MSI Reveals Its GeForce GTX 1070 Lineup, Headlined by the GAMING X 8G

Much like we saw with the GeForce GTX 1080 cards, MSI is giving the same treatment to the GTX 1070 lineup. NVIDIA's more affordable yet still crazy powerful option, the GeForce GTX 1070 is available today in the Founders Edition model, or soon in other options from the various board partners. MSI is offering four different versions of the GTX 1070 based on what you're after, just like the GTX 1080 line. The top model is the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G, which utilizes the Twin Frozr VI cooler for some serious overclocking potential without setting anything on fire. The Twin Frozr VI is the company's latest iteration of its thermal design, featuring high performance and good looks that are further enhanced with some RGB LEDs in the dragon logo. The card sports a 10-phase PCB design and Military Class IV components, as well as an 8+6-pin PCIe connector design to deliver plenty of power. Toss in the matte black solid metal backplate and you have one card that should last a long time.

Moving down the product stack brings us to the GeForce GTX 1070 SEA HAWK X, sporting a liquid cooler already attached. This cooler is the result of a partnership between MSI and Corsair, giving us all a chance to push the GTX 1070 to the absolute limit without worrying about an air cooler hitting a wall. It already has a factory overclock, but that Corsair Hydro Series liquid cooler should mean there is plenty left to discover on the core.

The third card in the GTX 1070 lineup is the ARMOR 8G OC. This card has a black and white Twin Frozr V cooler and Advanced Airflow Control for enhanced cooling performance, along with a striking design that should match up nicely in any number of builds. The MSI GeForce GTX 1070 ARMOR 8G OC also has Zero Frozr technology to stop the fans in low-load situations, so when you're just browsing the Web, you won't hear a thing.

MSI's finaly GTX 1070 is the GeForce GTX 1070 AERO 8G OC, featuring a thermal solution most similar to GeForce cards of old. It has a radial blower fan to push the air directly out of the case, while the black and white color scheme just makes it all look good.

Each MSI GeForce GTX 1070 video card is VR Ready thanks to the VR Gaming App, which gives one-click optimization for the best virtual reality experience. You can even pick up the VR Boost Kit, a 5.25" bay accessory that puts an HDMI connector and two USB 3.0 connections on the front panel to give you easy access for a VR headset.

No pricing for the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 lineup was announced at this time, but expect it to start at $379. Both the ARMOR 8G and AERO 8G cards have a non-OC version, too, which should be a bit cheaper than the OC model. All the cards should be on (r)etail shelves soon, so keep an eye out if you're in need of a new video card.
