How well can the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 372 games in the list.

A GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Far Cry 6 on Ultra - 18 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Back 4 Blood which is 50 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Battlefield 2042 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 7 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Far Cry 6 to see how the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 36 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 19 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. Next we looked at Back 4 Blood which was playable with a 38 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Battlefield 2042 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 5. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.

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? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI then a good choice would be 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti as this is better than 972 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 74% better performance as well. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI then a good choice would be R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB as this is better than 961 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 65% better performance as well.
