GTX 1070 good for 144fps at 1440p low settings?

Pepsidot
 Share

Hey everyone this is my first post here!

 

I was wondering if a GTX 1070 would be able to run games competitively at 144 fps at the lowest settings?

 

I'll be using it for better graphics in single player games, however I just need to make sure I can get 144 fps, even at the lowest settings on competitive games like Overwatch and Fortnite for example.

 

Sorry, I accidentally posted this I think by pressing Enter? before I finished typing! So I've made a quick edit.

 

Also here are some of my specs:

GTX 1070 

i7 4790k

16GB RAM

What clock speed is your 4790k at? That's not the ideal CPU for 144Hz. I think the graphics card can squeeze out low/medium for your performance target.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

On esports type games you should get over 100. Like mentioned above you maybe be held back a little by your CPU. Pretty much whatever you get on 1080p minus about 20%, since low settings should give a decent boost. If you’re playing games other than esports (anything that’s not LoL, CSGO, OW, etc), then you’ll probably start to see some slow down

Overwatch and Fortnite's most likely fine, maybe not hit 144 but will stay somewhere near it.

"High FPS" depends heavily on your CPU also... the less work on your GPU by lower settings the more work on CPU to keep it updated on what to draw every frame.

 

So you may face games like AC Origins which is Heavily CPU intensive, you can even go 1080p if you want and 144fps may not be reachable in parts of the map regardless what you do.

and what fps he gets? 7400 is also much weaker, considering Haswell to Kaby Lake has hardly gained much IPC if at all the 4790k is just a tad slower than 7700k at the same clocks..

If you overclock a little you would see better results. 4.4GHz on all cores is a decent bump. What cooler and motherboard do you have? Also, what frequency and latency are your ram?

Most epsorts games are made to run relatively easily if you don't have the settings turned all the way up. Also it's a 4th gen i7 so it should be fine.

I want to upgrade, however I am concerned as I have heard that if I was not getting the fps I wanted, downscaling to 1080p on a 1440p looks worse than 1080p is on a 1080p monitor!

Also I forgot to mention that the monitor I was thinking of getting has G-SYNC, which from what I've read is great. Should smoothen the fps drops?

not really. I don't think you will noitce that in frame rate that high though

GSync certainly will help... are you really into high refresh rate though?

 

With your computer I'd rather cheap up and get a LG 29UM68-P which is a fantastic IPS Matte screen with awesome colour accuracy, sRBG 99% and all, 2560x1080p ultrawide, gives a fairly enhanced immersion and feeling on gaming while being great for common usage.

 

Using Display Port you can safely go to a 80hz overclock always, with luck a couple more, which it does help and makes the great panel appealing if you're more into single player games and not just competitive stuff.

 

Do this as a placeholder until you can get even better stuff altogether.

 

Either ways you will be able to get away using a 1070 at 1440p by all means, there is a lot of performance to be made when going easy on the settings and you can do so without losing much quality and eye candy.

 

Watch the video below for relief, just 'replace' 4k60fps to 1440p144hz.

I have the Cooler Master Hyper 212 liquid cooler. My temperatures go to 60-75~ when playing very intensive games or when compressing videos. When compressing videos I often get dangerously close to 80 degrees (which auto shuts down my PC). My motherboard: Maximus VII Ranger. RAM: 16GB 2133 MHz. Not sure about the latency of it.

Yeah, I have a 1080p 144hz right now and I can't stand playing lower than 144fps in competitive games as I found out how good it is when I first got it whilst playing CS:GO. The problem is that I do not really want to upgrade anything EXCEPT the monitor. If I need to upgrade my graphics card, perhaps my liquid cooler and CPU, I'll just stay with my current monitor.

 

Also, thank you everyone with your help so far!

That's an air cooler, not liquid. Although, I bet you can do a 4.5 all core at like 1.18 or 1.2 volts. Should give you good thermals.

I definitely have a liquid cooler, I guess that is the wrong name for the cooler. I had someone 'build' my PC and can't quite remember the liquid coolers name, unfortunately. I know it was cheap for a liquid cooler and from cooler master, as he said I didn't have enough room in my PC for a bigger and better one :/

 

I think it was the Cooler Master Seidon 120V V3

In that case, try a mild overclock. For some reason the 4790k gets really hot at stock, so if you use pretty low voltage it''ll actually perform better and be cooler.

Don’t no what thoes fools are jabbering about at the top saying u might not get 144hz

 

ow low settings 4790k and my 980ti rig sits at locked 300 fps in overwatch 

320 is csgo and I run a mix of high settings for fortnight and get around 180 

mall at 1440p 

 

980ti and 1070 and basically the same

 

a 4790k even at stock 4.4ghz is better single thread than the ryzen line up which is what matters in thoes games 

 

 

4790k is not far behind a 7700k in terms of raw fps at low settings

 

this cpu desurves much more credit

In that case, try a mild overclock. For some reason the 4790k gets really hot at stock, so if you use pretty low voltage it''ll actually perform better and be cooler.

If I do overclock, do you think I should raise my max CPU temp?

That's great to hear! Would you say your fps on low settings is pretty consistently over 144fps? If it dips a bit lower here and there, that's fine.

 

So, it looks like I need to OC my CPU. I've researched this before and know I need to be careful when overclocking. Do you guys recommend any OC guides? Thank you all very much for your help!

I bet you can still keep it below 80

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yes, this is @ProKoN overclocking guide for Haswell CPU's and i've had good success with it...

Could only get 120 max with bo4 and a 4790k 

given a less demanding cpu game, could see close to 144.
