It's starting to show it's age with some newer maps on CS:GO running at about 15-30FPS which is not really playable for an FPS.

Don't worry if you have this GPU if your laptop has a thunderbolt like my Acer Nitro Black Edition from yesteryears and get an eGPU if you want better gaming. Otherwise, on lower settings, I have been able to play everything I wanted.

It's... alright. Runs pretty much every title on the market at a playable framerate. Amazing for lower end games, and good enough for modern AAA titles. Can cause some throttling to occur though.

My Graphics Card of my Laptop, Works well - is enough for Unity and not heavy Gaming, but many heavyer Games Need to be on lower Quality or my Laptops goes hot :D


Average

does the job well, especially when overclocked, but power consumption could be better (don't expect more than 2 hours of gaming on this even with a decent battery), and with just 2gb of VRAM, you might have to lower texture quality on most newer games (though there's a 4gb variant which I'd recommend over the 2gb)

All these people that are saying its terrible and bad, are wrong! The reason they are saying its bad, its because they probably don't have dual channel ram, which is a must with this GPU. After I upgraded my ram to dual channel my fps doubled, and it can now run every game I throw at it, atleast 60 FPS on 1080p.

Released in 2015, couple of months after the 900 series desktop cards, the GTX960M was a Maxwell, midrange laptop gaming GPU, available in 2 main configurations, 2GB GDDR5 and 4GB GDDR5 versions. In terms of gaming performance, dont expect high FPS in modern titles. From my experience, in Call of Duty Warzone, I would average about 30-40 FPS, low settings, 900p. However, this GPU can still play less demanding titles such as Sea of Thieves, State Of Decay 2, etc, with frames ranging 60+ FPS. But, If you want to continue playing the newest games with adequate framerates/resolution, an upgrade is a good idea. In terms of Overclocability, yes, this card can OC (I tried +100mhz core, +150mhz memory), however, be aware of overheating, I applied Liquid metal instead of thermal paste on my 960M in my laptop, so my temps are around 60-65 degrees for GPU under full load, but without LM, expect temps to be in the realms of 80-95 degrees (of course, depending on your laptop model). In conclusion, this GPU can game, but if you want to play the latest AAA games at decent framerates, an upgrade to a new computer would be good.

For use in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop? it's okay I use it to play old games like Half life 2 and other source games but i will admit, it is slow asf
