Aside from the mentioned specifications above and the driver version you see from the GPUZ screenshot, all games were running on 1080p resolution with V-Sync turned off, and graphics quality was at their maximum possible settings.

NOTE: The other graphics cards included in the graphs were not tested at the same time I tested the Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core. They were tested previously using different driver versions or were tested on a different system. I included their data in the graph for reference and comparison only. These cards are the Club 3D R9 285, Asus GTX 780 Poseidon, Asus GTX 780 Ti, and Asus Radeon R9 290.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

    • Hi Jesús. Thanks! Glad you liked the review. The sample we got doesn’t have any coil whine issues. As for VRAM, it depends on the game you are playing. It’s usually just around 3GB, or less. Haven’t tested it on 4K yet.
