10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed
Based on current gaming requirements the Tesla K20X is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.
This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.
How well will the Tesla K20X run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 155 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.
The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Tesla K20X shows us that Resident Evil 8 is getting 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 19 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.
Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Tesla K20X at 1440p and researched how Battlefield 2042 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Star Citizen which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 37FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And another popular game was Resident Evil 8 that returned L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Tesla K20X is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.How many years will the Tesla K20X graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Tesla K20X in your PC?
There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the Tesla K20X is part of your PC gaming machine. Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Tesla K20X?
