GALAX teases single slot GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card

GALAX surprises with single slot GeForce GTX 1070, single 8-pin PCIe connector

GALAX has hit a milestone with its GeForce GTX 1060 HOF GOC used to reach a record breaking 3GHz GPU clock, beating the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 performance in pixel fill rate - but the company had a surprise for the world at its event.




GALAX teased a single slot GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, with a slick metallic shroud that has an exposed area on the left of the card that teases its pure copper heat sink. GALAX has equipped the single slot GTX 1070 with a blower-style cooler that pushes the air out of the exhaust vent on the back, with the PCB smaller than the Founders Edition card, and it uses an extended shroud cover.




We can expect dual SLI connectors, 1 x 8-pin PCIe power connector - and display connectivity that consists of 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI, and 1 x DVI. GALAX is expecting to launch the card in early 2017 with a retail price of around $379.
