The GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB 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.
We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2023 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 232 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.
The GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Dying Light 2 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Star Citizen which we predict will get playable frame rates of 35 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Days Gone, which was getting 27 FPS under tests.
Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Dying Light 2 to see how the GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Star Citizen which we predict will be playable with a 27 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Days Gone that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 20. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB Edition 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 680 EXO 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 EXO 2GB Edition in your PC?
