EVGA GTX 960 SuperSC SweetSpot Plus Style

Bioshock Infinite

Set in 1912, the game has protagonist, former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the floating air city of Columbia to find a young woman, Elizabeth, who has been held captive there for most of her life. Though Booker rescues Elizabeth, the two become involved with the city’s warring factions: the nativist and elite Founders that rule Columbia and strive to keep its privileges for White Americans, and the Vox Populi, underground rebels representing the underclass of the city. During this conflict, Booker learns that Elizabeth possesses strange powers to manipulate “Tears” in the space-time continuum that ravage Columbia, and soon discovers her to be central to the city’s dark secrets.

The EVGA GTX 960 SSC took the lead at 92.8 FPS with the MSI card about a FPS behind, looking at the 500 and 600 series cards you can tell if you are running one of those it might be time to break out the upgrade dollars.

Bioshock_2560

Running at 2560 x 1440 the R9 285 came out a FPS ahead with the EVGA GTX 960 SSC nipping at it’s heels, of course the MSI GTX 960 was running right there with the EVGA card.

FarCry 4

The game follows Ajay Ghale, a young Kyrati-American of Nepali origin who returns to his native country of Kyrat (presently in Nepal) to spread his deceased mother’s ashes. Kyrat was an autonomous state in the Himalayas ruled by separate Kyrati Kings. Kyrat is derived from Kirati, a collection of Himalayan people originating from Tibet bordering the Himalayas. Ajay finds the country in a state of civil war between Kyrat’s Royal Army led by the country’s eccentric and tyrannical king Pagan Min and the Golden Path, a rebel movement fighting to free Kyrat from Min’s oppressive rule. The choices Ajay makes will determine the fate of Kyrat. This story has been inspired by the ten-year-long Maoist insurgency in Nepal.

FarCry 4 crushes GPU’s and none of the cards make the 30 FPS I consider rock solid to the eye gaming but the two GTX 960’s came close, no worries with a little relaxed settings both cards played FarCry 4 well.

FarCry_2560

Running 2560 x 1440 finds all the GPU’s on their knees begging for mercy but the EVGA GTX 960 came out on top at 18.1 FPS.  With this generation Maxwell technology it makes a person wonder why video game companies would even bother to produce games that don’t want to run except at poor quality settings. I know here at the lab we game on and off and we don’t enjoy a game that has stuttering and low quality video to run this generations video cards.

9.4

The EVGA GTX 960 has that kind of quiet style of an era gone by. Instead of a Bikini cowling with flimsy plastic it sports a full cowling and under that cowling it packs a plethora of technology.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.

  1. I hate it when amateur overclockers are worried about the lifespan of their card, and are afraid to adjust the voltage….
    Good for you the 8800gt is still alive.. now go play doom with it

    • Actually we get paid to OC and to OV equipment and we do it very well making us the professional OCers. You on the other hand have no world records and don’t get paid making you the rank amateur. OCing is for when you need that boost, and yes there is a trend to 24/7 OCing and there are also reports of 24/7 overclockers experiencing twice the failure rate of equipment of moderate use overclockers. Then the Overvolters like you try and foist your burnt up trash on innocent people on Ebay. My XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog sold for $100 all these years later and the guy Running SLI 8800GT retro SLI will enjoy his vintage rig for years. Haven’t you heard bro Old is gold, well except in your case old is just trash.

      • Zomg. This is the best response I’ve seen on a review ever. A lengthy review and all he could do was whine about OV. As to the 8800, pretty sure there’s someone in this house playing WoW on one.

  2. Enjoyed your review. Keep up the good work. Thanks.
