GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Asus.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1253MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1317MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 990MHz, instead of 970MHz.


Overclock: Memory Clock
None.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB.
While 4GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 4GB are needed, such as gaming above 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Asus's Turbo Cooling with Tough ball-bearings on both sides of the fan housing provide greater strength and higher heat tolerance. With reduced friction, it also runs smoother, further improving 4X longer card lifespan.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
