How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB run games
4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 104 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Cyberpunk 2077 with 8 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at TrackMania Nations Remake which returns a strong 236 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Valorant which we saw getting a strong 381 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB by researching Cyberpunk 2077 leading us to predict a weak performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 16FPS, M: 13FPS, H: 9FPS, U: 6FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was TrackMania Nations Remake and that was strong. This graphics card delivered 180 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Valorant which gets strong results with a 291FPS on Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB running at 1440p is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

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? We think this GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which is 76% more powerful and can run 855 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB as this is better than 800 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 44% better performance as well.

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

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


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.


GPU
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.


Memory
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.


Features
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.


Performance
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.
