10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed
Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 680 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.
DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.
How well will the GeForce GTX 680 run 2022 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. This graphics hardware can run 196 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.
The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 680 shows us that Forza Horizon 5 is getting a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 returning a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Star Citizen which is predicted to get 26 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.
Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Battlefield 2042 on the GeForce GTX 680 to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Star Citizen which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 19 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Forza Horizon 5 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 680 is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 in your PC?
We think this GeForce GTX 680 has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered. Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680?
If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 680 then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB
as this is better than 726 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 64% better performance as well. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 680 is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300
, which is 31% more powerful and can run 305 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
