Bottom Line

Not long ago we were having to pay $1500 for a Titan in order to get this level of performance. A great time to be a PC gamer.

Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal is another Ubisoft game, but running on the latest version of the long-respected Dunia engine that’s been underpinning the series for years now. We tested these GPUs with the game’s free 4K HD texture pack enabled.

The game tends to favor AMD cards at higher resolutions, but as you can see, the GTX 1070 beats out every other graphics card tested with the exception of its big brother, the GTX 1080. Here, the performance gains over the last-gen GTX 970 are a bit more respectable; 41.3 percent at 1080p, 66.6 percent at 1440p, and 73.6 percent at 4K using the Ultra preset.
