Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

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

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 190 games in the list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a reasonable frame rate from FIFA 22 with 53 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Back 4 Blood which returns a playable 27 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will get a weak 0 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition ran FIFA 22 to a playable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 106 FPS, Medium: 83 FPS, High: 56 FPS and Ultra: 40 FPS. Another game tested was Back 4 Blood, L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Grand Theft Auto VI, wih estimates revealing L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition running at 1440p is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 66% better and can meet 625 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 as this is better than 311 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 37% better performance as well.
