How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition run games
10 Feb 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. 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 2020. 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 145 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Need For Speed Heat on Ultra - 17 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Grand Theft Auto VI which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Fortnite: Chapter 2 performs on this hardware, which gets a good 70 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Need For Speed Heat on the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 34FPS, M: 27FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Grand Theft Auto VI which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Fortnite: Chapter 2 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were reasonable at 53 FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition, this is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.

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? We think this GeForce GTX 960 Asus Mini OC 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

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 Ti 6GB, which has 111% better performance and can run 878 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 739 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 66% increased graphics performance.
