Is the GeForce GTX 1070 getting a GDDR5X memory upgrade? Not so fast

Zotac recently added another GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card model to its product stack, and in doing so it seemingly revealed that Nvidia was adding a GDDR5X memory option to the 1070, like it did with the GeForce GTX 1060 in October.

The potential advantage of using GDDR5X memory is ultimately more bandwidth, by running at faster speeds. It remains to

For $10, Activision is basically giving away the Alexa-compatible Destiny 2 Ghost speaker

The Alexa-compatible Destiny 2 Ghost device released to a vitriolic response when it came out last year for $89.99.
