The GTX 1070 performs as promised: Slightly faster than the GTX Titan X. For a price of $450, the GTX 1070 makes everything in its price range obsolete as a purchase. Together with the GTX 1080, these two cards now rule the top 5 tiers.
In response to the GTX 1070, we have removed every graphics card with a comparable or higher price, except the GTX 1080. The R9 390X, for $380, stays for now, as the GTX 1070 Founder’s Edition is $450. (Other editions will launch later for $380.)
The GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti, R9 Fury, and R9 Fury X have all been removed from our recommendations. If they come down in price, they may return.
- R9 390X drops from Outstanding to Excellent (still a logical purchase, but just barely)
- GTX 1070 added to Outstanding, Exceptional
- GTX 1070 x2 added to Enthusiast
- GTX 1070 x2, GTX 1080 x2 added to Extremist
