Asus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB DUAL OC White - £299.79 @ Amazon.fr inc 2 Free game codes!

Found 17th Apr 2017
Spotted this while trawling for deals on some GTX 1080's, seems like a very decent price, and from a reputable brand also. Not sure what this exact model is like but it's the cheapest GTX 1070 I have seen in a good while, worth a punt if you are looking for a really good mid-range card.

Asus specifications and marketing page can be found HERE!

Purchased using one of the many fee free foreign currency cards, and making sure you pay in € at the checkout, it is currently €349 + €6.16 shipping which works at at just under £299.79 at the time of writing.

It seems like this just went OOS while posting, I'll leave the deal up and live as Amazon seem to be coming good on pre-ordering these sorts of things over the past few months.

Hope this helps some folks.

EDIT: You can also claim the Ghost Recon: Wildlands game or For Honor, sorry for missing this.

EDIT 2: It would also appear that as of April 1st Asus an have offer where by you can claim a copy of Dawn of War III for FREE!
Only avilable to Pre-Order presently and is £35-40! so that's a cracking deal.
Link HERE! for all the details.

Hot hot hot! I bought the MSI one only a few weeks ago, but definitely would have gone for this if I saw it!

Also worth noting the free game key can be sold afterwards for £25-35 if not needed on eBay or the like (with the necessary redemption disclaimers).

They are generally always pessimistic when it comes to OOS items, I've has things quoted in 2+ months delivered in less than a week. It's sets your expectations low, and when they deliver much sooner you are very impressed, and if it is on time, then you are not angry or upset.
TY FOR reply.
basically a 60 quid time gamble them for me

Heh, at least they only take the monies at the point of dispatch. So you can always cancel if comes up cheaper else where.

Or if you don't want to wait you can get a GTX 1080 HERE! for only £420 presently, no game codes though.

Same way as you cancel a UK Amazon one, go into the orders on your account, and select cancel order, specifying the reason why. Easy to do in a browser that supports translation if your French is a bit rusty

mate do u think a 1070 is overkill for: 2 4k screens, mainly normal work office stuff, some medium setting games from 5 years ago?

Not too sure tbh, as my main use for this sort of powered card is applications where I use the GPGPU side of things. I only play older games, and not even on my most powerful cards ironically.

Indeed you can, you can log in to any Amazon account with your .co.uk one.

They actually took 3 months to deliver my i5 6600 so they do sometimes go over the predicted shipping date. Wasn't a fun wait admittedly especially when every other part was ready.
Can anyone see how long the warranty is?

It's a manufacturers warranty, so you'd still have to send it to Asus in The Netherlands for RMA service, so no difference.

You can get the rather tasty Zotac 1070 HERE! for only £340.79, in stock with free P&P.

Can't see it for 349 euro now. The cheapest is 399 euro.
Personally I don't see the point in getting a GTX 1070 if you have designs on gaming at very high/ultra levels above 1080p and if you are doing that there are plenty of cards that are cheaper than this one.

As an aside I saw a stack of brand new MSI Armor Edition GTX 1080s for £440 BIN on a major IT retailer's ebay page the other day there.

Yeah, looks like it's gone for now, I wouldn't say it won't go back down, but sometimes prices are increased based on views and popularity. Keep an eye on it over the next few days if you really want one, you might get lucky. If I see any other bargains I'll post them also.

Gotta be honest with you, KFA would not be my first choice of manufacturer if I was in the market for a GTX 1080. £15 more gets you the lowest end MSI card in the Armor Edition and that's bare minimum I'd be looking for. Just my personal choice and opinion I have to add.

Completely see where you are coming from, how ever the KFA/Galax cards are getting good reviews, and seem to be well liked. Not seem the MSI card that cheap recently, but there are places every day with prices fluctuating all of the time.

The 500 series cards are not going to be competing in this performance window, you might get very lucky with an RX 580 that clocks very high, and gives a none overclocked GTX 1070 a challenge in a few places, but 500's are a tweaking and re branding exercise.

The 1070 Exoc by KFA2 apparently OCs to 2ghz but could just be a cherry picked bunch from the reviews I read. I had the Palit 1070 which I paid only £380 last year and it was incredibly quiet and fast, if you can get that card for cheap I'd recommend it

Last Palit card I had was the 8800GTS 640MB, but it lasted pretty much forever.

If it was Vega I would be waiting with interest but its not and looking at the specs recently on Linustechtips its really nothing at all to get excited about. The top model is effectively a rebrand of the 480.

On a personal level I tend to stick to MSI cards which have never (fingers crossed!) let me down in the last 7 generations of cards since I moved to the green team from team red when I bought a GTX 680 five years ago now.

Don't rely on LinusTechTips for key detail. Wait for Anandtech, etc. for a proper breakdown. I find LinusTechTips to have gone downhill this last 18 months. Don't know what they're doing, but they're severely lacking in proper analysis and breakdowns of performance in cards these days.

Ridicilously hot! AMD is dead as a price/perf company.

It's extremely unlikely that the 500 series will share a pricepoint with the higher range 1070 cards. Also AMD leads the way with PricevsPerformance. Ryzen is incredibly good value for money for budget builds.

Back on topic - OP do you not think it worth waiting for 1080 cards now that the Ti is dropping and Vega is on the Horizon?

Well they are supposedly refreshing the GTX 1080's with faster DDR5X, or at least some AIB's are being allowed to do this, I don't know how much more they can drop to be honest the US MSRP is $499, and as per my link above you can get one from £419 presently, which is silly money compared to what they were pre-1080Ti. Vega won't make any difference until it is released, and even then I doubt they would drop the 1080 to less that £399 UK MSRP.
