How well can the GeForce GTX 1070M run games
2 May 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 780 games in todays list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Far Cry 6 will get 36 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1070M, Grand Theft Auto VI predicted to get 43 FPS and Scavengers 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 and researched how Far Cry 6 might perform on it leading us to predict a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 72 FPS, Medium: 57 FPS, High: 38 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. We then checked out Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 87FPS, M: 68FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS. And another popular game was Scavengers that returned L: 125FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1070M is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

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 967 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
