How well can the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 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 478 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 79 FPS, Medium: 62 FPS, High: 42 FPS and Ultra: 30 FPS. We proceeded to look at Horizon: Zero Dawn to see how that compared and predict that it will return a reasonable 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 to predict how the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 60 FPS, Medium: 48 FPS, High: 32 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. Next we looked at Horizon: Zero Dawn which we predict will be playable with a 35 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Assassins Creed: Valhalla that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 16. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition 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 AMP! Omega 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 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 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega 4GB Edition? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, as it can run 853 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 34% increased graphics performance. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB which is 44% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 946 games from the most demanding games today.
