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

This GeForce GTX 970 Palit 4GB Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 970 Palit 4GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen 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 379 games in the list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 970 Palit 4GB Edition can run Back 4 Blood at 1080p and saw it return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 132 FPS, Medium: 104 FPS, High: 70 FPS and Ultra: 50 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Star Citizen is predicted to return a reasonable 50 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 970 Palit 4GB Edition ran Back 4 Blood to a playable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 101 FPS, Medium: 79 FPS, High: 53 FPS and Ultra: 38 FPS. Another game researched was Star Citizen with predictions of L: 101FPS, M: 79FPS, H: 53FPS, U: 38FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Forza Horizon 5, which returned L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 970 Palit 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 Palit 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Palit 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 Palit 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 Palit 4GB Edition.
