GTX 1070 with i3-7100 benchmarks at Low Quality settings

It is clear that the GTX 1070 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the GTX 1070 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX 1070 and Intel Core i3-7100 @ 3.90GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2016 .

The GTX 1080 might be the high-end flagship of the latest Pascal set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most mid-range PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 1070 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 399. The good news is, with the release of the GTX 1070 Ti, the GTX 1070 's price is getting more discount.

NVIDIA ’s xx70 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Pascal graphics card inside the GTX 1070, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The GTX 1070 has 8 GB RAM compared to the GTX 970 's 4 GB video memory.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1070 blows past the GTX 970 and, amazingly, even the GTX 980 as well. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 1070 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 970, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Anthem, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, Gears of War 5, Final Fantasy XV at 64 fps to 79 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 73 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play GreedFall, Hitman 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, F1 2019, World War Z at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

If they are the same price the 1070. If the 1070 is 450 and the 980ti is say 350 get the 980ti. I have a friend that just got a evga gtx 980ti classified for 0 if you can find that take it.

1070 will be quite a bit better and drivers shouldn't be an issue.

Gtx 1070 vs Titan x
Is it true that the gtx 1070 is as good as the titan x?
And would an i5 6600k bottleneck these cards?

At least that's how it is according to nvidia. But until we see independent benchmark take it with grain of salt. remember when amd showing fury x to be significantly ahead than 980ti in most title?
