered by the Radeon Fury with HBM memory, and very close to the 336 GB / s of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
|NVIDIA Pascal GP104 Graphics Cards|
|Model||GPU Variant||Memory Size||Memory Type|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080||GP104-400-A1||8GB||GDDR5X|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070||GP104-200-A1||8GB||GDDR5|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060||GP104-150-A1||6GB||GDDR5|
So how do we know that it’s from NVIDIA? This is actually something that I can figure out. This font is NVIDIA’s custom font, a very distinguish style, which I believe is trademarked. No other company would use it, especially not AMD.
