GeForce GTX 1070 May Become Nvidia's Best Selling Gaming GPU
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070, despite the price hike over its predecessor, could prove to be the best-selling gaming graphics processor for the company.
GeForce GTX 1070
Graphics specialist company Nvidia began launching new GPUs back in May. Their new graphics processors are based on the Pascal architecture and they are mostly targeted at gamers.
These new Nvidia processors offer significant power and performance efficiency improvements over their predecessor graphics processors based on the outdated Maxwell architecture. Market analysts have noticed that Nvidia has increased pricing generation over generation by about $50 when comparing each gaming-oriented graphics processor in the Maxwell family with the corresponding Pascal replacement.
According to The Motley Fool, based on numbers from the Steam Hardware Survey, Nvidia's $329 GeForce GTX 970 graphics card was the best selling product during the Maxwell product cycle. Now it would seem during the Pascal cycle, based on Amazon's best selling graphics card ranking, that the $379-plus GTX 1070 is on its way to become Nvidia's best-selling product.
GeForce GTX 1070 In Amazon's Top 10 Rankings
The best-selling graphics card list at online retail mega site Amazon is updated on an hourly basis. However, as of a recent check, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 has been the top 10 sellers on the list.
Out of the top 10 sellers, four graphics cards are based on the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. The rest of the positions on the list are occupied by Nvidia GPUs 1060 and 1080. It's difficult to estimate if total GTX 1070 volumes are actually greater than total GTX 1060 volumes without knowing the absolute sales numbers for these cards. However, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 shows up twice as many times among the top 10 sellers.

To the big sales of GTX 1070 are also contributing the OEM manufacturers using Nvidia's graphics cards in their gaming computers. This is the case of the Alienware VR-ready gaming laptops Alienware 15 and Alienware 17.
According to Gadgets NDTV, both the Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 will come with an option for the GeForce GTX 1070. The specialized gaming laptops will be available with processors up to Intel's Core i7 6820HK Skylake, with a 4.1GHz overclocked speed. Both models can be upgraded up to 1 TB of storage and 32 GB of RAM.
