How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2023. 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 247.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Days Gone returns a playable 30 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Battlefield 2042 on the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Days Gone which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 23 FPS. Finally we then took a look at FIFA 22 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were reasonable at 47 FPS. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB running at 1440p is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB 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 960 Ti 2GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB which is 45% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 716 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 104% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 956 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is an upcoming high-end Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
