10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 747 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is running Days Gone and delivering reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 51 frames per second. Comparing this to FIFA 22 which is predicted to get strong results, where it averages 89 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Far Cry 6, which is predicted to run at 30 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Days Gone which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 103 FPS, Medium: 81 FPS, High: 54 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. Next we have FIFA 22 running on GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI which is predicted to get L: 179FPS, M: 141FPS, H: 95FPS, U: 68FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 is predicted to get L: 60FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is a solution of four GeForce GTX 680 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 680 to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to around 115% better than a single GeForce GTX 680 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 680. Expect this combination to draw up to 780 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
