How well can the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 206.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Planet Zoo getting 0 FPS with the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition, Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order getting 0 FPS and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting 9 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Planet Zoo to see how the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 6. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition we get the impression that it is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 EVGA ACX 2.0+ 4GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.
