How well can the GeForce GTX 1070M run games
8 Jan 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 1070M will blast beyond the majority of games requirements at 1080p, so crank up your screen resolution to 1440p or 4K and let the beautiful AAA game visuals wash over you. This is how gaming is meant to be played but you are likely to have to pay top dollar for the GeForce GTX 1070M privilege. But if you can get this graphics solution, then its happy gaming. GeForce GTX 1070M is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1070M. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 814 games in todays list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing FIFA 21 getting 171 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1070M, Assassins Creed: Valhalla getting 42 FPS and Genshin Impact getting 62 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 GTX 1070M at 1440p with FIFA 21, which got a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 294 FPS, Medium: 245 FPS, High: 180 FPS and Ultra: 131 FPS. We then checked out Assassins Creed: Valhalla which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 64FPS, M: 55FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 32FPS. And another popular game was Genshin Impact that returned L: 125FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1070M is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1070M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1070M in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1070M? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 1070M is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, which is 21% more powerful and can run 973 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
