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

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

GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 4GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

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 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 439 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing FIFA 22 getting 81 FPS with the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 4GB Edition, Forza Horizon 5 getting 30 FPS and Resident Evil 8 getting 30 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up FIFA 22 to see how the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 4GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up a good series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 163 FPS, Medium: 129 FPS, High: 86 FPS and Ultra: 62 FPS. Next we looked at Forza Horizon 5 which was weak with a 23 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Resident Evil 8 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 23. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 4GB Edition 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 EVGA Superclocked 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 4GB Edition in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 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 Superclocked 4GB Edition.
