DX11: Dragon Age – Inquisition
The Frostbite engine was first developed by EA to debut on Battlefield: Bad Company on 2008. Six years later it is still a widely used engine, mainly because EA keeps updating it and keeping it up to date with the modern standards of gamers. Frostbite 3 is the newest version of this engine, and it is highly configurable with a wide variety of options for audio, animatics, scripting, rendering, visual effects, and many more. It also happens to be featured in one of EA’s latest games; Dragon Age – Inquisition. EA has also scheduled to release more games featuring the same game engine, including Shadow Realms which is expected to debut in 2017.

The role that the GTX 960 is playing here is that of a GeForce GTX 770 follower. Of course if you consider that the GeForce GTX 960 is rated at just 120 Watts, and is relatively cooler, this should put it right on par on value with the GeForce GTX 770. It can also be expected that with future driver updates, the GTX 960 might even surpass the performance of the GeForce GTX 770.
