How well can the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB 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. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 311 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition shows us that Halo: Reach is getting a strong result of 95 FPS, and then we are seeing The Outer Worlds returning a weak 24 FPS while another game on our list is the Red Dead Redemption 2 which is getting 24 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition by playing The Outer Worlds which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Red Dead Redemption 2 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 18 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Halo: Reach which gets good results with a 72FPS on Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition we get the impression that it is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 680 Gigabyte OC 4GB 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 Gigabyte OC 4GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which has 94% better performance and can run 899 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 672 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 43% increased graphics performance.
