The specs say so but the performance sure as hell screams no. At least on GTA V
Well the 970 SSC 4 GB sure as hell isn't better than the 760 SC 2 GB on GTA V. That's for more than certain. Had to lower the settings significantly just to get the same level of performance. Feel like I just flushed $201 down the drain and worse? I could have gotten a brand new one for $2 less than the used one I bought
...Which never happens as they updated the driver to not use the 2nd partition, It only ever happen once on mordor and they fixed it, yet people can't let it go lol. The card is the best price performance card in the top end you can buy, they've done an incredible job for a card so cheap that would have been so much more expensive, It's pushed the competition too meaning AMD had to release lower prices, so it's win win for us customers, but no lets slag of the card because of one game accessed the slower memory at the beginning of it's life cycle that's beenfixed :S
... until it starts using that last bit of crippled VRAM.
The windforce edition ? :D
@Guest: Let this guy go on talking bs. I calculate his TDP and its over 360W. So a +400W PSU would be good in case of energie Efficiency. Go on Mr. 330W PSU
Incredible card. Just upgraded from gtx760 to gigabyte gtx970 and I wanna make you sweat
its 330, made a small mistake there and almost 4 months , Overclock +220 Core +400 Mem. 24/7 max temps are 74 not one crash , not one single Issue.And when i say not a single issue i mean i play Borderlands at 1620P for more than 5 hours a day, online. Time of Fish Tanks with 1800W PSU's are gone my friend
300W? Thats not something to be proud of, you should constantly be scared out of your mind that pc doesn't blow up in flames.
i7 4770+GTX 970 Reference NVIDIA....YES NVIDIA not evga not pny . First try using Passmark was 85something second was 8449...After playing around with it for few days,ANY game at 1080p will run to the max except Crysis 3 dont know why...Far Cry 4 ULTRA with HBAO+ and Enhanced Lighting,Lowest is 57FPS... Borderlands 2,well still flying but its 1440p and 90% is 60FPS , Borderlands the pre sequel at 1620p 90% with ultra PhysX 60FPS. NFS Rivals 1440p ULTRA SOLID 60FPS. Oh Most Important,IT RUNS ON A 330W PSU on my PC.
This website is a fucking joke, but for some reason it keeps coming up first in the google search.
760 is no match for a 970! 970 comes head to head with 780Ti
970 > 760 in every way, check for some benchmarks on internet, you can also use "GTX 970 on BF4/Farcry4/EveryGameYouWant" on youtube
I'm not too familiar with newer graphics card and I'm looking to buy a machine with either 760 or 970 bundled. Is the 970 better as gpuboss indicates or is there anything else I should know? Quick response would be greatly appriciated as I'd like to buy it tonight. Thank you!
That "GPUBoss is not aware of any important advantages of the 760 vs the 970." really amazed me
