First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 137 FPS, Medium: 108 FPS, High: 73 FPS and Ultra: 52 FPS. We proceeded to look at Grand Theft Auto VI to see how that compared and predict that it will return a reasonable 48 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 predict the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI will run the upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077 to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 105 FPS, Medium: 82 FPS, High: 56 FPS and Ultra: 40 FPS. Another game researched was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 97FPS, M: 76FPS, H: 51FPS, U: 37FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Microsoft Flight Simulator, wih estimates revealing L: 154FPS, M: 121FPS, H: 82FPS, U: 58FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition SLI is a good choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.
