10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed
Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.
Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.
Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2021. 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. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 167 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.
Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Star Citizen will get 22 FPS with the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition, FIFA 22 getting 52 FPS and Days Gone getting 16 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.
People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Star Citizen and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 35 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. We added FIFA 22 to our tests and saw it was playable with a 40 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Days Gone which got 12 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 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 Zotac 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition in your PC?
