10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

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

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 451 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition is predicted to run Grand Theft Auto VI with playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 27 frames per second. Comparing this to Resident Evil 8 which is getting playable results, where it averages 32 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Dying Light 2, which is predicted to run at 27 frames per second.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition will run the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 53 FPS, Medium: 42 FPS, High: 28 FPS and Ultra: 20 FPS. Another game tested was Resident Evil 8, L: 64FPS, M: 51FPS, H: 34FPS, U: 24FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, wih estimates revealing L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition we get the impression that it is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

This GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 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 FTW+ ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which has 59% better performance and can run 976 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB.
