How well can the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 198 games in todays list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition shows us that Far Cry 6 is predicted to get a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Back 4 Blood predicted to return a playable 28 FPS while another game on our list is the FIFA 22 which is predicted to get 54 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Back 4 Blood on the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 56FPS, M: 44FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 21FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was FIFA 22 which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 41 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Far Cry 6 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition 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 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 62% better and can run 633 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which has 34% better performance and can run 312 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 EVGA SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1279MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1342MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered market to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by EVGA's ACX 2.0+ Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
