It is surprising how close the GeForce GTX 960 approaches the GeForce GTX 770 in our first result. However, due to it’s low bandwidth, higher textures and resolutions really show to be demanding for the GeForce GTX 960. At 1080p, which is the target of this card, it is still getting a very good score with 43.3 FPS, putting it right in place between the GeForce GTX 770 and the GeForce GTX 760. I wouldn’t be surprised if at lower resolutions or with lower AA and textures, the GeForce GTX 960 might even beat the GeForce GTX 770.
