10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed
The GeForce GTX 770 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.
DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.
Lets look at the GeForce GTX 770 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2022. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 224 games in todays list.
The GeForce GTX 770 graphics card is returning a weak performance on Resident Evil 8 at 1080p of 1 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Dying Light 2 which we saw got weak frame rates of 0 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 0 FPS under tests.
Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 770 at 1440p with Resident Evil 8, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 1 FPS, Medium: 1 FPS, High: 1 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Dying Light 2 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Far Cry 6 that returned L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 770 is not a viable PC gaming choice.How many years will the GeForce GTX 770 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 770 in your PC?
