4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB 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 12.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 101 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is running Call of Duty Warzone and delivering playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 25 frames per second. Comparing this to Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 0 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Horizon: Zero Dawn, which is predicted to run at 30 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Call of Duty Warzone which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 49 FPS, Medium: 39 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. Next we have Grand Theft Auto VI running on GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Horizon: Zero Dawn is predicted to get L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB 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 960 Ti 2GB is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB as this is better than 852 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 76% better performance as well. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB which meets 799 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 44% better performance.

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is an upcoming high-end Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
