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

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 267 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

A GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Borderlands 3 on Ultra - 17 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Need For Speed Heat which is 17 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Borderlands 3 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 34 FPS, Medium: 27 FPS, High: 18 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. Next we have Need For Speed Heat running on GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition which gets L: 34FPS, M: 27FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC 2GB Edition, this is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

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? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

The twinfrozer had a 256bit bus but yet the GTX 960 is so much better!! Very nice card for the price! If you only going to be playing @ 1920X1080 then You will enjoy it!! I even game @ 4k resolution with graphics lowered abit. But I love it!!!

I have this card, It takes 1x 6pin + 1x 8pin!!


I play GTA V on 3840X2160 on high graphics and get 40-45fps. On normal settings I get about 55-60fps. 4k resolution looks really amazing! If you looking for a cheap and powerful card, this is great. Overclocks quite easily too with decent gains. Oh yes, Don't underestimate its 128bit bus. This card outperforms my previous Msi GTX 760 twinfrozer!!!
