14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 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. 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 AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 687 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 getting 47 FPS with the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition, Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 31 FPS and Borderlands 3 getting 47 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition at 1440p with Red Dead Redemption 2, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 94 FPS, Medium: 74 FPS, High: 50 FPS and Ultra: 35 FPS. We then checked out Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 61FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 23FPS. And another popular game was Borderlands 3 that returned L: 94FPS, M: 74FPS, H: 50FPS, U: 35FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.
