"KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 EX OC 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card"
Get stuck into silky smooth Virtual Reality paired with your HTC Vive or Occulus Rift VR headset and experience ultimate immersion with the VR Ready GeForce GTX 10 Series, offering over twice the amount of relative performance of the GTX 900 Series in virtual reality games. Using NVIDIA's latest GPU technologies such as NVIDIA Ansel, NVIDIA GameStream Technology, and the blisteringly fast Vulkan API paired with DirectX 12, you've never had so much performance at your disposal. If you haven't already upgraded your gaming PC system, now is the time to do so. The KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 EX OC will devour all of the upcoming and latest PC games such as Prey, Mass Effect Andromeda, and Skyrim: Special Edition with little effort. Pascal architecture also boasts incredible power efficiency, keeping your gaming system cooler much quieter during longer gaming sessions.

NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce® GTX 1070 is one of the most advanced gaming GPUs ever created, powered by the high-performance, energy-efficient new NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture. Pascal enables truly game-changing performance with captivating sights and sounds, as well as next-generation VR performance that offers the lowest latency and plug-and-play compatibility with leading headsets.

NVIDIA Ansel Technology exclusive to 10 series allows you to grab a screenshot in supporting games such as The Divsion and upcoming Unreal Tournament from any 360 degree position, ability to increase resolution, use cool filters so that you can screenshot those perfect headshots and view them in a full 360 degrees.

NVIDIA VR AUDIO Works Technology exclusive to 10 series is interative audio so realistic path traced audio meaning sound bounces off objects just like it would in the real world further improving the gaming experience on the audio side.

NVIDIA GeForce 10 series is based on 16nm finfet architecture resulting in just 150W TDP power consumption for a graphics card that can outperform Titan X in many situations whilst being upto three times more efficient. Overclocking headroom is also exceptional with around 1.8GHz core overclocks being possible (not guaranteed) resulting in 20% and higher overclock potential.

NVIDIA Simultaneous Multi-Projection Technology renders multi screens in one path mean performance in Virtual Reality titles on VR headsets such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift results in double the performance of Titan X making 10 series the King of Virtual Reality and whilst being upto three times more efficient at the same time.

That's a really good deal but in honesty I would rather put a few more pennies away and get the 1080 when the founders cards have been replaced with the cheaper faster ones.

​Is there a huge difference between the 1080 and 1070, I mean how would any game currently fare when playing? Surely this should run anything at ultra?
Ok ignore that just did a spec comparison and the 1080 can run a third faster!

It's basically a third faster for a third more money.
Incase people are wondering these KFA2 EX OC cards are excellent, especially the '8-pack edition' for certain models. Very underrated

This one's rather more built down to a cost than previous models though. It doesn't even stop the fans at idle for example, whereas previous EXOC cards like the 970 did. They spin at around 1000RPM at idle, which is what a card like the MSI 1070 Gaming X gets up to under load. Not the end of the world, but considering you can get the Palit GameRock, which is one of the absolute best 1070s around, for the exact same price at Scan, it doesn't seem like such a great deal.

Not sure where on earth people are getting a third from. "Specs" don't equalise speed.

The 1080 is 17% faster than a 1070 on average (Some games will be more, some less, but none get to 30% from what I can see). Cheapest 1070 I've found was £360~, cheapest 1080 is around £570~.

I was using the language of the previous poster but I agree with you and personally think that the 1070 is better value. The likes of PCGamer and Toms Hardware tend to agree with me as well.

True its the GALAX EX OC / 8pack editions that are really premium but I was more pointing out that these are solid cards that are often overlooked because people often haven't heard of them. Maybe due to their OCuk exclusivity. The 970 EX OC 8-pack edition didn't have zero RPM fan mode btw, at least 1 fan was always spinning by default.
IMO Price-wise right now all 1070's are a little.. well y'know

Well of course it runs faster, it's a higher end card but the clock speed is not the most important part.
All these cards are overpriced. Far more than 970 on launch and more than nvidia were quoting.

Nvidia never quoted prerelease pricing for any region apart from the United States. They were quite clever about that.
I'm tempted at this price. My monitor is a 3440x1440, I was holding out for the 1080, but struggling to justify the price point. I'm still on a GTX 770.

Yes I do unless you are willing to import one and know a vendor who can ship one to you without you being pulled over for VAT etc. Either that or if you're taking a holiday in the US anytime soon.

As it happens I got mine today (Zotac AMP! model) for £360 but I had to pull a few strings to get it at that price.

Only playing RO2 at present, and it runs ok. Not bought any newer titles due to lack of graphic power. I've hung on a bit as even the 980ti didn't seem capable.
Wish AMD could come up with a decent alternative soon, if only to stop nvidia taking the p*ss with their prices. Not holding my hopes out for vega.

Student discount plus a few other things.

A parcel from a mate marked as a gift and from a low risk country is unlikely to gather and kind of attention or suspicion unless it's sent by an overnight insured courier.

I have the same resolution display and a 980ti. Runs everything perfectly. Getting 80-110 fps in Doom. Over 100 in Bioshock Infinite and Titanfall. Need to try some others but amazing so far.
The 980ti sits right between the 1070 & 1080.

I can't believe you have a 770 running that display. I usually upgrade both monitor and gpu at the same time if required.

How do you find 3440x1440? Which monitor did you go for, and would you recommend it?

US is definitely a low risk country when it comes to the UK post office. Unless your mail is scanned and looks like it might contain cash, narcotics or weapons then nobody at Mount Pleasant is going to care.

For Amazon student discount you just need an NUS Extra card which, as a college student, you should be eligible for. It would get you 5% off a GPU.

Problem was the monitor blew most of my "play" money!! Then I waited for a bit to recover funds and all the talk was of the GTX 1080 being the mutts proverbials so I just hung on. That review of the 1070 makes interesting reading.

I went from a 970 to a 1070 this week. The upgrade cost me about 200 quid all in. Tbh I have mixed feelings about it. It's a marked performance improvement for sure and it's a lot quieter than my old 970 but I wouldn't say that it's a huge jump personally. At least not as much as Nvidia said that it would be anyway.

No. For what little extra performance it would have given me at 2k, I don't think a 500-600 quid purchase is justified.

I'd rather just disable AA and get the frames up that way if I really have to. It is pretty much everything out though apart from GTA V. With Hairworks off and everything else maxed in The Witcher 3 I get 60-80fps at 1440p whereas my 970 never would have come close to that.

Aftermarket 980Ti vs aftermarket 1070 is an awkward comparison because Pascal cards can't really be overclocked.

I'm guessing the other strings are someone working at Amazon with a staff discount.

My friend would help but I'm not sure what to fill in on the forms like value and such, can you pm me with any advice for importing? He's a bit of an **** and joked about wrapping it in EU flag paper, but I don't think my post would get scanned.

EVGA have international warranty too, so I'd get one of those, although Zotac have 5 years which is nice.
