10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2022. The GeForce GTX 970 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 434 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Grand Theft Auto VI with 24 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Dying Light 2 which returns a weak 24 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Resident Evil 8 which we saw getting a playable 30 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 47 FPS, Medium: 37 FPS, High: 25 FPS and Ultra: 18 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on GeForce GTX 970 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition which gets L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Resident Evil 8 gets L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Asus Turbo OC 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 Asus Turbo OC 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 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition.
