How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition get on latest AAA 2019 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. 287 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1080p of 18 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Cyberpunk 2077 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 The Outer Worlds, which was getting 23 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 35FPS, M: 28FPS, H: 19FPS, U: 13FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Cyberpunk 2077 which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at The Outer Worlds where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 17 FPS. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 Asus OC 2GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 96% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 899 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 44% better performance and can run 672 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

at stock clocks a quality 500w will be enough (by quality I mean seasonic). I think you'll find this video useful, the user has an overclocked watercooled 3770k and a gtx 680 so you'll be pulling around 50-150 watts less than him.
