Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition Performance Review

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How well will the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 193 games in todays list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition shows us that Resident Evil 8 is getting a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Star Citizen predicted to return a weak 23 FPS while another game on our list is the Back 4 Blood which is getting 27 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Citizen on the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 46FPS, M: 36FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Back 4 Blood which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 21 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Resident Evil 8 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition running at 1440p is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition in your PC?

Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 Performance Review

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690 is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 690 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 450 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 690 shows us that Star Citizen is predicted to get a reasonable result of 51 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 predicted to return a weak 15 FPS while another game on our list is the Resident Evil 8 which is getting 32 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 690 by researching Battlefield 2042 leading us to predict a weak performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 29FPS, M: 23FPS, H: 15FPS, U: 11FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Resident Evil 8 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 24 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Star Citizen which is predicted to get playable results with a 39FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 690 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.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 690 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 690 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered
