NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q

The GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in June 2017. This GPU is average at gaming with a score of 21% in our PC benchmark.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q has 8 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 250 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q GPU core runs at a frequency of 1379 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1379 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q supports up to DirectX 12.1. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 90 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
