How well can the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition run games
13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the most powerful pieces of hardware available today, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition runs today’s game system requirements comfortably. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. 870 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

A GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a playable frame rate when running Detroit: Become Human on Ultra - 38 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Resident Evil 3 Remake which is 64 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 44 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition at 1440p with Detroit: Become Human, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 77 FPS, Medium: 60 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. We then checked out Resident Evil 3 Remake which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 128FPS, M: 101FPS, H: 68FPS, U: 48FPS. And another popular game was Cyberpunk 2077 with predictions of L: 89FPS, M: 70FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 34FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition we get the impression that it is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 6GB which is 21% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 967 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 25% better and can meet 982 of their recommended requirements.
