How well can the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB run games
2 May 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Game performance for the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 998.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB is predicted to run Battlefield 6 with strong performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 94 frames per second. Comparing this to Far Cry 6 which is predicted to get good results, where it averages 64 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Days Gone, which is predicted to run at 102 frames per second.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB at 1440p and researched how Battlefield 6 might perform on it leading us to predict a good set of FPS results. These were, Low: 131 FPS, Medium: 101 FPS, High: 89 FPS and Ultra: 71 FPS. We then checked out Far Cry 6 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 129FPS, M: 102FPS, H: 68FPS, U: 49FPS. And another popular game was Days Gone with predictions of L: 205FPS, M: 162FPS, H: 109FPS, U: 78FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB, this is a very strong choice of graphics cards at higher resolution gaming. 4K gaming with this graphics card is certainly something that can be achieved across a number of the latest games and still achieve good graphics settings at those resolutions. Ultra 1440p is also a regular occurrence with this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB 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 RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX 8GB.
