If you’re on the hunt for a shiny new graphics card, here’s a great deal on an Nvidia 10-series GPU that could convert even the most dedicated console gamers.
Currys’ Ebay store has just unleashed one of the best graphics card deals of Black Friday, dropping the price of a brand new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 to just £339.99.
The card in question is an Asus-branded version of the GTX 1070, with the same high-end specs as the model we reviewed earlier this year.
While the GTX 1080 won our Graphics card of the Year award, the GTX 1070 represents the sort of GPU that most people should actually buy, especially if they take an interest in VR or game on a 1440p monitor.
We gave the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 a 4.5/5 score in our review, praising its efficiency, quietness, and excellent performance. Here was our verdict at the time: “Want judder-free 1440p gaming? Then you should buy the Nvidia GTX 1070.”
Performance at 1440p is phenomenal, even in AAA games at High settings. If you’re upgrading from a two-year-old GPU, you’ll be amazed at the difference.
We’ve never seen the GTX 1070 so cheap. The card started its life at around £400 some versions with fancier cooling systems cost in excess of £450.
So why so cheap? This Asus model is one of the more basic GTX 1070s you can buy, with a single, relatively small fan cooling the entire card. This will make a small difference to performance when compared to the higher-end GTX 1070s, but there’s still no denying this is an incredible deal.
