The Asus GeForce GTX 1070 is currently on sale for $410 but PC Gamer received an email yesterday about a special promo code to bring the price down to $390. A great price for a great graphics card. This super special deal is supposedly only available for those who received the email. However, it seems like anyone can pick up the card for that discounted price right now.
According to PC Gamer, they tried the code on an account that didn’t get the email from Newegg and it still worked. However, they note that it’s possible the code won’t work for everyone. The Newegg promo code for anyone interested is: EMCXBRBK2
The card also comes with a copy of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, the upcoming game from Ubisoft. So even without the special deal, this card is worth the price. Especially for what you get for your money.
The boasts VR friendly HDMI ports. This essentially means that there are two HDMI 2.0 ports so you can connect a VR headset and display at the same time. As a bonus, there are two DisplayPort 1.4 ports and a dual-link DVI-D port also. The graphics card is even 4K ready for those with 4K resolution monitors.
It comes with a built-in streaming software called X-Split. This is one of the most popular streaming software currently available on PC. According to the Amazon page for the product, it has the “ultimate monitoring and streaming control” built into it due to the X-Split Gamecaster and also GPU Tweak II.
So this is a strong card then. If you’ve been thinking about getting an upgrade then this GPU is a solid choice. The added possible discount also makes the offer seem much more consumer friendly so we’d recommend taking a closer look at this GPU to see if it’s what your rig needs.
