We ramped it up to 4K gaming and we were having a hard time believing our eyes when the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 8GB pushed out 43.1 FPS. Thus far the Strix 1070 is looking good for a true 4k gaming GPU.

Cranking the heat up to 4k resolution the GTX 1070 rewarded us with 43.6 FPS and indeed most of the cards gave us playable frame rates but none with speed of the Pascal GPU’s.

GTA 5

GTA 5

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.

GTA_5_1440

 

GTA 5 at 1440P with very high settings and 4x MSAA 69.7 FPS and so far the GTX 1070 is kicking some serious butt at higher resolutions.

GTA_5_2560

 

 

At 4K GTA 5 put a little crunch on the FPS but the GTX 1070 chucked out 35.4 FPS with no frame flipping or stuttering. Motoring around the corners and pushing the various vehicles was a breeze that happened in real-time speed. At times we found ourselves having to pause and figure out exactly where we were headed because the game was flying by so fast.

  1. Why not pish the memory? This card benefits well from memory OC over 9ghz

  2. 1) I think its the GTX1080 that has Two power (8+6) connects, whist it is the GTX1070 that has the single 8-pin. Not the other way around (as the File image shows).

    2) It seems that the only thing that makes these faster is the clock speeds due to the smaller (16nm) FinFet stranding; because the 1070 has less Stream processors, less Rasterisers, less Tesselation units and less texture units than the stock GTX980 and it also has less Transistors than the 980ti…. So it should be cheaper….

    3) Is it really worth the update from a gtx980, if it just cooks quicker?

    I`m concerned, the 1070 held back…. and a Ti version will be released with as many, or more:- Stream processors, Rasterisers, Tesselation Units, and Texture Units than the 980Ti.

    Hope so…
    Darn it… that means I will wait a month or two longer…. Misfiring head.

  3. I have only ever seen ONE 8-Pin power connect on the Asus GTX1070 Strix… and yet many sites report it has Two, as this site claims.

    The photos only show One… so, which is it? Is there a `Hidden (secretive) 2nd Power connect`?

    Funnily enough, this site also claims the GTX1080 Strix has only ONE 8-pin power connect…. So, it seems the faulty Graph is being shared internationally, without any check or edit.
