How well can the GeForce GTS 160M run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTS 160M is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 10 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GTS 160M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTS 160M in your PC? This GeForce GTS 160M graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTS 160M? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 1888% better and can meet 982 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, as it can run 605 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 1138% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTS 160M Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTS 160M is the most powerful GPU of the 100M Series released by NVIDIA in 2009.
The biggest hindrance it has is the fact that it only supports DirectX up to 10 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
It's based on the 'G94b' architecture (same as GTS 150M) and also same as GeForce 9800M GTS, but with the same specs, so technically a renamed GeForce 9800M GTS but produced at 55nm, instead of 65nm.
Compared to the most powerful Mobile GPUS (e.g. GTX 485M, Radeon HD 6990M), GeForce GTS 160M is far behind but it's still capable of playing demanding games (like Crysis) at medium or high settings.
