Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q Performance Review

This GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

How well will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q run 2022 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 366 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Grand Theft Auto VI with 20 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Resident Evil 8 which returns a playable 26 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Dying Light 2 which we saw getting a weak 20 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q will run the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 39 FPS, Medium: 31 FPS, High: 21 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. Another game tested was Resident Evil 8, L: 51FPS, M: 40FPS, H: 27FPS, U: 19FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, which returned L: 39FPS, M: 31FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q running at 1440p is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q in your PC? This GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q as this is better than 810 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 50% better performance as well.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI Performance Review

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI graphics card, when running 2022 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 805 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI is running Dying Light 2 and delivering reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 45 frames per second. Comparing this to Resident Evil 8 which is getting reasonable results, where it averages 49 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Far Cry 6, which is running at 44 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Dying Light 2 which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 91 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. Next we have Resident Evil 8 running on GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI which gets L: 99FPS, M: 78FPS, H: 52FPS, U: 37FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 88FPS, M: 69FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 980M 8GB 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 980M 8GB SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI 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 980M 8GB SLI? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI.
