Oh man I should have done this ages ago, the week I was doing this I went on holiday and I got pretty distracted and entirely forgot, I'll try and get this done during this month hopefully.Warning: W.I.P (Click to show)
EuroGamer: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 review
Performed using the 344.75 driver.
Using the 347.09 driver I've noticed that performance is improved within Tomb Raider, however I'm using the 344.74 driver so the performance isn't different from EuroGamer's own tests.
GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970
After experimenting with overclocking and looking at various other reviews I've found out how to match GTX 980 performance with a GTX 970.
EuroGamer were able to push their GTX 970 over GTX 980 performance thanks to their higher memory clocks which I was unable to achieve as I haven't been able to clock my memory to 8GHz.
In these tests I'll be using two resolutions, 1080p and 1440p(and 2160p for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor as I was unable to select 1440p), the aim is to match stock GTX 980 performance under both 1080p and 1440p.
To attain this a GTX 970 will need to have both decent clocking memory and core, I am doing this on stock voltage and stock bios, however those who wish to replicate this may be unable to reach the clocks I do as every card is different and no overclock is guaranteed.
"What if I can't overclock to GTX 980 performance?"
Don't worry if you can't, just OC your card to what you are happy with or simply don't at all, at stock these cards are really powerful anyway.EuroGamer: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 review
