Boasting 4GB of vRAM and an 1178 MHz base clock speed boostable up to 1329 MHz, Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 970 Gaming Graphics Card can output 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution video. With that resolution you can drive one 4K display or use NVIDIA's Surround and take advantage of multiple outputs for an immersive gaming experience. Using any of the three DisplayPort ports, HDMI, or DVI outputs, you can display your game on up to three 2K (2048 x 1080) displays at once. You can also output to one more 2K monitor for auxiliary tasks.
The GeForce GTX 970 Gaming graphics card has 4GB of GDDR5 vRAM coupled to 1664 CUDA GPU cores. The cores are arranged using NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture for efficient operation. Graphics intensive programs can utilize the Maxwell architecture's parallel configuration of the CUDA cores to speed up render times and other tasks that benefit from parallel processing.
This card features Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 3X cooling system. The cooling system uses three large fans with swept blades to whisk away hot air and lower the GPU's internal temperature. Included with this card is Gigabyte's OC GURU II software for updating graphics drivers and controlling the card's internal parameters like GPU clock, vRAM clock, and fan speed.
NVIDIA Gaming Performance Technology
Dynamic Super Resolution: Renders games at a higher resolution than your monitor and scales them down to the native resolution of your display for better detail rendering.
Multi-Frame Anti-Aliasing (MFAA): Delivers a performance boost while maintaining smooth, high-quality edges by alternating sample calculations across each frame and each pixel.
Adaptive Vertical Sync: Controls vertical sync based on your current frame rates for a smoother gaming experience.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0
Maximizes clock speeds based on workload. Also allows control over temperature, fan speed, extra over-voltage headroom, and optimizations for water-cooling solutions.
With a single card you can expand your PC games across three displays in stereoscopic 3D for an "inside the game" experience. Add in a fourth accessory display to get access to your email, web, and other applications.
NVIDIA SLI technology implements AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering) this uses multiple graphics cards to split the computing load. This improves scaling for anti-aliasing, as well as frame rates.
NVIDIA CUDA Technology
Take advantage of the GPU's processor cores to accelerate demanding tasks such as video transcoding, physics simulation, and ray tracing. Utilizing GPU processors for these tasks results in performance improvements over traditional CPUs. The GTX 970 supports DirectX 12, OpenCL, and OpenGL 4.4 allowing compatible software to benefit from GPU acceleration, taking much of the processing workload off of the CPU
