The new EVGA GeForce GTX 970 is powered by the next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features.

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 GPUs 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.

EVGA ACX 2.0
This card features EVGA ACX 2.0 cooling. With optimized Swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, EVGA ACX 2.0 delivers more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU.

Dynamic Super Resolution Technology
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.

Super-Smooth and Stutter-Free
GeForce GTX 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.

From performance to acoustics the FTW delivered in a big way despite being one of the fastest sub-$400 cards currently available.... However, for its target market, the GTX 970 FTW is one of the best solutions currently available.
Overclockers.com

2014/11/01

The EVGA GTX 970 FTW proved to be a great performing card that has many features gaming enthusiasts look for. Low power consumption, excellent cooling from the ACX 2.0, a massive factory applied overclock, and performance that puts it ahead of the AMD R9 290X in most cases all add up to the GTX 970 FTW being a serious contender for your next graphics card purchase.
HEXUS

2014/09/01

Armed with a new ACX 2.0 cooler and clocked to go like the clappers, this is a fine example of how an affordable GTX 970 can be made as quick as a premium GTX 980.
Anandtech

2014/09/01

...at 1440p the GTX 970 averages just 1% faster than the R9 290X... They have undercut AMD with better hardware at a lower price, leaving AMD in a very tenuous position. AMD would have to cut R9 290X’s price by nearly $200 to be performance competitive, and even then they can’t come close to matching NVIDIA’s big edge in power consumption.
