Virtual Reality is upon us with the likes of Oculus Rift already available and HTC Vive coming very soon. Valve have released a SteamVR benchmark which will test your system for VR Readiness, we advice customers to run this benchmark as the minimum specification to be VR Ready is a GTX 970 from camp NVIDIA. VR is a game changer for games such as Elite Dangerous, Portal 3, Flight simulator, Project cars and who knows the elusive Half Life 3 may make an appearance from Valve as being VR optimised, lets keep our fingers crossed.

Maxwell is the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next generation gaming. Inspired by light, it was designed to solve some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing. For the first time, gaming GPU's can dynamically render indirect light using the new VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination technology). Scenes are significantly more lifelike as light interacts more realistically in the game environment.

The GTX 980 is the worlds fastest GPU and the GTX 970 offers the most advanced performance in its class. Each delivers 2x the performance of previous-generation card, bringing new gaming experiences to virtual reality, and ultra resolution 4k displays.

Enable the detail of 4k monitors, on a 1080P display. DSR produces smoother images by rendering a game at a high resolution, then downscaling it to the native resolution of the display using advanced filtering.

GeForce GTX 980 and 970 cards support tear-free, super-fast NVIDIA G-Sync monitor display technology including 4k. Together, these technologies provide the most immersive and competitive gaming experiences possible.

Get VR Ready with GeForce® GTX.
GeForce® GTX graphics cards provide a powerful next-generation platform for the ultimate immersive virtual reality experience. Immersive VR requires seven times the graphics processing power of traditional 3D apps and games. NVIDIA's unique set of features-such as multi-res shading-mean you get the right level of performance, image quality, and latency to ensure your VR experience is nothing short of amazing.

Impressed

I was pleasantly surprised by this card, i was expecting it to be cool and quiet and its surpassed my expectation, i can hardly even hear it under load in games, the highest temperature i have seen it reach is 54c and supper quiet.

The specifications for this card are 1114Mhz and boosting to 1253Mhz, mine actually boosts to 1354Mhz in games and Unigine Heave, Unigine Heave is where i got the highest temperature so far at 54c.
This right out of the box without doing anything to it, thats not to say everyone of them will do that, maybe i got lucky, but, again i can't stress this enough: it is very cool and very quiet.

The shroud is plastic, its not a high quality feel but that's not really that relevant, it sits in the case, not your hand and it does the job.

It would have been nice if it had a backplate.

5 stars easily, the lack of a backplate and the plastic shroud is indicative of its price, functionally its excellent.

And top marks for OcUK service, as always.

Amazing card

Amazing card. Very quiet, great airflow, power draw and temp are decent. Under load the 3 fans get a bit noisy but I don't really mind that and this can be reduced with a good case/sound pads. Not done full tests but out of the box this is a brilliant card that can max nearly all my games. Windforce make good cards (had their 660 GTX before this) and will definitely stick with them.

Witcher 3 Fraps results @ 1920x1080 fullscreen: 50-55fps (post processing HIGH, graphics HIGH), 40-43fps (post processing HIGH, graphics ULTRA). Looks brilliant.

Only one issue with my Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 - after installing the 970 my PC hung on the BIOS screen... I used the @BIOS utility to update the BIOS and everything worked fine. It's also an issue on MSI boards, I think. In any case it's a quick fix and it's not the card that is at fault, it was my mobo. Simple BIOS update does the trick.

Black Friday

Brought one of these on Black Friday offer and the differnce from my old GTX 470oc is unreal Darksiders 2 same as my old 470 but it whispers, im playing Far Cry 4 @mo on Ultras and getting real high FPS.....will say two things about this card
1) When fan hits 66% it sounds like a Harrier Jet
2) The Windforce logo doesnt illuminate....thats the G1 Gaming Edition
