A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 880M SLI is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 880M SLI get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 433 games in the list.

The GeForce GTX 880M SLI graphics card is returning a strong performance on FIFA 22 at 1080p of 80 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Forza Horizon 5 which we saw got playable frame rates of 30 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 22 FPS under tests.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 880M SLI ran FIFA 22 to a good performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 161 FPS, Medium: 127 FPS, High: 85 FPS and Ultra: 61 FPS. Another game tested was Forza Horizon 5, L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Far Cry 6, which returned L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 880M SLI is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 880M SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 880M SLI in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Based on current gaming requirements the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 187 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire can run Resident Evil 8 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that FIFA 22 returns a good 62 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We discovered the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire ran Resident Evil 8 to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game tested was FIFA 22, L: 124FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Star Citizen, wih estimates revealing L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire running at 1440p is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.
