Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 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 KFA2 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. 204 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition shows us that Days Gone is getting a weak result of 21 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 returning a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Star Citizen which is predicted to get 26 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition ran Battlefield 2042 to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game researched was Star Citizen with predictions of L: 51FPS, M: 40FPS, H: 27FPS, U: 19FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Days Gone, which returned L: 41FPS, M: 33FPS, H: 22FPS, U: 16FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition running at 1440p is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 59% better performance and can run 616 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 680 KFA2 2GB Edition would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 309 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 31% better performance.
