How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2023. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 247 games in todays list.

A GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a playable frame rate when running Star Citizen on Ultra - 38 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Dying Light 2 which is 1 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Far Cry 6 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 76 FPS, Medium: 59 FPS, High: 40 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB which gets L: 1FPS, M: 1FPS, H: 1FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB 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 Ti 4GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB which meets 716 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 45% better performance. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which is 104% more powerful and can run 956 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is an upcoming high-end Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
