NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Video Card Review


Grand Theft Auto V


Grand Theft Auto V, currently one of the hottest PC games, was finally released for the PC on April 14, 2015. Developed by Rockstar, it is set in 2013 and the city of Los Santos. It utilizes the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) which Rockstar has been using since 2006, with multiple updates for technology improvements.



In Grand Theft Auto V we set the game to run with no MSAA with 16x AF and high image quality settings as we didn’t want the GPU to bottleneck the system too bad, but wanted a setup that your average gamer would actually play on. We used the games built-in benchmark utility to have at least one game we used that could be compared to your setup at home. We averaged all the five of the default benchmark runs and omitted the maximum values as those results are garbage for some reason.

1440P Benchmark Results: After running the games built-in benchmark and averaging the runs together, we found that the GeForce GTX 1070 FE shined quite well, showing 2.5 FPS slower on average than the Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti. The 1070 FE is still showing up the EVGA GTX 970 Hybrid Gaming card by 48%!

4K Ultra HD Benchmark Results: Though with a decently lower minimum framerate, the GeForce GTX 1070 FE was only 2 FPS slower on average than the Zotac GTX 980 Ti when we ran the benchmark at 4K settings.
