About this deal

Each delivers 2x the performance of previous-generation card, bringing new gaming experiences to virtual reality, and ultra resolution 4k displays. Valley, like Unigine's Heaven, is not a game, but a graphical workout that's a taxing measure of DirectX 11 prowess.

They mention that it runs all graphics card intensive games at 1080p above 60fps, and is absolutely perfect for gaming on max settings. The Asus GTX970 Strix OC is a mean looking card – the artwork is intentionally minimalistic, fitting in with the theme. Now to wait for it to arrive, and for the RMA on the CPU cooler for that PC to go through (an AIO clogging (or at least not transferring heat, but the pump still seems to run) within a year? On paper, the GTX 970 reference is impressive in itself, but ASUS has taken it, given it a sweet speed boost, a very effective cooler, and the awesome feature of requiring just a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

If you haven't given our GTX 980 launch review a quick browse through, check it out first as it goes into many more technical details and discu. It generally runs pretty cool and quiet but the newest titles do tend to tax it more which pushes the temps/noise up more.

Before we get into our benchmarks, it's important to note that we tested this card with its out-of-the-box settings, that is with a base clock speed of 1,088MHz and a top Boost Clock speed of 1,228MHz. Di contro è inferiore il numero di CUDA Core: si passa infatti dai 2048 della GTX 980 a 1664, con un quantitativo di memoria GDDR5 invariato a 4 GB con interfaccia a 256 bit e 224 GB/s di banda passante. As we saw throughout the game tests, ASUS’ Strix GTX 970 outpaces the GTX 780 Ti more often than not.e una DisplayPort, fondamentale se si pensa di abbinare alla scheda video NVIDIA un monitor provvisto di G-SYNC. Now that it's no longer driving me nuts idling at the desktop, this card will likely live a long and productive life.

No fan curve adjustments needed (even if the fan does seem to ramp up to its maximum ~2000rpm rather quickly, it's quiet enough for this not to matter), and the GPU levels out at ~73C running FurMark.
