Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070, Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz can run 583 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card and 16GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 784 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Battlefield 2042 is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 60 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Battlefield 2042 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 84 FPS or the Medium returning 65 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 57 FPS and then Ultra gets 46 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Forza Horizon 5 - In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Forza Horizon 5, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 72 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 55 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 33 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Far Cry 6 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Far Cry 6 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 1070, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 103 FPS, Medium setting: 81 FPS, High setting: 55 FPS, Ultra setting: 39 FPS.
