Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 239 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition is running Dying Light 2 and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 0 frames per second. Comparing this to Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 0 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Star Citizen, which is predicted to run at 30 frames per second.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition at 1440p with Dying Light 2, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Star Citizen with predictions of L: 60FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 FTW 4GB Edition ?
