In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Zotac AMP! Edition.

The GTX 760 has a 35 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 970, but the GTX 970 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 760. As a result, the GTX 970 exhibits a 5.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 760. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 760 has a 35 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 970, but the GTX 970 has 24 more Render Output Units than the GTX 760. As a result, the GTX 970 exhibits a 24.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 760. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 970 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 760, and so the GTX 970 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 760.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 970 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 760, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 970 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 970 has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 760, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 970 is noticeably better than the GTX 760.

The GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition has 1664 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760 Zotac AMP! Edition has 1152. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 970 is 2732 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1355. The GTX 970 having 1377 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 970 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 760.

The GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760 Zotac AMP! Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 970 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760. The GTX 760 requires 20 Watts more than the GTX 970 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 760 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 970.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 970 4GB created by Zotac. It features a new Cooling Solution and overclocking out of the box. Read below to know more.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit now runs at 1076MHz, instead of 1051MHz. Boost Clock is now of 1216MHz, instead of 1178MHz. The Operating Memory was left untouched.

Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Zotac's Dual Fan Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 970 4GB.
GeForce GTX 760 Zotac AMP! Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX 760.
This edition comes with a custom dual-fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 760 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 980MHz to 1111MHz while its boost clock is now of 1176MHz. The memory clock was also increased to 1552MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 9% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs slightly better than GeForce GTX 670.
