How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 288.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition can run Need For Speed Heat at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 49 FPS, Medium: 38 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Borderlands 3 returns a weak 19 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Need For Speed Heat which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. Next we have Borderlands 3 running on GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition which gets L: 37FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Asus Turbo OC 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Asus.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1253MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1317MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 990MHz, instead of 970MHz.


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
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Asus's Turbo Cooling with Tough ball-bearings on both sides of the fan housing provide greater strength and higher heat tolerance. With reduced friction, it also runs smoother, further improving 4X longer card lifespan.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
