Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Omega Core Edition Graphics Card Review


Tomb Raider (2013)

The most recent iteration of Crystal Dynamic’s long-running series, Tomb Raider represents one of the best-looking titles on PC to date. Its varied landscapes and beautiful organic environments create a quite graphically demanding title.

We test this game on “Ultimate” with TressFX and FXAA at both 1080p and 1440p.




As we can see above, our Zotac 970 AMP! has no issues running this game at well above 60FPS at both 1080p, and 1440p. Our overclocked configuration does seem to return about what we’d expect, with an increase of about 6-7%. –  Not bad!

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

The latest version of the long-running Call of Duity franchise, and the first to be developed by Sledehammer Games, Advanced Warfare brings a fresh spin on an old formula, some very nice visuals along with it.

We test with all settings maxed out, Caching, Shader Preloading, and Super Sampling disabled, at both 1080p and 1440p





In this test we can see the Zotac card is able to absolutely demolish Call of Duty, with frame-rates averaging over 120 FPS even at 1440p! This is definitely a good sign for anyone looking to play competitive shooters with high-end gaming monitors like the ASUS ROG Swift.

Crysis 3

Crytek’s final installment in the Crysis trilogy is easily their most graphically ambitious release, and even though it is now a few years old, it still represents the bleeding-edge in graphical fidelity.

We test on “High” with FXAA at both 1080p and 1440p





Its amazing when we think about the fact that just a few years ago it was nigh impossible to run Crysis 3 at 120 FPS on a single GPU, and now we’ve got our Zotac GTX 970, which is by no means an ultra high-end graphics card, doing it without breaking a sweat, and even deliveirng a smooth experience at 1440p, averaging well above 60 FPS.

After showing off their new Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti Series in Taipai, we were too excited to upgrade the aging GTX 680 in one of our test benches. Thanks to Zotac, we lucked out and today we are looking at the Zotac GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Omega Core Edition Graphics Card. WHY DO I WANT A GRAPHICS CARD?
