How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition run games
13 Aug 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 321 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a strong frame rate when running FIFA 20 on Ultra - 84 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Borderlands 3 which is 17 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular eFootball PES 2020 performs on this hardware, which gets a reasonable 46 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran FIFA 20 on the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition to see that it got a good set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 144FPS, M: 120FPS, H: 88FPS, U: 64FPS. Other popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Borderlands 3 which seemed good in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 13 FPS. And then took a look at eFootball PES 2020 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 35FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition, this is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 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 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 113% better performance and can run 918 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 718 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 55% increased graphics performance.
