How well can the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2019. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 308 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting 15 FPS with the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI, Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order predicted to get 0 FPS and Red Dead Redemption 2 getting 21 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI at 1440p with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 30 FPS, Medium: 24 FPS, High: 16 FPS and Ultra: 11 FPS. We then checked out Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Red Dead Redemption 2 that returned L: 41FPS, M: 33FPS, H: 22FPS, U: 16FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI we get the impression that it is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI in your PC? This GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 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 860M 2GB SLI? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which meets 982 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 134% better performance. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB which meets 617 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 45% better performance.
