How well can the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the most powerful pieces of hardware available today, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 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 Zotac 6GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 880 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title FIFA 20 and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 364 FPS, Medium: 303 FPS, High: 222 FPS and Ultra: 162 FPS. We proceeded to look at Planet Zoo to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 44 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition at 1440p with FIFA 20, which got a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 277 FPS, Medium: 231 FPS, High: 169 FPS and Ultra: 123 FPS. We then checked out Planet Zoo which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 89FPS, M: 70FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 34FPS. And another popular game was Borderlands 3 that returned L: 117FPS, M: 92FPS, H: 62FPS, U: 44FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition?

Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac 6GB Edition would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB which meets 982 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 25% better performance.
