Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition Performance Review

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 441 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will get 25 FPS with the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition, Days Gone getting 46 FPS and Forza Horizon 5 getting 30 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 49 FPS, Medium: 39 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We then checked the performance on Days Gone to see if that runs well. It was playable with a 35 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition is a perfectly suitable selection of hardware for theis larger screen size. If a game at 1440p struggles a bit or experiences a frame drop then you can tweak settings in game to help get it stable. This might mean lowering it to medium or low in some specific options.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 970 MSI Armor 2X OC 4GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered
