Let’s not beat about the bush here: MSI’s GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G is the fastest graphics card I’ve ever personally tested. NVIDIA’s Pascal graphics family steamrolls through everything I’ve thrown at it, with nary a hiccup to be seen. It offers incredible performance for the price, and it’s so quiet and restrained that you’d have trouble knowing it’s in your system. As an upgrade to the GeForce GTX 970, it’s a shoe-in for anyone with the money available. As an upgrade from anything older, it’s easily one of the biggest performance jumps you’ll ever witness. So let’s get to it, shall we?
