How well can the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 266 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Borderlands 3 with 17 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which returns a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Planet Zoo which we saw getting a weak 0 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition by playing Borderlands 3 which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 34FPS, M: 27FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Planet Zoo which gets weak results with a 0FPS on Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition running at 1440p is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB 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 960 EVGA Superclocked 2GB Edition? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 107% better and can run 897 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 55% better and can meet 685 of their recommended requirements.
