How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 228 games in the list.

The GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition graphics card is returning a reasonable performance on FIFA 22 at 1080p of 57 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Battlefield 2042 which we predict will get weak frame rates of 0 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Dying Light 2, which is predicted to get 0 FPS under tests.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at FIFA 22 where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 114 FPS, Medium: 90 FPS, High: 60 FPS and Ultra: 43 FPS. We added Battlefield 2042 to our research and predict it will be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Dying Light 2 leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition we get the impression that it is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 Twin Frozr OC Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 54% better performance and can run 628 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which has 27% better performance and can run 312 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
