I have a reference 970 with led titan cooler and backplate and it overclocks far past 1060. I bet it could beat a 1060 with mild OC.

gtx 970 in 2019 is an entry level gpu
So basicly Nvidia won.

Been using Gtx 970 for 4 years! I paired it with my old i7 4790 without k.
vBOG (28 days ago)
The difference in FPS between both cards is i'd say 5-10 frames not much of a difference at 1080p. There is a noticeable difference between both cards paired at 1440p with a 2560x1440 monitor. Id say if you are gonna remain on 1080p get a 970 because your only giving up 5-10 frames and your saving like $100. but if your gonna play on a 2k resolution monitor get a 1060 because you got more vram and it wouldn't make sense to play on a 2k monitor with a 970 because it technically only uses 3.5gb of vram.

for me 1050 1060 1070 series are just gimik moded version of gtx970 oc if yo uwnat real power for GTX 1080 x titan or RTX or GTX970 x2 SLI for me 2x GTX 970 4g SLI are equal to 1080p = GTX 1080
NSUB BG (1 month ago)
yup i been using EVGA GTX970 SuperOverclocked for almost 6 years and still no Problems at 1080p and now days is Smother whit the new graphics and if you didint notice GTX970 was the man archetecture for 1000 series two words 970 is much stronger then 10 60 70 but lower then 1080 cuz 1080 uses Xtitan Archetecture

You've got 600MHz extra speed on the 1060....No wonder it's faster.

It's almost like the newer generation of cards is supposed to hit higher clocks.
KING COBRA (1 month ago)
Dude my gtx 970 cant reach this high fps wtf
TymEk (1 month ago)
@KING COBRA clock speed. ( How many times something is done per second; for example most monitors have 60Hz which means that a new frame is show every 1/60th of a second.
KING COBRA (1 month ago)
@TymEk what is MHz. sorry im new to the PC world.
TymEk (1 month ago)
@KING COBRA it may slightly, I doubt it. Maybe it's the ram? How many MHz is it running on?

raul yanez cortes (1 month ago)
So the 1060 performs better than the 970 when at games that almost fully stress the cards. Otherwise they perform about the same. Hmm... Not sure if the price diferences are worth it.

or the new RTX 2060, I'm planning on upgrading to that once I retire my 970.

Random question would a cheap windows 10 pro activation key from Amazon cause your games to crash? Got pretty good specs 8th gens. +aorus 2070 extreme
Koukis Elias (2 months ago)
@Laz boy there is no way windows have an effect, it may be bad drivers or a the gpu/cpu need new thermal paste (it may be due to overheating) or a non stable overclock
Laz boy (2 months ago)
@Koukis Elias it's making my games to crash or close after 5-10mins in game
Koukis Elias (2 months ago)
no activation key does not change the way windows behave, even a non activated version works great

I have the *Gigabyte GTX970 G1* - and sometimes it Really lags on Insurgency - Sandstorm. Not sure if it's the card, or just bad optimization from the developers of the game... :\
SpedKnight (1 month ago)
It's most likely the bad optimization, I have a 970 and I get like 40-50 fps on low settings, I have a good CPU and 16gb DDR4 Ram. I just wish I could've refunded the game :/

Overclock it, and you get a gtx1060 for free
Hesitation (11 days ago)
then u can just overclock the 1060 too and it still wins
grzegzimierz (3 months ago)
Yeah but why is GTX 970 core clock set so low, while 1060 is set to its max? If you OC GTX1060 to its limits, you should do the same with the competitor. 970 could easily do 1500MHz core clock.
trancelistic (3 months ago)
I got them both. Still a great card that 970. Also had a 760 and a 770, they didn't do it for me. Might as well used my old 285 lol.

@Baguette Launcher Was just having a laugh I have a 60hz too
Baguette Launcher (3 months ago)
@Bonswally lol ye, but I have 60hz monitor and ok pc, a bit wooden tho ... so, 144hz is a great improvement already xdd
Bonswally (3 months ago)
They still make 144hz monitors? Unless you're running a 240hz freesync monitor you might as well be blind.

mat fredericks (3 months ago)
I own a GTX970, had upgraded from a R9 270X after 2 years of use in 2014. Since then dozens of new GT series and AMD cards have been released, and is the first time in a long while that I don't feel like upgrading, I feel like the performance increases are ever so slight, and not worth the $500+ price-tag now. I wouldn't mind upgrading, I like having the best hardware, but only if it's a significant improvement. Are there GPUs that are significantly better that aren't just riding on the fact they can operate in 4k?
Shul (3 months ago)
I'm broke and bought desktop with a gtx 660 ... in my opinion a 970 is within my budget and performs just as good as the 1060. My display is only a 60hz so I don't really need that card to be honest... Anyone else gaming with a 660 nowadays???
Dave France (3 months ago)
I upgraded my 660 for the Strix 970 GTX about 3.5 years ago, and never looked back. All my games run sweet, and I was tempted to go fo r the 1080 when it fist came out but decided not to upgrade for the sake of it. now we have the 20 series cards, so if I do need to upgrade, I wil be skipping the whole 10 generation cards. The 660 was a very capable card.
why does the cpu is only at 25% of its usage?

if you have the 970, dont get the 1060, go for one of the rtx, not least
Horn Horn (4 months ago)
I'm getting tired of comments saying that old is gold, just look the comparing video of rtx2060 and 1060, you'll see most people just keep loving their older card, how they work doesn't seem to be matter, people just want to show their beliefs for the old card.

What's the difference? Anyway I still have a gtx 970 for this reason, it still kicks ass even on some of the most demanding PC games to date. But the 1060 6gb is a good card, not noticeably different however.

the 970 is comparable to a 1060 3gb, not the 6gb that you tested.
Тест для малышей. Во первых всё в разгоне по памяти и микропроцессору. Это один. Второе, в среднем - 65 градусов 970 и 60 градусов 1060. Но! При этом кулера у первой работают на полную, конечно этак, что звук будто как будто самолёт взмывает, а у 2-ой тишь. Поэтому естественно 1060 предпочтительней. Так будто у 970 весьма стремительно кулеры выйдут из строя и она просто прогорит. Так что мужчины, этот срачь в комментах ни к чему. 970 тащит однако не длительно.
