How well can the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 4GB Edition run games
The GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 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.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 4GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 741.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Ghost Recon Breakpoint and saw it deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 124 FPS, Medium: 98 FPS, High: 66 FPS and Ultra: 47 FPS. We proceeded to look at The Outer Worlds to see how that compared and saw that it returned a reasonable 54 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 4GB Edition at 1440p with Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 95 FPS, Medium: 75 FPS, High: 50 FPS and Ultra: 36 FPS. We then checked out The Outer Worlds which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 108FPS, M: 85FPS, H: 57FPS, U: 41FPS. And another popular game was Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip that returned L: 108FPS, M: 85FPS, H: 57FPS, U: 41FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 4GB Edition is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte XTREME 4GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti EVGA XC Gaming 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 35% better and can meet 923 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 41% better and can run 968 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
