Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 773 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card and 16GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 787 games of our most demanding games list.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Battlefield 2042. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 60 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Battlefield 2042 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 84 FPS or the Medium returning 65 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 57 FPS and then Ultra gets 46 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Battlefield 6 - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070.

Change graphics settings up to High for 57 FPS and then Ultra gets 46 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Elden Ring - In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Elden Ring, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals.
