How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 280 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Borderlands 3 which is 17 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Need For Speed Heat performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 17 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order on the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Borderlands 3 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 13 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Need For Speed Heat where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 13 FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition, this is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 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 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 107% better performance and can run 900 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 692 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 55% increased graphics performance.
