How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 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.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 214 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Diablo 4 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Diablo 4 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB 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 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB 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 114% 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 60% better and can meet 685 of their recommended requirements.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered market to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Palit's JetStream Cooling Solution, meaning the Graphics Card runs cooler under load.


Performance
Without Any Overclock Out of The Box, GeForce GTX 960 Palit JetStream 4GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
