Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 G1 Gaming, Bigger Is Better!

Synthetic Benchmarks

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.

I recently switched from 1920 x 1200 to 1920 x 1080, and to further standardize that, I also use 2560 x 1440 settings for higher resolution testing. All cards were retested to this standard. The Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gaming came in second spot in 1080p testing in Unigine Heaven 4.0 churning out 44.1 FPS in the GPU challenging test.

Bumping it down one notch to 1080p, the Gigabyte GTX 960 jumped ahead of the EVGA card but the AMD R9 285 topped the chart.

3DMark Skydiver

The Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gamer scores a 25671 on 3DMark Skydiver and since SkyDiver is for less beefy GPUs, we ran it at 1920 x 1080.

No Special settings were used in 3DMark with the exception that Physics were turned off.
