14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC 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. GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 335 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Cyberpunk 2077 with 4 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which returns a weak 22 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Red Dead Redemption 2 which we saw getting a playable 27 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 8 FPS, Medium: 6 FPS, High: 4 FPS and Ultra: 3 FPS. We added Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to our tests and saw it was weak with a 16 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Red Dead Redemption 2 which got 20 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy 2GB OC Edition, this is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.
