    [SOLVED] 1070 not performing up to the mark

    I recently changed my 1060 3gb to a 1070 but my performance number didn't increase that much. It still nearly the same. Just a 5-10% increase. I didn't change my CPU though and its still the old 2400G. So what can the issue be here? I am on all latest drivers and Windows Updates.
