Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970M 3GB, Core i7-6700HQ 4-Core 2.6GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-6700HQ 4-Core 2.6GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 970M 3GB graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 176 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 970M 3GB as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 428 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 970M 3GB should only play Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 970M 3GB fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

3rd most popular game: Doom Eternal - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Doom Eternal in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 970M 3GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 78 FPS, Medium setting: 61 FPS, High setting: 41 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.
