GeForce GTX 960M 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960M 4GB is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first variant of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-N16P-GX-A1 which has 5 SM activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1097MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 1253MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU.


Features
DirectX 12 Support (11.2 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it may be equipped in average sized notebooks.


Performance
GeForce GTX 960M 4GB is essentially a higher-clocked GeForce GTX 860M 4GB. Because of that, it is only slightly faster than its predecessor.
Its performance is almost identical to the desktop GeForce GTX 750 Ti and so all modern demanding games are expected to run fluently at 1920x1080, but not at the highest settings.


System Suggestions
We recommend a strong processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce GTX 960M 4GB.

If I overclocked this gpu by 135mhz core and 1000mhz memory what percent overclock is that?

Core overclock is limited to +135 MHz and memory +1000 MHz. Best stable frequency I found is core +135 and memory +450. Anything higher than +500 on the memory starts to cause graphical glitches.

I have to disagree with the belief that 4 GB on mobile graphics card is exaggerated. In GTA V my VRAM usage almost never goes under 3 GB, usualy 3.5 GB is used. Take it as an advice, if anyone is considering buying a laptop with this, or with the 2 GB variant :-)

hello bro. How do you overclock this gpu? What it is the most and safe MHz I can get with overclocking. It is necesary to overclock the memory too? Which program to use for it? Thank you.

You just have to download MSI afterburner. Maximum safe frequency depends on your laptop's cooling solution. On my inspiron 7559 temp with overclock doesn't go higher than 75°C, so I can go as high as Nvidia allowed me to :) core overclock is limited to +135 mhz, which does run fine. The memory is best around +450 mhz for me, higher MHz causes texturing issues. Watch some tutorial on overclocking. And watch the temps, I'd suggest do not let it hit 80°C :)

Libovec.. I am with you, that BUS type isnt exaggerated to 2GB Vram.. Mine uses 3,5GB in Ghost Recon Wildlands and is smooth as hell. Since I used 64bit GeForce 840M previously that had that 1GB Vram bottleneck on 2GB card

Me TOOO! I got the same computer. It's a FANTASTIC card. So happy. 15 7559 screen is not so good anyways. So i got an LG screen to replace it (LG Philips LP156WF6-SPB1). According to Notebookreview it's the 3rd best screen they have ever used :)
