Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB Performance Review

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 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.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 762 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 90 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 40 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

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 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB ran Far Cry 6 to a playable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 68 FPS, Medium: 54 FPS, High: 36 FPS and Ultra: 26 FPS. Another game tested was Resident Evil 8, L: 81FPS, M: 63FPS, H: 43FPS, U: 31FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Back 4 Blood, which returned L: 124FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB 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 1660 EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 6GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. This PC hardware upgrade performs 40% better and can run 975 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. 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.
