How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB 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 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2022. 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 172 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Back 4 Blood to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 28 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition at 1440p with Far Cry 6, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Back 4 Blood which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 56FPS, M: 44FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 21FPS. And another popular game was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB as this is better than 722 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 68% better performance as well. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax EXOC White 2GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 as this is better than 303 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 34% better performance as well.
