    About time, i have been wanting to upgrade from my 970, nothing wrong with it overal, but i would like the option of a little more oomph on games, Vr ones being the biggest one here as although the 970 runs them fine it does not have any spare power left for supersampling, which improves the VR image somewhat, so if i can get a 1070 for £299 then that would be nice.

    To me, this now points to yields being so good for the GP104 chip, that it butthurts to deactivate usable SM's, so the 1070Ti was brought out.
    How long before we see the hashrate of the Ti ( and the suddden lack of stock...) ?

    Luckily, you'll probably have custom cards from day 1, so i'd jump on the bandwagon, before the miners get their hands on them.
    I would think there is a chance this card will be better than Vega at mining unfortunately.

    I don't what techarp has been smoking but they better share it with rest of us LoL, as for price cut on GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition to just $399 WTF that funny it has always been at that price for some time on Nvidia own site for Founders Edition last I heard was that it was going to drop to $379 but that hasn't happing in fact the 1070 TI got a $20 bump in price BooHoo, but there was time when the GTX 1070 had reach that $329 before the price when thru the roof due mining.

    Those markets aren't monopolies, there are alternatives, and large used markets for them as well.

    for 50~70$ more I would set up my 1060gtx to 1070gtx but that providing evga prices lower before the time frame is up, I could set up to a 1070ti, but i not sure about that extra 180$ need reviews

    Too bad in Canada were not likely to see any real price drop any time soon they always milk the higher prices as long as they can here.

    The prices in Canada are not more than prices in the US

    I feel for my Canadian compatriots. I really can't stand when US citizens claim that other countries don't pay more, yet they don't live there. Grrrrr.

    It's the same for Australia. We pay through the nose for technology, it's quite ludicrous really

    I just looked at prices on newegg.

    Converted, they are the exact same

    Most states have about 10% sales tax plus shipping.

    well, its worth spending a fractional more and get the vega 56 as its £10 more than the 1070 at the moment!
    And if they drop the 1070 by another £30 , i would still get the vega 56.

    Before the mining craze hit supplies hard there were GTX 1070's going as low as for £330 (both Asus dual OC & MSI armor I believe).

    Yeah I don't know where that guy is getting the same prices at but looking at Newegg.com vs. Ca the cheapest 1080 is 28$ Us more expensive and then there is in most provinces 13% sales tax and this is a good case.
