More stock of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 has finally entered the market.

It’s good news for all gamers and VR enthusiasts: the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 low supply is no longer an issue. You hear that right, GTX 1070 has finally reappeared again on the market after it ran out stock. It did not cross NVIDIA’s mind that its GTX 1070 would be selling this excellent, causing product shortage. This has forced customers to turning to some custom cards although these cards are being sold far above GTX 1070 price. Fortunately, you can now purchase it directly from NVIDIA’s website, maximum two. Yes, NVIDIA only allows two GPUs per customer because the company wants to ensure that GTX1070 won’t be all taken by the resellers. Why is this little brother of GTX 1080 so popular, anyway?

It isn’t too much to say that NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 is the successor of TITAN X. NVIDIA unveiled the details on the GTX 1070 at the same time they announced the GTX 1080. The GTX 1070 is NVIDIA’s second tier Pascal based graphics card; it is the more scaled back and budget-friendly version of NVIDIA’s first Pascal based card. The GeForce GTX 1070 has the today’s standard double wide card, being 10.5 inches long. It sports the same single fan cooler as its older brother does, covering all the components. It requires 500 watt power supply, and the clock speeds are considered lower. GTX 1070 comes with 8GB of video memory, uses the more traditional GDDR5 and the chip has only 1920 cores. This all of specs gives NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 the ability to perform well at the 1440 resolutions, meaning it is well-suited for lower resolution display setup and VR systems.

If compared to NVIDIA’s previous cards, GeForce GTX 1070 actually offers the almost same performance levels of GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 1080, but at much lower price tag. While GTX 1080 sells at $699 for the Founder’s Edition and $599 for the standard version, GTX 1070 sells at $449 for the Founders Edition and $379 for the standard one. GTX 1070 is considered to be the cheaper version of GTX 1080, and with GTX 1080 proving about 30% faster than TITAN X, you know what that makes GTX 1070. Being a great graphics card GTX 1070 is, let’s just hope that the current stock of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 would not run out as fast.
