A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 447 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Battlefield 2042 and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 66 FPS, Medium: 52 FPS, High: 35 FPS and Ultra: 25 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 31 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p.

We added Resident Evil 8 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 23 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Dying Light 2 leading us to predict 19 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition, this is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.
