ASUS STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
The Nvidia GeForce 1070 Ti series is priced right between the GTX 1070 and 1080, obviously. This is pretty reflective of the performance too, and it’s also quite a bit cheaper than the similarly performing VEGA 64, so I guess it’s priced pretty fairly at £485.28.
We’ve tested a bunch of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards so far, and while I was initially sceptical of them need to exist, I’m finding it pretty hard to hate them. Their performance is almost, and I mean very very closely matched to the GTX 1080. However, at a lower a price point and with plenty of overclocking potential, they’re easily the better value for money.
Vega Vs Nvidia
Budget not considered, if I were forced to pick a VEGA 64 or the 1070 Ti, I would be properly torn to decide. Both cards have some great benefits. However, this card is just straight up cheaper and performs about the same, making it a sure hit for many gamers. The latest model from ASUS blends amazing build quality, and a powerful cooler, making it easily one of the most attractive GPU on the market for under £500.
While the design of this card isn’t anything new to ASUS fans, it’s a tried and tested look that’s still one of my favourites on the market. Add to that the obligatory RGB lighting for some added visual kicks, the fan-hub feature, zero RPM mode, and that lovely backplate, and you’re getting a lot for your investment. All 1070 Ti’s are virtually the same, so pick the brand and style you love the most and go nuts!
