How well can the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

How well will the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 383 games in todays list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI is predicted to run Diablo 4 with weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 16 frames per second. Comparing this to FIFA 20 which is getting strong results, where it averages 107 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Cyberpunk 2077, which is predicted to run at 16 frames per second.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI at 1440p and researched how Diablo 4 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 31 FPS, Medium: 25 FPS, High: 17 FPS and Ultra: 12 FPS. We then checked out FIFA 20 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 184FPS, M: 153FPS, H: 112FPS, U: 82FPS. And another popular game was Cyberpunk 2077 with predictions of L: 31FPS, M: 25FPS, H: 17FPS, U: 12FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI in your PC? This GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI 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 965M 4GB SLI? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which meets 982 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 91% better performance.

GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 965M 4GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.


GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GM204-N16E-GS which, together, offer 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 924MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
Each GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1253MHz.


Power Consumption
Power Consumption is around 100W.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 2560x1440, the best suited resolution, GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI is around 10% faster than a Single GeForce GTX 980M.


System Suggestions
We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
