In- Game Benchmarks
With the addition of a few more new in game benchmarks that include 1440p testing I can no longer split up our 1080p and 1440p testing cleanly so our in-game section is packed full of graphs, keep that in mind when scrolling down. So I ran the GTX 960 Strix through 11 different games to get a nice variety of games, hopefully a few of them match up with what you are hoping to play. Of those 11 games six of them run at 60 FPS or higher (going up over 100 even) and the other 5 all run above 30 FPS at 1080p. What that tells us is that the GTX 960 Strix isn’t going to have any problem running any game at its highest settings at a standard resolution. Turning things up to 1440 however put a bit of a strain on the card with 4/8 of the 1440p test results being under 30 FPS. It’s not all bad though, one was above 30 FPS and three had numbers above 60! I wouldn’t go with this card if I was planning on running 1440p unless I was only planning on playing a few of the less demanding games or willing to turn the settings down slightly. As for how the GTX 960 Strix performed compared to the other card, there weren’t any surprises. It came in just above the R9 285 and below the GTX 770 in most situations just like in our synthetic testing.
