Following the HTC Vive’s recent price cut from $799 to $599, HTC is now offering a bundle of Vive hardware and an Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition GPU to US customers for $999. The offer is available on the official Vive website while stocks last.
While it’s not a spectacular deal, most GTX 1070s still tend to retail above $400, and the Founder’s Edition, with its fancy ‘tessellated’ cooler design, can be hard to come by (it is currently out of stock on Nvidia’s site).
The previous generation GTX 970 continues to be the minimum spec for the Vive, but the GTX 1070 GPU is a much better option today, with its Pascal architecture bringing various VR optimisations, giving you greater headroom for running demanding VR titles at higher quality settings. We recommended the 1070 as a great ‘mid range’ GPU option for VR in this article.
