PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB Review

In 2014, PNY released two great graphics cards in the 900 series which are the GTX 980 and the GTX 980. As you would expect, they did make sure that all the best features were incorporated into the two beautiful beasts. In the 970 series, this is where our PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB falls in. Both cards are amazing when it comes to performance but it’s obvious that the 980 series are way ahead of the 970 series. With 4GB of GDDR5 memory, you couldn’t ask for more. Moreover, these cards do offer the best in terms of power efficiency.



What are we talking about gamers? We are basically talking of the best way to get a better performing graphics card for less. AMD is good but their prices are way too high. The PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB will set you back around $250 and the GTX 980 will cost double the amount. However, at this price, you enjoy a base clock of 1051 MHZ which can be boosted to 1178 MHZ. More to it, you will get 1664 CUDA cores and 4Gbs of GDDR 5.At the launch, the GTX 980 was arguably the best graphics card in terms of speed on the market. So let’s see why you should stick to the PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB in place of other cards.



First of all, you will need something that is compatible and the guys at the PNY headquarters had this in mind when creating this beast. The card will allow you to get video output from mini display ports: Mini HDMI and DVI-I. When it comes to features, then expect it to work really well with a GPU boost of 2.0, 3D vision surround, Open CL support, TXAA technology and Cuda technology among others. Its clock speed is believed to work 30% faster than your average graphics card. With windows 7, Vista or 8 and a motherboard that is compatible with PCIe 3.0, then you will be ready to get your game started.



I took some time to analyze user reviews and this is what I got from genuine users. A good number mentioned that the PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB worked very well and was very quiet. Some users mentioned that they did have slight noise but it wasn’t something of a concern.



On overall, most users recommend the PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB because of its cooling effect. Most people mentioned that it runs very cool even when gaming heavily for a long time. One user also mentioned that it produces around 40% of heat as compared to other graphics cards such as the GTX770 but makes it to GTX780’s levels of performance. Many people were impressed by its ability to over clock and its massive memory. Some people mentioned that most demanding games only used up 60% of the memory which is really efficient.



The PNY GTX 970 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 VCGGTX9704XPB can be suited for anyone looking for a good graphics card with above average capabilities. However, anyone looking for top performance should be looking at the GTX 980.

  • The Good :
    Cheap, Above average performance, Very cool
  • The Bad :
    Slightly lower resolution than the GTX 980
Our score:
4.5 / 5
