How well can the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI run games
15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI where we look at the bigger games played in 2020. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 238 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Cyberpunk 2077 will get 43 FPS with the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI, Valorant getting 471 FPS and Grand Theft Auto VI predicted to get 20 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 87 FPS, Medium: 68 FPS, High: 46 FPS and Ultra: 33 FPS. We then checked the performance on Valorant to see if that runs well. It was strong with a 359 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI 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 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI 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 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which is 43% more powerful and can run 833 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
