In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac AMP! are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB.

The GTX 1070 has a 557 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 970. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 83.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1070 has a 557 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 970. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 44 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1070 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 970, and so the GTX 1070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 970.

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 1070 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 970, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1070 has 31.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 970, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1070 is noticeably better than the GTX 970.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac AMP! has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 970 4GB has 1664. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4658 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 970 is 2646. The GTX 1070 having 2012 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 970.

The GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 970. This means that the GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 970.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Zotac AMP! requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 970 4GB requires 145 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 970. The GTX 1070 requires 75 Watts more than the GTX 970 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 970.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GTX 1070 AMP! is a Special Edition GTX 1070 high end graphics card by Zotac based on the Nvidia Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P104-200-A1, which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 15 SM activated, offering 1920 shader processing units, 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The AMP! central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1797MHz, under the Boost Mode, higher than the reference card.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 200W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The AMP! Extreme GTX 1070 by Zotac has a high end performance rating. It can meet 2016 AAA system requirements comfortably, gaming at high graphics settings across all games. This GPU will deliver strong frame rates at 1080p on any game at high graphics levels.

System Suggestions
This graphics card benchmark performance is best suited to resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 970 4GB is a high-end Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture. Its relatively low release price and mind-blowing performance made it an extremely competitive product. Read below to know more.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds the VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) Technology which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA Technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-A1 which has 13 SM activated and thus offers 1664 Shader Processing Units, 104 TMUs and 56 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1050MHz and goes up to 1178MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, MFAA, VXGI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 770. The Card is known to run cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 95ÂșC.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 145W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Release Price
Pricing is lower than the one seen on its predecessors - $329.99 and makes it an extremely competitive product.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 970 4GB is over 25% faster than its predecessor and even beats GeForce GTX 780 in about 10%.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 970 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
