Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Armor 8GB Edition, Xeon E3-1271 v3, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Xeon E3-1271 v3 processor, a GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Armor 8GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 376 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 823 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Xeon E3-1271 v3.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Cyberpunk 2077 with this PC. To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Armor 8GB Edition you can enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 50 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 69 FPS, and at Medium 103 FPS and then on Low it would return 131 FPS. The GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Armor 8GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 65 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Armor 8GB Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Assassins Creed: Valhalla frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 75 FPS, 1080p High setting: 65 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 44 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 67 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 58 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 33 FPS, 1440p will get 56 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 74 FPS. Based around the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Armor 8GB Edition launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
