Tech Power Up have been taking a look at the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8 GB graphics card - here's a snippet from their review:

The GeForce GTX 1070 uses the same Pascal GP104 graphics processor as the GTX 1080, with just 1920 enabled shaders instead of 2560, which also affects the number of texture units that are down to 120 from 160. With 64, the number of ROPs is the same, and so is the memory capacity at 8 GB. However, today's review subject, like all GTX 1070 variants uses GDDR5 memory, unlike the GTX 1080, that comes with GDDR5X. GDDR5X offers twice the bandwidth at the same operating frequency, so NVIDIA is running the GeForce GTX 1070's memory at a frequency of 2 GHz in order to make up for that.

£443 at OCUK with lots of positive reviews.

If I were in the market for a new card I think this is the one I'd choose.

Well, I'm going to start looking for new card, as well as my 780 seems to perform I want a DX12 card. Something like this or an EVGA card will fit the bill nicely.
