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

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 853 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI can run Borderlands 3 at 1080p and saw it return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 135 FPS, Medium: 106 FPS, High: 71 FPS and Ultra: 51 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order returns a playable 37 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI by playing Borderlands 3 which yielded a playable performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 103FPS, M: 81FPS, H: 54FPS, U: 39FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order and that was playable. This graphics card delivered 28 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was FIFA 20 which gets strong results with a 109FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is probably one of the better high resolution gaming options on the graphics card market. You can consider pushing most games up to 4K with this gpu and Ultra 1440p is going to be a regular occurrence for gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which meets 901 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 24% better performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has 31% better performance and can run 962 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 680 Quad SLI is a solution of four GeForce GTX 680 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 680 to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to around 115% better than a single GeForce GTX 680 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 680. Expect this combination to draw up to 780 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
