How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 295 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Diablo 4 with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Death Stranding which is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Borderlands 3 which we saw getting a weak 20 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition at 1440p and researched how Diablo 4 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Death Stranding which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Borderlands 3 that returned L: 40FPS, M: 32FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition we get the impression that it is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit Super JetStream 2GB Edition then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB as this is better than 897 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 100% better performance as well. 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 49% better and can meet 685 of their recommended requirements.
