31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Sea Hawk X 8GB Edition will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Sea Hawk X 8GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

How well will the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Sea Hawk X 8GB Edition run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 963 games in the list.

A GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Sea Hawk X 8GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a good frame rate when running Red Dead Redemption 2 on Ultra - 69 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Microsoft Flight Simulator which is 53 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Need For Speed Heat performs on this hardware, which gets a good 69 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Red Dead Redemption 2 on the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Sea Hawk X 8GB Edition to see that it got a reasonable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 138FPS, M: 109FPS, H: 73FPS, U: 52FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Microsoft Flight Simulator which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 40 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Need For Speed Heat where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were reasonable at 52 FPS. 1440p GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Sea Hawk X 8GB Edition PC gaming is certainly capable of running larger monitor gaming at Ultra or High graphics settings.
