How well can the GeForce GTX 970 Point of View 4GB Edition run games
7 Mar 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 970 Point of View 4GB Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 970 Point of View 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 2021. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 143 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Hitman 3 with 27 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Far Cry 6 which is predicted to return a weak 11 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Outriders which we predict will get a playable 44 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Hitman 3 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 53 FPS, Medium: 42 FPS, High: 28 FPS and Ultra: 20 FPS. Next we have Far Cry 6 running on GeForce GTX 970 Point of View 4GB Edition which is predicted to get L: 21FPS, M: 17FPS, H: 11FPS, U: 8FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Outriders is predicted to get L: 88FPS, M: 69FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 970 Point of View 4GB Edition is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.
