How well can the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC 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. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC 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. This graphics hardware can run 161 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from The Outer Worlds with 12 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Halo: Reach which we saw getting a strong 83 FPS.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at The Outer Worlds and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 24 FPS, Medium: 19 FPS, High: 13 FPS and Ultra: 9 FPS. We then checked the performance on Cyberpunk 2077 to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition running at 1440p is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 896 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 124% better performance as well. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 64% better performance and can run 665 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX 760.
This edition comes with a custom triple-fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 760 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 980MHz to 1085MHz while its boost clock is now of 1150MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs on level with GeForce GTX 670.

This card is a big step up from its predecessor, the 660. So much so that the 760 is a better competitor against the 670, which is saying alot since the latter costs much more. And with the Windforce 3X combined with the overclock edition, gigabyte has made an awesome card even better. This is one of the best cards within the $200-$300 price range.

This one offers better performance, cheaper price (in most markets) and less power consumption. however, AMD might release HD 9000 GFXs later this year so you might consider waiting for the future? :)

Just to inform, the MSI gamign edition and this version are basically the same, same temps, although this card is a little louder (1db) and offers 1-2 fps extra and obviously the looks are different, I checked these using guru3d.
