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

This GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 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.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 379 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 54 FPS, Medium: 43 FPS, High: 29 FPS and Ultra: 21 FPS. We proceeded to look at FIFA 22 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a good 77 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 41 FPS, Medium: 33 FPS, High: 22 FPS and Ultra: 16 FPS. Next we have FIFA 22 running on GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition which gets L: 155FPS, M: 122FPS, H: 82FPS, U: 59FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Resident Evil 8 gets L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition is certainly a viable option for these higher gaming resolutions. Remember that if you suffer some 1440p FPS drops the you can usually tweak modern game graphics settings until you get a near High graphics setting experience with this Graphics card.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition.
