Summary performance

Overall the Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Edition manages to almost catch the eVGA GTX 780Ti in most games and finally succeeding in the new game Shadows of Mordor where it not only has much better tolerance against dips in the framerate (higher lowest framerate) but also an overall better average framerate.

The card also uses less power than the 780Ti, at least when we are gaming.
