In- Game Benchmarks
Synthetic benchmarks are interesting, but they doesn’t really show how well a card will perform in game and that is why we buy video cards right? To see how the GTX 970 AMP! Omega would perform I benchmarked the card in 9 different modern games to get an idea of the performance you should expect. In each game I benchmarked at both 1080p and 1440p. In all nine games the GTX 970 performed with an average FPS of 60 or higher, in most cases it was well above 60. At 1440p the GTX 970 performed with an average of 60 or higher in four of the nine games. In the other five the performance was a little rougher with them all coming in at over 30 FPS but under 60 FPS. This means that at 1080p you can throw anything you want at the card and you can expect perfect framerates but at 1440p you are going to run into more games that you will need to adjust the settings down from the max settings that we test at if your expectation in 60 FPS or higher. That said, even the lowest performing games are still considered playable with results over 30 FPS.
