How well can the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition run games
13 Aug 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 719 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition graphics card is returning a strong performance on FIFA 20 at 1080p of 130 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is the The Outer Worlds which we saw got reasonable frame rates of 47 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip, which was getting 53 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran FIFA 20 on the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition to see that it got a strong set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 224FPS, M: 186FPS, H: 137FPS, U: 99FPS. Other popular game to test at 1440p with this card was The Outer Worlds which seemed strong in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 35 FPS. And then took a look at Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were strong at 40FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition is a very good hardware option at these screen sizes. Ultra is easily achieved across almost all games at 1440p and we would suggest an increase of screen size up to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970 Gainward Phantom Phoenix 4GB Edition? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 36% better and can run 918 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, as it can run 966 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 42% increased graphics performance.
