10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely 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 216 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB Edition shows us that Resident Evil 8 is getting a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Forza Horizon 5 predicted to return a playable 28 FPS while another game on our list is the Battlefield 2042 which is predicted to get 0 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.
