Synthetic Benchmarks

Now that we have an idea of what makes the Gigabyte GTX 960 tick, I wanted to run it through our synthetic benchmark suite to see how it compares to the other GTX 960’s. For a little reference here is the breakdown of their clock speeds

Asus GTX 960 Strix: 1317 MHz

MSI GTX 960 Gaming 2G: 1216 MHz

Gigabyte GTX 960: 1304 MHz

It is a little ironic that the Asus with its single 6 pin power connection actually has the highest factory overclock, but I digress. Oddly enough the Gigabyte GTX 960 did actually perform faster than the other two cards in 3DMark Fire Strike on the performance and extreme settings. On the ultra setting at 4k none of the cards performed well but the Gigabyte was at thr bottom of the pile. The results were similar in the Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 as well with the Gigabyte being just slightly ahead of the Asus and a good about above the MSI.

Hey everyone, while I did get sick this weekend at Gamers for Giving. I didn't let that hold me back when getting this review out today (although it is a little later in the day than normal). Enjoy!
