GALAX GTX 1070 Box Spotted

Even though GTX 1080 pre-orders are sold out like crazy, the real deal is the more budget friendly cards. With performance to rival the GTX 980Ti at a much lower cost, the GTX 1070 will be the go to card for price-conscious green team gamers. As part of their new marketing push, pictures of GALX’s GTX 1070 box and accompanying art have popped up.
From GALAX’s marketing, there appear to be 4 masked clowns, not unlike those in PayDay 2. We already know that the blue clown will be featured with the GTX 1080 and it looks like his red counterpart will be used for the GTX 1070 boxes. This leaves the grey and yellow clown either for the low-end GTX 1060 and 1050 or for the 1080Ti and some other card, perhaps the new Titan?
Since there is no information on whether or not that box contains the Founders Edition, it could either be that or a low-end custom GTX 1070. Hopefully, this means we’ll be seeing the GTX 1070 soon. We already have confirmed specifications from Nvidia but real-world performance is still a mystery. Other than the fewer CUDA cores and use of GDDR5, I wonder what else Nvidia has decided to cut out and how much would be left for the GTX 1060, the lowest GP104 SKU.
