XCOM 2

GeForce GTX 1070

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1070 Performance Review

Getting the XCOM 2 running while using a GeForce GTX 1070 can see it could get a very strong 139 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1070 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 45 frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $8.42 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

If the gaming PC that has this GeForce GTX 1070 in it also had 8GB system memory and a processor that is as or more powerful than the Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz then Ultra 1440p is the most optimum way to play XCOM 2.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for XCOM 2, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 100 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 76 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 45 FPS.
