While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus TUF Gaming OC 6GB 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.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus TUF Gaming OC 6GB get on latest AAA 2021 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 762 games in the list.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Asus TUF Gaming OC 6GB graphics card is returning a playable performance on Resident Evil 8 at 1080p of 40 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Days Gone which we saw got reasonable frame rates of 54 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Dying Light 2, which is predicted to get 35 FPS under tests.

And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, wih estimates revealing L: 70FPS, M: 56FPS, H: 37FPS, U: 27FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 1660 Asus TUF Gaming OC 6GB PC gaming 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.

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
