ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Video Card (GTX1070-8G)
Based on the newest generation in the NVIDIA GeForce Series, the ASUS GeForce® GTX 1070 is powered by the latest NVIDIA architecture, Pascal. With a focus on performance and power efficiency, Pascal-powered graphics cards are said to rival one of the most revered cards in history, the Titan X. Boasting performance that is three times faster than the previous GTX 900 series, the Pascal architecture redefines the current standard of gaming and is designed to keep up with the emergence of virtual reality gaming, multi-monitor display, and ultra high resolution graphics.
NVIDIA’s Pascal is the successor to Maxwell, a 2014 architecture initially built answer the needs of increased energy efficiency. This time, NVIDIA has designed the Pascal architecture to offer significant improvements in both energy efficiency and performance through an improved transistor overlay with FinFET fabrication technology. With speeds over five teraflops in computational works loads and deep learning, the Pascal architecture is also designed to accommodate greater application scalability with enhanced CPU to GPU communication.
The ASUS GeForce® GTX 1070 is a VR Ready card, supporting NVIDIA’s VRWorks™, a collection of API’s, libraries, and engines, made enhance virtual reality gaming. VRWorks™ improves upon all aspects of immersive VR gameplay by allowing developers to create realistic sound, sight, touch, and behavioural interactions in games. Combined with the power of the new Pascal architecture, these factors work together to allow gamers to experience a low latency, high performance gameplay with unmatched realism.
However, immersive gameplay does little to provide an advanced gaming experience unless the games are interactive, and visuals are cinematic in quality. This is where NVIDIA Gameworks™ comes in. Incorporated into the latest generation of NVIDIA cards, Gameworks™ provides support for developers to make games with an environment that is true to life. For players that always keep up to date with the latest release in games, Gameworks™ support, which includes software such as PhysX, VisualFX, and OptiX, is vital for playing current and upcoming triple A titles. As an example, some of these games such as Watch Dogs, Call of Duty, and Assassin’s Creed incorporate NVIDIA Gameworks™ into their framework to create the breath taking gameplay and unique gaming environment they are known for.
While these features are impressive, they do not distinguish the ASUS GeForce® GTX 1070 from other GTX 1000 series cards. However, what does is the inclusion of ASUS GPU Tweak II software. GPU Tweak II allows gamers to take full control over their graphics card with adjustable clocks speeds, voltages, and fans speeds. Made with beginner hobbyists in mind, GPU Tweak II includes both a standard and an advanced mode to accommodate users with varying degrees of over clocking experience. Gamers that enjoy streaming or recording gameplay will also find the ASUS GeForce® GTX 1070 an appealing card as a one-year premium license of XSplit Gamecaster is included with purchase. Gamecaster simplifies streaming and recording to a single click. With support for embedded overlays and in game annotations, XSplit Gamecaster allows both professional and casual streamers to produce quality content for viewers.
The advent of the GTX 1000 series ushers in a new era of graphical computing. While NVIDIA releases new products every year, the Pascal architecture introduces a new approach to achieving fast and efficient performance. One the newest cards on the market today is the ASUS GeForce®
GTX 1070, a powerful card that delivers an impressive gaming experience. With support from NVIDIA, the GTX 1070 is a card unlike any other.
