While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition is predicted to run Diablo 4 with playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 27 frames per second. Comparing this to Red Dead Redemption 2 which is getting playable results, where it averages 44 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is FIFA 20, which is running at 123 frames per second.
