Nvidia's GTX 1070 has arrived – here's where to get it

Following hot on the heels of the GTX 1080's release a fortnight ago

Good news for those who have been unable to contain their excitement at getting their mitts on a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card – you can now grab one of these temptingly priced pixel pushers online.

The GTX 1070 is on sale as of now and is a more affordable slice of Pascal-powered graphics goodness compared to its bigger brother the 1080.

The GTX 1070 Founder's Edition has a suggested retail price of £399 ($449 in the US), and the vanilla GTX 1070 weighs in at £329 ($379 in the US).

You'll be able to grab the card at the usual major component retailers including the likes of Scan, Ebuyer and Overclockers – the latter of which already has an EVGA GTX 1070 Founder's Edition 8GB available priced at £410.

Hunting high and low

If you're on the hunt for a GTX 1070 and want to assess all your options, a good place to start is Nvidia's UK store, which will point you in the right direction in terms of available stock across retailers.

Nvidia's GTX 1080 went on sale a fortnight ago, but it was a far more expensive proposition at an eye-watering £619 ($699 over in the US) for the Founder's Edition and £529 ($599) for the standard version.

If you're interested in the exact differences between the two cards, and why you're paying a couple of hundred quid more for the top dog model, then check out our Nvidia GTX 1080 vs GTX 1070 feature. The long and short of it is, though, that the 1070 is an absolute beast in terms of bang for your buck.
