But if you can get this graphics solution, then its happy gaming. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Borderlands 3 getting 75 FPS with the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA Superclocked ACX 2.0 4GB Edition SLI, The Outer Worlds getting 75 FPS and Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 58 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA Superclocked ACX 2.0 4GB Edition SLI to see how it performs on 1440p.

We added The Outer Worlds to our tests and saw it was reasonable with a 57 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Cyberpunk 2077 leading us to predict 44 FPS at Ultra 1440p.
