How well can the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB 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. The GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 343 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order with 6 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to return a weak 6 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Borderlands 3 which we saw getting a playable 28 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 12 FPS, Medium: 10 FPS, High: 6 FPS and Ultra: 5 FPS. Next we have Cyberpunk 2077 running on GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB which is predicted to get L: 12FPS, M: 10FPS, H: 6FPS, U: 5FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Borderlands 3 gets L: 55FPS, M: 44FPS, H: 29FPS, U: 21FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB in your PC? This GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which is 113% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 982 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB which is 32% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 607 games from the most demanding games today.
