How well can the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 687 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Cyberpunk 2077 with 31 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which returns a playable 43 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular FIFA 20 which we saw getting a strong 130 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 to predict how the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 61 FPS, Medium: 48 FPS, High: 33 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. Next we looked at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which was playable with a 33 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at FIFA 20 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 99. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition, this is a solid choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which is 35% more powerful and can run 901 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB which is 42% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 962 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 970 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 970 4GB created by Palit. 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 1152MHz, instead of 1051MHz. Boost Clock is now of 1304MHz, instead of 1178MHz. Memory Clock was left untouched. This means the Card performs better when compared to the reference NVIDIA Graphics Card but should also consume slightly more power.

I love this beast. Of course it is steadily cool under water and has a permanent boost of 1304Mhz. I will see how far I can take it. 1,5Ghz should easily be possible if the chip is a decent one.

unfortunately it was a flash sale. It doesn't matter to me, I am still gonna hold off from upgrading for now. AMD's next installment is just around the corner, and I want to see what HBM is about when in action.
