Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition Performance Review

This GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 395 games in the list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Forza Horizon 5 with 29 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Far Cry 6 which returns a weak 22 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Resident Evil 8 which we saw getting a playable 29 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition by playing Forza Horizon 5 which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 57FPS, M: 45FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 22FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Far Cry 6 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 17 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Resident Evil 8 which gets weak results with a 22FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition PC gaming is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card
