14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI will blast beyond the majority of games requirements at 1080p, so crank up your screen resolution to 1440p or 4K and let the beautiful AAA game visuals wash over you. This is how gaming is meant to be played but you are likely to have to pay top dollar for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI privilege. But if you can get this graphics solution, then its happy gaming. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 961 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Red Dead Redemption 2 and saw it deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 180 FPS, Medium: 141 FPS, High: 95 FPS and Ultra: 68 FPS. We proceeded to look at FIFA 20 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 189 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI ran Red Dead Redemption 2 to a reasonable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 137 FPS, Medium: 108 FPS, High: 73 FPS and Ultra: 52 FPS. Another game tested was FIFA 20, L: 324FPS, M: 270FPS, H: 198FPS, U: 144FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which returned L: 128FPS, M: 101FPS, H: 68FPS, U: 48FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI is probably one of the better high resolution gaming options on the graphics card market.
