How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition run games
A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 291 games in todays list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing The Outer Worlds getting 24FPS with the GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition, Microsoft Flight Simulator getting 0FPS and Ghost Recon Breakpoint getting 15frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

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 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition ran The Outer Worlds to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 48 FPS, Medium: 38 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 18 FPS. Another game tested was Microsoft Flight Simulator, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on, Ghost Recon Breakpoint which returned L: 29FPS, M: 23FPS, H: 15FPS, U: 11FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition PC gaming is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 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 Inno3D HerculeZ 1X 2GB Edition? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti EVGA XC Gaming 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 119% better and can run 923 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 730 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 60% increased graphics performance.
