How well can the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition run games
5 Jun 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast 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. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition graphics card, when running 2020 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 112 games in the list.

A GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition card at 1080p is seeing a playable frame rate when running Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord on Ultra - 32 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Valorant which is 360 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Call of Duty Warzone performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 20 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 64 FPS, Medium: 51 FPS, High: 34 FPS and Ultra: 24 FPS. Next we have Valorant running on GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition which gets L: 724FPS, M: 570FPS, H: 384FPS, U: 274FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Call of Duty Warzone gets L: 40FPS, M: 32FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition is a very good hardware option at these screen sizes. Ultra is easily achieved across almost all games at 1440p and we would suggest an increase of screen size up to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 770 PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 90% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 866 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 703 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 49% increased graphics performance.
