EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX Review (08G‑P4‑6573‑KR)

Testing

  • Ashes Of The Singularity
  • Battlefield 4
  • GTA 5

We tested at 1440P and 4K, as with the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 you should have no worries about 1080p.

Ashes Of The Singularity

Ashes

Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

We ran Ashes of the Singularity at 1440p and the EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX popped out a respectable 60.5 FPS.

Moving up to 4K on Ashes of the Singularity the EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming iCX gave us a satisfying 42.1 FPS and delivering all the power you expect from an EVGA video card.

Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4A

Explore a vast range of experiences that allow you to play your way. Be the lone wolf to take control of your own destiny or work together in tight-knit five-man squads to strike as a team. New maps, more vehicles, weapons and destruction allow you to create your own path and play to your strengths. Absolutely nothing compares to the sheer scale and scope of Battlefield 4.

With Ultra high settings at 1080p in Battlefield 4 we got an eye-popping 145.7 FPS.

Swapping up to 1440p and holding the Ultra settings we got 89.4 FPS with the EVGA GTX 1070 smashing through frames per second like a freight train.

Hitting the 4K resolution slowed the GTX 1070 down some but we got more than playable frame rates with rock solid graphics at 43.1 FPS. There’s little like the feeling a video card that can crush all your games and let you enjoy maximum eye candy.

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 has a wide open world design and at 1080p the EVGA card outran all the stolen vehicles giving 148.9 FPS.

GTA 5 at 1440p poses no serious threat to the EVGA GTX 1070 Gaming iCX and the card throttled up to  71.3 FPS as we roared through the open world design.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

  1. Congrats, nice review. I’m waiting for the review of the GTX 1070 FTW 2 to compare if it’s worth paying more for it
