How well can the GeForce GTX 560M run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 560M graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 560M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 560M in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTX 560M graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 560M? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 560M? Then we would suggest getting a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile, as it can run 982 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 729% increased graphics performance. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 560M would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB which meets 606 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 416% better performance.

GeForce GTX 560M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 560M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF116 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to a desktop GeForce GTs 450.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 560M.

It depends. It can support 3GB of video memory but it can't certainly use them.

Buy one? Or buy a laptop with one?
It doesn't matter. You don't need 3GB when gaming at a laptop. Not even 2GB let alone 3GB. 1.5GB will suffice for any game out there.

I'm having problems when I run some games, not sure if it has to do with the GFX card or not. Whenever I play some games, I get random FPS drops that last about 15 sec every minute or so. That only happens in certain games like Dragon Age: Origins. I'm pretty sure it has nothing to so with my rig being outdated because I run more demanding games (Batman Arkham City) without facing that problem. So has anyone faced that problem and can help out?

This GPU SHOULD be able to play all games on high settings with an average resolution but some might still require Medium settings, like Metro 2033.
