10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games.

GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 825.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that FIFA 22 will get 113 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition, Grand Theft Auto VI predicted to get 46 FPS and Far Cry 6 predicted to get 45 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition at 1440p and researched how FIFA 22 might perform on it leading us to predict a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 228 FPS, Medium: 179 FPS, High: 121 FPS and Ultra: 86 FPS. We then checked out Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 93FPS, M: 73FPS, H: 49FPS, U: 35FPS. And another popular game was Far Cry 6 with predictions of L: 91FPS, M: 71FPS, H: 48FPS, U: 34FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition is one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Founders 8GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 6000 Series Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB, which has 27% better performance and can run 991 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
