28 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2020. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 926 games in todays list.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC graphics card is predicted to return a good performance on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at 1080p of 63 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict will get good frame rates of 67 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Assassins Creed: Valhalla, which is predicted to get 46 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to predict how the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC would deal with it. Our research revealed a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 126 FPS, Medium: 99 FPS, High: 67 FPS and Ultra: 48 FPS. Next we looked at Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict will be reasonable with a 51 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Assassins Creed: Valhalla that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 35. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC is a good choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1070 Gigabyte Windforce OC then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB as this is better than 991 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 27% better performance as well. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 22% better and can meet 986 of their recommended requirements.
