I've not heard anything about 495.44 being buggy.  Rather, I think your 
issue is that that version of the driver no longer supports your card. 
I have a GTK 1050 Ti and it works fine; I just need to use the 470.86 

You can see at the nvidia driver search/download site that your 1070 is 
only supported by the 470 version of the driver:


Install the following packages from AUR and you should be fine:

libxnvctrl-470xx 470.86-1
nvidia-470xx-dkms 470.86-3
nvidia-470xx-settings 470.86-1
nvidia-470xx-utils 470.86-3
opencl-nvidia-470xx 470.86-3
