If you ware looking for an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card to purchase you will quickly find that there are 21 different models widely available from NVIDIA’s board partners in North America. Gigabyte alone has five different models to pick from as you have Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition for those that are looking for the NVIDIA reference design and then four custom cards. The custom cards include the Gigabyte GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC model for Small Form Factor (SFF) builders, a GTX 1070 WindForce OC model as the entry level card, a GTX 1070 G1 Gaming aimed at gamers and then the GeForce GTX 1070 Extreme Gaming for those that are concerned with overclocking or what the highest clock speeds possible. Most gamers aren’t going to pay a premium for the Founders Edition by NVIDIA and while we love the Mini ITX form factor the full sized cards are still the most popular cards sold. That leaves three full sized Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 models that gamers will be interested in picking.
The model that we’ll be looking at today is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming as it is aimed at gamers and at just $429 it costs less than the Founders Edition model and looks to have some great features.
