31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 694 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition graphics card is predicted to return a playable performance on Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order at 1080p of 31 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is FIFA 20 which we saw got strong frame rates of 130 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular The Outer Worlds, which was getting 47 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order on the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 61FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 23FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was FIFA 20 which seemed strong in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 99 FPS. Finally we then took a look at The Outer Worlds where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 35 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.
