Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 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.

How well will the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition run 2022 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 391 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition shows us that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to get a weak result of 22 FPS, and then we are seeing Star Citizen predicted to return a reasonable 51 FPS while another game on our list is the FIFA 22 which is getting 78 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

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 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Star Citizen and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 103 FPS, Medium: 81 FPS, High: 54 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We then checked the performance on FIFA 22 to see if that runs well. It was reasonable with a 59 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition running at 1440p is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Strix OC 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 Asus Strix OC 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 Asus Strix OC 4GB Edition.
