2K res with Geforce 1070?

Anybody here try running a Geforce 1070 (no Ti) with a 2560x1440 monitor? If so, how’s the performance in modern games/sims?

I have a 1070 and I’m running an older monitor at 1680x1050. I’m looking to get a new monitor and was considering getting a 27in 1080p, but it seems kind of behind the times to go with a 1080 res monitor at this point. I’ve looked looked at some modern game benchmarks and it appears a 1070 is starting to get to be at the border of good performance at 2K. I would imagine in another 6 months to a year, it will start to be behind and I would need a new video card. the 20xx series doesn’t seem to be a big jump, considering the pricetag. What are your thoughts? Should i hold firm and see how it plays out? Go with a 1080p monitor and get good fps. Is 2K with high/ultra settings doable with a 1070?

I am running 3440x1440 without too many issues. Most of the issues I run into are games that don’t support the widescreen format and leave me with black bars on the left and right or stretched graphics.

For Arma3 I am noticing a slowdown though, and I think that the 1070 is struggling with the level of detail that I had enabled for my previous 1080 monitor.

My 1070 did quite well at 1440p. You should be OK as long as you don’t expect to run things at max detail and get 60fps.

Now running a 2080 and its way more comfortable at that resolution. Still can’t max out ARMA but that’s just life isn’t it?
