How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 220 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition shows us that Forza Horizon 5 is getting a weak result of 1 FPS, and then we are seeing Dying Light 2 returning a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Battlefield 2042 which is getting 0 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

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 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Dying Light 2 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 then checked the performance on Battlefield 2042 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB, which is 57% more powerful and can run 725 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, as it can run 304 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 26% increased graphics performance.
