The  GeForce GTX 1070 is the video card you’ll want to buy

Nvidia’s GTX 1070 looks likely to be the best bang-for-buck graphics cards of its generation, stomping the GTX 970 and in many cases beating the Titan X.

These are good times for gamers: there have been nice price/performance solutions in the past, but I doubt there has been one as desirable as the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070.

There is certainly a more desirable graphic card, of course: the GTX 1080 is the one you lust over, but as Jon Martindale has said at Digital Trends, the GTX 107 is the one you’ll buy.

The numbers at Techspot -they’ve got a complete review with lots of benchmarks- show us that the GTX 1070 performs even better than the current GeForce GTX 980 Ti and is really close to the Titan X. Both will suffer a lot from this new competitor, much cheaper and really efficient. The comparison with the previous generation, the GTX 970 -who has been set as a requisite for a good VR experience- is astounding. For almost the same price you get around 100% the performance.

Astonishing. If you are thinking about upgrading your PC, there’s at least one thing you should have in mind. Buy a GTX 1070 and enjoy it.

Now the next step is a GTX 1070M. Pretty please?
