Introduction

GIGABYTE has released a slew of GeForce GTX 10 series graphics cards, with the continued push into the GTX 1070 market with its GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming graphics card. GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming graphics card was one of the more impressive GTX 1080s for me, as it only required a single 8-pin PCIe power connector but offered all of the performance of the cards with more power available to them, but will the GTX 1070 G1 Gaming repeat this magic?

The new GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming graphics card has the same CUDA core count as every other GTX 1070, and the same 8GB of GDDR5 RAM but GIGABYTE has, of course, played around with the clock speeds. The same WINDFORCE cooler keeps the GTX 1070 G1 Gaming card cool, with the triple-fan cooler staying mostly silent during our testing.

GIGABYTE has been really changing up its graphics card game with the GTX 10 series cards, and the GTX 1070 G1 Gaming is no different. Let's dive right into it.

Pricing & Availability

GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming is listed on Amazon for $479 at the time of writing, with stock available and shipping within days of the order being placed. This is actually a good price, considering that the GTX 1070 Founders Edition from GIGABYTE is only a little less at $449 and that the G1 Gaming will beat it.
