Features: For high-resolution gaming and graphics rendering EVGA's GeForce GTX 970 Gaming Graphics Card is built on a processing core which operates from 1050 to 1178 MHz. The GTX 970 chipset features 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. Another benefit of Maxwell architecture is energy efficiency.
