Was £589.00, 1070, 8GB it looks good. Might help someone.

(Not me though, trying to find a 1060 6GB, then this popped up)

All of these arguments along the lines of "Don't buy at this price, I bought my GPU for £100 less more than 10 months ago before the mining boom' are irrelevant. The current pricing environment is unavoidable. We can't all hop in time machines and go back in time to more reasonable prices. Comparisons like that aren't useful in determining what is 'good' value among current offerings.

Compare with prices you can actually find now or in the past few weeks, not 'amazing' deals nearly a year ago before an unprecedented surge in demand from cryptocurrency mining.

I like my 1070 but would never pay this much for it.

What you mean ? this is about as cheap your ever get a 1070 for.

With black Friday coming up and the new 1070 to coming out I wouldn't buy this as it's only a £30 odd saving, a 1070 would never be nearly £600

Dam, that is cheap, they seem to have gone up lately then.

It's £20 cheaper on Aria

I paid £295 for my G1 Gaming 1070 Dec 2016 (Amazon.fr warehouse, open box). Brexit vote and cyptomining both to blame for the prices.

i wonder when this miner crazy will be over and gpu drop price

The prices have dropped lower, Aria have already reduced their 1070 stock. This mode is £20 cheaper, Amazon might price match

Not for a long time new coin 'bitcoin gold' just started up and thats gpu mining. And to top it off nvidia cards are the best to mine the coin with.

I've never used Aria, are they reliable (and do they accept returns)?

There is very little confidence in Bitcoin Gold at the moment. You can use regular GPUs with something like NiceHash to mine other currencies (sell your bash power basically) and get paid in BTC. If you believe the news on Bitcoin, it’s likely to continue to trend up so can’t be sure GPU demand will drop. As a gamble I put a wedge in the other day and in a month, I’ve gained about 62% net.

As to nVidia being the best - they are the fastest but when you can get nearly twice as many AMD cards for the equivalent nVidia cos, that’s why AMD RX has been so popular regently.

Yeah I got it for that price last month, was reduced plus Amazon fresh trial discount...they will go down as all things eventually do

It's a crying shame that Vega wasn't all that we'd hope it would be and the graphics card industry seems to have huge supply issues now they are fulfilling orders for both gamers and miners.

Nvidia and AMD must be doing quite well out of all of this though.

Yeap, at this stage if you have held off this long then a little while longer will pay you dividends.

Good card, bad price and bad time to buy.

There's a Zotac 1070 going for as low as £350 (has been posted here a few times already), and on top of that, the 1070Ti is knocking around now for as low as £420. £40 more for performance that's within 5-10% of a GTX 1080.

EDIT: I'd also like to add that, if you overclock the new 1070Ti's by around 10% (very doable), you can squeeze GTX 1080 levels of performance from it. You can't do that with a standard 1070.
It makes buying either the standard 1070 or 1080 kinda redundant right now as for the price, you can pay a little more and get a card with much better performance or pay a lot less and get a card with the same performance.

I member.

It is still an extremely good card for 1080p, you are getting your money's worth if you bought one.

Let's see how Volta does next year.

laptops direct are doing the gigabyte windforce 1070 for the same price or the EVGA FTW on amazon for only 2.50 more would be a superior choice cooler imo
Edited by: "kizzzle" 2nd Nov

So I post a deal for a 1070 that's £20 cheaper than this and it's voted cold. Yet here we are more expensive and it's hot? It's stupid this forum.

Exactly, and you get Destiny 2 free - which you can sell for £30 to make it an even better offer over the 1070ti.

No, but I highly doubt you'll get an MSI Gaming 1080 for £474 either.

what's your point though?.... buy a high end 1070ti for more than a 1080 so you can overclock it to match the reference 1080? not to mention that you can overclock the 1080 just as easily.

Lower price and price/performance.

If you can buy card A for £500 or card B for £450, and card B can be overclocked to match the performance of card A, then why would you want to spend £50 more?
That's pretty much the case with the MSI Gaming 1070Ti and MSI Gaming X 1080. The prices are higher, but the difference between the two is £49.99 (on SCAN at least).
The price difference is even larger with the EVGA SC 1070Ti and EVGA SC/SC2 1080. There's £100 difference between the two cards there, and assuredly, the 1070Ti could be overclocked to match the 1080 variant.

Of course you can overclock a 1080 too and get even better performance out of those, but there's still a good argument to be made for the 1070Ti being a good buy for a lot of people.

Fair point, I suppose it's all relative to a particular model at a particular price as there are obviously many different combinations that may not justify that approach, there's also the gddr5x to consider as well.
Aside from this I'm patiently waiting on a good deal for a 1080ti I wonder if the moves in this range will have any effect on the 1080ti prices.

Again not a deal, overpriced, and now with the 1070 ti it's no btr its overpriced and stupid they should have stuck at producing far more 1080's and got those prices back down while meeting demand now they went to the time and expense of doing a new card with idea of being btr than vega 56 under £400 and were not going to see it.
Add to this there's a lot of talk that NVidia has once again held on to the prime 70ti chips meaning if you want the best over-clocker you need to buy the ref card.
I'll pas till there is an actual deal not just because it happens to be the best price in a bunch of badly priced cards.

I think the golden rule should be that 1070s should not be purchased above £350. There are going to be quite a few popping up in the following weeks. Is the zotac mini better at £350? It's almost the same for 30 quid less. Would I buy this instead of the zotac mini at the same price point? Most definitely!

Because the GTX1080 overclocks, too. And it comes with a lot more memory bandwidth which is useful if you're at 1440p or above, which I'm guessing you probably are at this tier of GPU.

Not according to all the big reviewers on youtube who have witnessed this on the 1080 and now are seeing the same with the 1070ti, is it coincidence that pretty much all ref cards boost higher? sure the fan is ramped up and noisy but it boosts ref card sales, I'm not sure why you say its baseless when a lot of tech tubers are all saying the same thing as they did and was proven with the 1080 so maybe you should be looking more into this yourself as you seem a little out of the loop.

I think board partners are getting very annoyed now what with price increases from NVidia then the founders edition nonsense then there was the GeForce gtx logo demand on all cards then the cherry picked silicon for NVidia ref cards then the stipulation of no overclocks on the 1070ti so as to sell move reference cards, its getting pretty bad, as soon as amd do something gd in the high end gpu arena they will get a lot of support from these guys I think NVidia are really pushing themselves into a bad spot down the road.

Do you have a source for this speculation? And you said 'again' like it's happened in the past? Again? Any sources? Never heard of it.

Link some of these 'big reviewers' that talk about Nvidia hoarding the good cards. Please.

You also mention 'when AMD do something good they will get support from AIB partners' but what about Vega? There is zero support right now.

I don't see anything you've said based on facts, got any sources?

Hi guys, I'm going back to PC gaming and I'm looking to put a rig based around b350/rz1600+1070. Is it worth to snatch this card now or wait for Black Friday/ Cyber Monday? What were components prices like last year? Thx

For £430 You can get a 1080 and overclock that a lot more. There are numerous reviews comparing the 1070ti to 1080 both overclocked. The difference is more than between stock as the 1080 has a lot more overclocking headroom in both the memory and gpu.
