The GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2022. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 238 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

The GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Battlefield 2042 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Back 4 Blood which we saw got playable frame rates of 34 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Resident Evil 8, which was getting 3 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Battlefield 2042 to see how the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 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 Back 4 Blood which was playable with a 26 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Resident Evil 8 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 2.

This GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 50% better performance and can run 616 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
