How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How well will the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. 269 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition can run Death Stranding at 1080p and predict it will 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 Planet Zoo returns a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Death Stranding to predict how the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Planet Zoo which was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Diablo 4 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition we get the impression that it is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 105% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 897 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 686 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 54% better performance as well.
