The GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.
Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.
Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 241 games in todays list.
The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition shows us that FIFA 22 is predicted to get a reasonable result of 57 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 predicted to return a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Back 4 Blood which is predicted to get 33 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.
Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Battlefield 2042 on the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition 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 Back 4 Blood which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 25 FPS. Finally we then took a look at FIFA 22 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 43 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC Edition in your PC?
