GeForce GTX 960 PNY XLR8 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview

Overclock: Central Unit
None.


Overclock: Memory Clock
None.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB.
While 4GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 4GB are needed, such as gaming above 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.


Cooling Solution
Untouched.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate no performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
