EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING ACX 3.0

I originally bought the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 back in 2017 for my Ethereum Mining Hardware. The reason I choose this card was because it would provide optimal ROI. The plan was to start out with a single GPU to get things working. I would then upgrade to 6 GPUs. The mining rig did work but I never increased the number of GPUs. I ended up scrapping the project and put my 1070 in the closet.

I’ve dug this card out of my closet and I’m planning to add it to my Linux workstation. At least that is the plan at the moment. You can find the page for that build here: PC Build 2019 - i7-9700k - Ubuntu Linux.

Questions

How much is a EVGA 1070?

As of today ( January 3, 2022 ), this card is going for more than double what I originally paid for it back in September 2017 ( 5 years ago ).

You can check the price on Amazon HERE (affiliate link).

When did the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 come out?

Is EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 good for gaming?

Yes, it WAS good and it still IS pretty reasonably good considering its age. This card is still pretty expensive. It has actually gone up in price since I first bought it.

Is the GTX 1070 still good in 2021/2022?

This card is still good. It is also more expensive than when it first came out. It isn’t the best and it won’t be able to handle the newest games at the highest settings with good frame rates.

What resolution can GTX 1070 run?

This card is supposed to be able to handle 7680x4320 at 60Hz.

Can a GTX 1070 run Cyberpunk 2077?

Yes, apparently you can and it works relatively well. You can run Cyberpunk 2077 1440p on a GTX 1070. It may not necessarily be at the highest frame rate though.

Can a GTX 1070 run 4k?

Yes, you can run games at 4K on a GTX 1070. The framerates won’t be very good. If you want to run games at 4k you will probably want at least a 1080.
