The reference design has 1,664 CUDA cores running at 1,050MHz, boosting up to 1,178MHz when thermal limits allow. The 4GB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1,750MHz, operating on a 256-bit memory bus. The underlying GM204 GPU core has much in common with the GTX 980, except here it consumes less power as part of the chip is disabled. As with other cards that use the Maxwell architecture, the GTX 970 is surprisingly power-efficient, only drawing 145W when playing the most demanding games.

As a result, the video memory is split between a high-performance segment containing 3.5GB and a low-performance segment with the remaining 512MB. The low-performance segment is significantly slower to access than the high-performance segment, hampering performance.

In practical terms, however, applications see the full 4GB of RAM and the video driver balances out the load. Only after the first 3.5GB is requested, to fill up the entire high performance segment, will the 512MB segment get used. At this point, Nvidia’s video driver attempts to put the least important data in the slower segment. Although the final 512MB is much slower than the high-performance segment, it is still fast enough for the graphics card to use it rather than rely on swapping data with system RAM. The Asus GTX 970 DC Mini is designed specifically for Mini-ITX gaming PCs and home theatre systems, and Asus has managed to reduce the length of the card to just 170mm. The single fan might have to work a little harder, and make slightly more noise than cards such as the Asus STRIX GTX 970, but scores of 118.2fps in Dirt Showdown, 77.3fps in Tomb Raider and 44.8fps in Metro: Last Light suggest this card would be overkill for a 1,920×1,080 display. As with the other GTX 970 cards, gaming at 2,560×1,440 is possible in the most demanding titles at sky-high detail levels, and 3,840×2,160 gaming is on the cards if you reduce detail levels slightly.
