How well can the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

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 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 445.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will get 25 FPS with the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition, Dying Light 2 predicted to get 25 FPS and Resident Evil 8 getting 31 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 EVGA Superclocked ACX 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: 50 FPS, Medium: 40 FPS, High: 27 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We then checked the performance on Dying Light 2 to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 19 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition, this is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked ACX 4GB Edition? Then we would suggest getting a 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, as it can run 972 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 62% increased graphics performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 54% better performance and can run 961 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
