Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Extreme 4GB Edition, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 649 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Extreme 4GB Edition graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Extreme 4GB Edition as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 695 games of our most demanding games list.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Extreme 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 48 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 96 FPS or the Medium returning 75 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 51 FPS and then Ultra gets 36 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Doom Eternal - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Extreme 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 54 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Doom Eternal then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 109 FPS or the Medium returning 86 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 58 FPS and then Ultra gets 41 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Extreme 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 84 FPS, Medium setting: 67 FPS, High setting: 45 FPS, Ultra setting: 32 FPS.
