22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2020. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 116 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a playable frame rate when running Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord on Ultra - 31 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Cyberpunk 2077 which is 2 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Doom Eternal performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 24 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord to see how the GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 62 FPS, Medium: 49 FPS, High: 33 FPS and Ultra: 24 FPS.

In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition running at 1440p is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.
