Is your PC ready for the future of gaming? Discover how NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 970 and above graphic cards take gaming to the next level.
As a PC gamer, you’re a breed apart. You take your play seriously. You spend precious time and money upgrading and tweaking your rig because you want to experience games at their ultimate best, with no compromises. Which is why you need a new GeForce GTX 900-series graphics card in your life.

NVIDIA’s latest graphics tech doesn’t just evolve your gaming experience, it revolutionises it, giving you access to features that were once considered the fever dreams of madmen.
Forget puny 1920x1080 HD resolutions (something that the so-called ‘next-gen’ consoles still struggle to achieve with any sort of consistency): a new GeForce GTX card is your gateway to luscious, eye-fondling 4K resolutions – that’s an incredible 3840 pixels across by 2160 pixels high – with all settings cranked up to ultra. Trust us, once you’ve seen Grand Theft Auto V cranked up to maximum settings, you won’t ever be able to go back.
Alongside the launch of Windows 10 comes the much-anticipated DirectX 12, which promises to do for PC graphics what fire did for cavemen.
If you’ve got your eyes on (or should that be ‘in’?) a new VR headset like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, then a new GeForce GTX card is essential. VR demands that the two screens (one for each eye) refresh at a blistering 90 frames per second – fortunately that’s a task that the powerful new GeForce GTX cards (Oculus recommends you have a 970 series GPU and above) can handle without breaking a single bead of virtual sweat.
On top of that you get instant access to NVIDIA’s GameWorks VR. This offers manufacturers and developers a whole suite of software tech that helps make your virtual ride is as smooth as possible by significantly reducing latency (i.e. the lag between your movements or actions and the screen updating to reflect them – essential to prevent eye strain and nausea) and dramatically accelerating the rendering process at every step.
And of course, like all GeForce cards, the new GTX 900-series come with NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience software as standard. GeForce Experience ensures your drivers are kept up to date and provides recommended graphic settings for all the hottest titles that you can apply with a single mouse click. What truly makes GeForce Experience unique is ShadowPlay, which allows you to share your greatest gaming triumphs with the entire world.
Indeed, GeForce Experience is emblematic of the NVIDIA approach as a whole – creating innovative hardware and software that’s insanely powerful yet ridiculously simple to use, so you can be confident you’re enjoying your games at the very highest performance levels.
