How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 203 games in the list.

The GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Planet Zoo at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which we saw got weak frame rates of 8 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Death Stranding, 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 Hydro Copper Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Planet Zoo where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We added Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to our tests and saw it was weak with a 6 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Death Stranding leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition PC gaming is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition ? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper Edition ? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, as it can run 901 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 119% increased graphics performance.
