How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB run games
22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB 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. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 145 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is predicted to run Assassins Creed: Valhalla with weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 5 frames per second. Comparing this to Mafia: Definitive Edition which is predicted to get playable results, where it averages 30 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Mafia 2: Definitive Edition, which is running at 30 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Assassins Creed: Valhalla will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 8 FPS, Medium: 7 FPS, High: 6 FPS and Ultra: 4 FPS. Next we have Mafia: Definitive Edition running on GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB which is predicted to get L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Mafia 2: Definitive Edition gets L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

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? 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 960 Ti 2GB is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 866 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 79% better performance as well. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 707 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 41% better performance.

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

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


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.


GPU
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.


Memory
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.


Features
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.


Performance
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.
