Critics Call GeForce GTX 1070 “One Hell of a Graphics Card,” “Major Value,” “Significant Leap”

by Brian Caulfield

Reviewers are describing our new GeForce GTX 1070 GPU as an ideal mix of price, performance and power consumption in a series of technical reviews that began rolling in over the weekend.

Introduced earlier this month at the DreamHack gamer gathering in Austin, Texas, the GeForce GTX 1070 — and the GeForce GTX 1080 — are the first gaming GPUs based on our new Pascal architecture.

Both bring unparalleled performance within reach of more gamers than ever before. The result: reviewers are showering the GeForce GTX 1070 with endorsements.

  • PC World: “NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 is one hell of a graphics card, delivering Titan X-level performance at a price real gamers can afford,” they wrote. “The GeForce GTX 1070 is a prince worthy of a royal reception.”
  • Computer Shopper: “The GTX 1070 offers more bang for your gaming buck than any GPU we’ve tested.”
  • HARD | OCP: “NVIDIA has created a highly compelling video card for the masses looking for the best gameplay experience,” they wrote. “The GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition is likely to go down as a major value in terms of balance of performance, features, power efficiency and pricing.”
  • Tom’s Hardware: “GeForce GTX 1070 is faster than the company’s fastest Maxwell-based solution at a price point less than half of what a Titan X still sells for.”
  • Tweaktown: “There’s nothing that doesn’t impress with the GeForce GTX 1070.”
  • Polygon: “This is a slick piece of tech — a quiet beast of a graphics card that delivers more for less in almost every way possible,” they wrote. “This is a significant leap in technology.”
