Will a gtx 1070 strix (from asus, overclocked to around 1800) be able to run two 27'' 1440p monitors? And will it be able to run high settings?

while im not sure why you would want to run dual monitor gaming (ther bezel will be right in the middle of the screen for FPS games, so aiming would ultra suck, and for RTS/MOBA/Strategy games, you will lose some continuity of the field, which i find super distracting.

 

That said.  Depending on the game, yes.

 

For reference, i ran tripe 1080P on my 1070 playing the division at max settings.  Got about 45 - 60 FPS most of the time.  that equates to 75% of the load 4K would put on it.

Now just to clarify things, a GTX 1070 can drive up to 4 displays, however if you want to play a game on x2 2560x1440p monitors at the same time, then we're talking about literally the Double of pixels meaning your fps should somewhat decrease by half doing so.

 

With this in mind it depends the game but graphically demanding games will be too much for a single GTX 1070 to handle at high settings.

are you gaming on both screens or only 1?

I have a 1070, and 3x 27" 1440p screens, I only game on one though.
