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

GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2022. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition is running FIFA 22 and delivering reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 59 frames per second. Comparing this to Back 4 Blood which is getting playable results, where it averages 35 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Dying Light 2, which is predicted to run at 0 frames per second.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at FIFA 22 and saw it deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 119 FPS, Medium: 94 FPS, High: 63 FPS and Ultra: 45 FPS.

But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.
