Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions.

Comparing this to FIFA 22 which is predicted to get good results, where it averages 60 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Resident Evil 8, which is running at 5 frames per second.
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 680 EX OC 4GB Edition will run the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game researched was FIFA 22 with predictions of L: 120FPS, M: 94FPS, H: 64FPS, U: 45FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Resident Evil 8, which returned L: 10FPS, M: 8FPS, H: 5FPS, U: 4FPS at 1440p.
