EVGA GTX 960 SuperSC SweetSpot Plus Style

Unigine Heaven 4.0 & Metro Last Light

Unigine Heaven

Heaven Benchmark with its current version 4.0 is a GPU-intensive benchmark that hammers graphics cards to the limits. This powerful tool can be effectively used to determine the stability of a GPU under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system’s potential under maximum heat output. It provides completely unbiased results and generates true in-game rendering workloads across all platforms.



Ungine Heaven 4.0 has morphed from its original state to a GPU killing monster.  Running Unigine Heaven 4.0 at 1920 x 1080 the EVGA GTX 980 SSC jumped out in the lead with a 2.4 FPS lead over the MSI GTX 960 and squeaked out a .5 FPS lead over the R9 285.


Both the GTX 980’s ran in the high 19 FPS range and the R9 285 beat both by about 1.5 FPS, the test was painful to watch on all three GPU’s.

Metro Last Light



Metro Last Light running 1920 x 1080 the R9 285 came out on top at 34.88 FPS with the EVGA GTX 960 hitting 31.2 and the MSI GTX 960 getting 28.6 so we can expect sub 30 FPS scores in the 2560 test.


Oddly enough at the higher resolution the R9 285 drops to third place and the EVGA GTX-980 SSC takes the lead at 24.1 FPS with the MSI GTX 22.3 FPS. The older cards on the chart didn’t stand a chance and we were about to perform CPR on them.

Review Overview

Value - 9.5
Performance - 9
Quality - 9.5
Features - 9.5
Innovation - 9.5


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.

  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.
