How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 347 games in todays list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition is running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 21 frames per second. Comparing this to The Outer Worlds which is getting playable results, where it averages 26 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Need For Speed Heat, which is running at 26 frames per second.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 41 FPS, Medium: 33 FPS, High: 22 FPS and Ultra: 16 FPS. We added The Outer Worlds to our tests and saw it was weak with a 19 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Need For Speed Heat which got 19 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition PC gaming is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

This GeForce GTX 680 Zotac AMP Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered
