Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition Performance Review

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 762 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

A GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a playable frame rate when running Grand Theft Auto VI on Ultra - 36 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Dying Light 2 which is 36 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Far Cry 6 performs on this hardware, which gets a playable 35 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI to predict how the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 72 FPS, Medium: 57 FPS, High: 38 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. Next we looked at Dying Light 2 which we predict will be playable with a 27 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Far Cry 6 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 26. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition running at 1440p 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 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which has 40% better performance and can run 975 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 965 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 33% increased graphics performance.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Performance Review

The GeForce GTX 680 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How well will the GeForce GTX 680 run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. This graphics hardware can run 212 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 680 shows us that Forza Horizon 5 is predicted to get a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 predicted to return a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Star Citizen which is predicted to get 26 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Battlefield 2042 on the GeForce GTX 680 and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Star Citizen which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 19 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Forza Horizon 5 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 680 is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 680 then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 625 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 59% better performance as well. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 680 is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which is 31% more powerful and can run 311 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
