With Metro Last Light Redux, the GTX 960 was 15% faster than the GeForce GTX 760. The GTX 960 was twice as fast as the GeForce GTX 750 and then 2.65x faster than the GeForce GTX 650 (unfortunately I don't have the GTX 660). Metro Last Light at 2560 x 1600 was certainly playable with this graphics card.

The system power consumption average when the system was running with the GTX 960 came out to 194 Watts.

The performance-per-Watt of the GTX 960 is well above the original GTX 750 Maxwells but comes up just shy of the GTX 970/980 graphics cards. However, compared to all of the Kepler GPUs and earlier, the power efficiency of the GTX 960 is great.

The GPU core temperature while running Metro Last Light averaged out to 66C and a peak of 72C for this EVGA graphics card.
