How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition 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 card runs recommended graphics requirements of 333 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 7 FPS, Medium: 5 FPS, High: 4 FPS and Ultra: 3 FPS. We proceeded to look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 20 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Cyberpunk 2077 on the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 5FPS, M: 4FPS, H: 3FPS, U: 2FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 15 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Borderlands 3 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 19 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 2GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 680 Phantom 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 Phantom 2GB Edition?

Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 40% more powerful.
