    Thanks for the review HH (and all the others you've done before, I'm a long time lurker), this is looking like it could be my next gpu!

    And then its not far away from 980ti performance. If there good deal on 980ti, it still might be worth to consider. 6GB is not bad.

    It will take a while for 1080 / 1070 prices to stabilize, while 980ti price still dropping.

    Nice. Now we just need to compare the MSI 1070 vs MSI 980Ti benchmarks :)

    Nice review HH! Got time until BF1 comes out to decide!

    So... If all go according to plan, we should expect the Gigabyte, the slightly OCed ones will be around 450 euros. That sounds fine by me. Still with that kind of money we were getting the x80 version, but inflation or something, damn it.

    Looks like this is pretty much perfect GTX 1070. The cooler seems to do rather nice job.

    Did this have any annoying coil whine issues?

    Cant believe anyone would go for an FE edition over these AIB cards, which are not only cheaper but better in performance/cooling. MSI 1070 looks mighty tempting. Over time, I expect it to pull further ahead of the 980ti with new game releases. But Maxwell I think should hold up better than Kepler due to its closeness to Pascals uarch.

    Great review. Typo in last paragraph on conclusion page: Oretty (?) much Nvidia decides what you max overclock is.

    Great! It looks like they really tackled that issue in these cards. The GTX 970 fiasco was pretty bad...

    Not sure if you can go by one card as a guarantee of no coil whine.

    Well, yeah but so far all custom 1080's have been pretty much free from coil whine too. It doesn't look like 1070 designs are that much different.

    What do you mean pull further ahead? Is it faster than the AIB 980Tis? Would love to see some direct comparisons!!!

    A lot of cards this generation have had coil whine issues. I wonder what the deal was.

    Great review HH and nice card!

    Just wondering... Guess 1070 natively supports GDDR5X, but we all know NVidia is not going to let AIB's to release 1070 with GDDR5X anytime soon (if ever) because it'll have even more impact on 1080 sales. Guess OC'ed 1070 with GDDR5X would outperform stock 1080 for sure.

    I'm mentioning 1070 GDDR5/GDDR5X "situation" because probably most of us here remember lots of older GPU's capable to run two types of VRAM, either on GDDR3 or GDDR5, they performed significantly faster on GDDR5. Backten I had PowerColor Radeon HD 4850 first with 512MB GDDR3 and later bought also PowerColor Radeon HD 4850 with 1GB GDDR5 (still have them both in my basement stash): GDDR5 version was way much faster than GDDR3 with same OC on GPU.

    Will we ever found out how 1070 would perform on GDDR5X... probably never... :(

    Nice write up, some grammatical/typos here and there though, namely:

    Words like "kinda" seem a little out of place in a professional review, also a typo on "years", namely under:

    "It has plenty power and has the graphics memory to deal with games for eyars to come"

    Either way, solid write up, nicely done. :)
