How well can the GeForce 3 run games
26 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce 3 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 8 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce 3 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce 3 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce 3 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce 3? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce 3 is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which is 7962% more powerful and can run 879 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 6223% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 745 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce 3 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce 3 is a very old GPU part of the GeForce 3 Series released by NVIDIA in 2001.
It only supports DirectX up to 8.1 so even DirectX 9 games are most likely unplayable.
That being said, the 64MB video memory and very low core clock doom its performance from the start. Therefore, almost all today's games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
