EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 (P/N: 08G-P4-6276-KR)

Final Thoughts

Video cards come and go, and over the years you see hundreds of models and one or two mark milestones in your memory. Take the Nvidia 8800GT, a Crysis-ready video card from times gone by, the GTX-480 hot to the boiling point but ran sweet and fast. Then in one fell swoop the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 pushes all those cards from the past back a notch and you see performance you thought impossible just the last generation of video cards.

EVGA can over engineer a video card like no other company and makes no bones about it. The 10 + 2 phase power is just over the top, geek drooling good, and the ACX 3.0 cooling solution is whisper silent, and the whole package just leaves you shaking your head at how right EVGA got every detail. The increased TDP power limit to drive the extra power phases, double ball bearing fans for 400% increased lifespan, dual BIOS and RGB lighting all conspire to make you give the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 your gaming heart.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0’s performance is off the charts, and solidifies its price at $459.99 (Amazon). It’s an investment that’s well worth the money and should provide you with unheard of longevity with the 4K gaming capabilities it offers. The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 represents the sweet spot for price punch for enthusiasts and what a sweet spot it is. Every game we tested at 4K was beautiful at ultra settings with no noticeable stutter or lag, and we have to admit it was a chore to play with such a large smile on our faces. It’s with great confidence that we award the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 our Bjorn3D Golden Bear Award.

  1. 2160P(4K) is not a gaming resolution due to current displays being limited to only 60hz atm. The GTX 1070 and even 1080 really excel at 1440P and are stunningly mediocre at 2160P. I feel reviewers should be leading reader to the performance vs visuals sweet spot that is 1440P. I find the “Final thoughts” 4k statement a tad misleading for the less informed reader that could contribute some readers making the mistake of going 4K. There is no doubt 4K is coming probably the next GPU architecture in combination of display port 1.3 and above, but we are not there yet its simply not a great option!.

    Beyond that a good review.

    • Right, because gaming definitely didn’t exist before the invention of high refresh rate LCDs a few years ago.

      • You tried, man. CRT monitors were equal to or better than the response times and refresh rates of the displays we have now. They just consumed a lot more space and power. 🙂
