Upgrading to GTX 1070. Do I need a new PSU?

I'll soon be upgrading to the GTX 1070 (probably near the end of the month or start of next month because they're gonna be sold out real fast). I have a 550w 80+platinum and was wondering if I'll be able to safely upgrade without changing my PSU? Currently running GTX 760.
