Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 923 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 GeForce GTX 1070 as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 934 games of our most demanding games list.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. 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 65 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 131 FPS or the Medium returning 103 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 69 FPS and then Ultra gets 50 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - 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 61 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 122 FPS or the Medium returning 96 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 65 FPS and then Ultra gets 46 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip - In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 74 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 56 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 33 FPS.
