How well can the GeForce RTX 3070 run games
28 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3070 will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card, when running 2020 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 998 games in todays list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Watch Dogs Legion getting 102 FPS with the GeForce RTX 3070, Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 102 FPS and Marvel's Avengers getting 102 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 RTX 3070 at 1440p with Watch Dogs Legion, which got a good set of FPS results. These were, Low: 205 FPS, Medium: 162 FPS, High: 109 FPS and Ultra: 78 FPS. We then checked out Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 205FPS, M: 162FPS, H: 109FPS, U: 78FPS. And another popular game was Marvel's Avengers that returned L: 205FPS, M: 162FPS, H: 109FPS, U: 78FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 3070 running at 1440p is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3070 in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3070? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 3070.
