The GTX 1070 has been one of the more popular cards released this year, and with good reason: it's pretty powerful. And as the months have passed, the GTX 1080 has come down in price, making it also a little more affordable.

But if you picked up an EVGA GTX 1070 or GTX 1080, you might have come a little stuck of late. Owners took to forums and YouTube to complain about thermal issues — specifically, their card turning into flames.


Remember when the NVIDIA GTX 1080 launched and those absurd prices of $1100 and more came out? Thankfully, that's not the case anymore. If you want the current top of the line graphics card, you don't have to fork out over a thousand dollars. In fact, it'll only cost you $865.


When AMD and NVIDIA showed off their brand new graphics cards earlier this year, it was all about virtual reality. The best of the best. Buttery smooth frame rates at 1440p and beyond.

That's all well and good, but not if you're someone who only has a few hundred dollars to spend or you want to build a PC on a console-equivalent budget. As the months have passed, however, both companies have lifted the veil on their budget offerings. And earlier this week under embargo, NVIDIA did precisely that when they announced the GeForce GTX 1050.


People cosplay as all sorts of things. Characters. Plants. Pipes from Mario. Suits of armour. You name it, someone's put together a costume and rocked up to a convention.

A cosplay you don't see that often at conventions, however, is graphics cards. Unless you went to PAX West recently.


It's been a fun year if you're in the market for a new graphics card. But there's been a clear divide between the two main manufacturers this year. AMD has been chasing people who want to spend under $500 for a new card, while NVIDIA has been squarely aiming at the higher end of the market.

But NVIDIA was never going to let AMD have the bottom end of the market to themselves. And that's become increasingly obvious today, with information leaking out about a GeForce GTX 1050.
