How well can the GeForce GTX 680M SLI run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680M SLI 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. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 680M SLI where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 294 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The GeForce GTX 680M SLI graphics card is returning a weak performance on Borderlands 3 at 1080p of 21 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Need For Speed Heat which we saw got weak frame rates of 21 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Planet Zoo, which was getting 0 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Borderlands 3 on the GeForce GTX 680M SLI to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 41FPS, M: 33FPS, H: 22FPS, U: 16FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Need For Speed Heat which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 16 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Planet Zoo where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 680M SLI we get the impression that it is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680M SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680M SLI 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 680M SLI? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile, which has 134% better performance and can run 982 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, as it can run 606 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 45% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 680M SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680M SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 680M put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
As it's known, GeForce GTX 680M is based on the Kepler GK104 Core, featuring 1344 Shading Units but with lower clock frequencies putting its performance at level with a desktop GeForce GTX 660.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support. Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, about 45% better than a single GeForce GTX 680M performing by itself but at times it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 680M.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.

They are not as you say s*it because they do contain some pretty good hardware but they are extremely overpriced. When u buy an alienware it is the name you are paying for not the components
