10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 239.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Dying Light 2 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition at 1440p with Far Cry 6, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Dying Light 2 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition, this is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition? Then we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB, as it can run 726 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 53% increased graphics performance. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 680 EVGA SC Signature+ Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which is 22% more powerful and can run 305 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
