Kicking things off with 3DMark Fire Strike at 1080p, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition puts out a good effort, with it being just barely behind the overclocked GTX 980 from MSI. At 1440p on the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, the ZOTAC card is again not that far behind the reference GTX 980 and overclocked GTX 980 from MSI.

 

Pushing things up to 4K with the Fire Strike Ultra benchmark, the ZOTAC card positions itself identically once again - just behind the reference GTX 980 and overclocked GTX 980 from MSI. Heaven is a harsh benchmark, with it something we keep all of the details cranked up on at all resolutions tested. Starting at 1920x1080, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition finds itself capable of 86FPS, just behind the 88FPS of the reference GTX 980 from NVIDIA.

 

At 1440p, the ZOTAC card manages 51FPS, which is 5FPS (or 10%) slower than the reference GTX 980 from NVIDIA. At 4K, things are the same, with 21FPS average, compared to the reference GTX 980 with 24FPS, and the overclocked GTX 980 from MSI with 24FPS, too.
