A great card
30 September 2017
Firstly, this card (gtx 1070 ftw) looks and feels amazing. It looks stunning in fact, heavy and well engineered... The back plate finished that premium product quality feel to it. Pity you have to put it into A pc to actually benefit from it. It was a great unboxing experience too hahaha.
I upgraded from a 970 and im still only playing at 1080p but can increase everything on the games I play. Gta 5 8x msaa anyone... Battlefield 1 ultra and 140 scaling 100 125 fps. It's silent, I run some bench and stress tests and it peaked to 70 degrees after half an hour of furmark and it was still so quiet, the fan sitting at around 70%. When you turn the fan to 100 it is quite loud, but I don't think you need a fan profile that extreme. I don't think the fans even kick in until at least 55 degrees.
This is in a quite oldie but good system. I7 2600k and 16 gig of ram, ssd and a half decent gigabyte motherboard.
Im made up with this purchase, great card and played pubg today and had naff all stuttering unlike the 970. Although that 970 played the game flawlessly it did have hiccups every here and there. This seems to just breeze it.
