How well can the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition run games
13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 896 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition graphics card is returning a strong performance on Halo: Reach at 1080p of 187 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict will get reasonable frame rates of 50 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Detroit: Become Human, which was getting 45 FPS under tests.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition at 1440p with Halo: Reach, which got a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 376 FPS, Medium: 296 FPS, High: 199 FPS and Ultra: 142 FPS. We then checked out Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 100FPS, M: 79FPS, H: 53FPS, U: 38FPS. And another popular game was Detroit: Become Human that returned L: 90FPS, M: 71FPS, H: 48FPS, U: 34FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition, this is a solid performer with higher resolution modern gaming. This graphics card can also bump up to 4K gaming regularly with the latest games still being capable of high or ultra graphics settings at this level.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 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 MSI Gaming 6GB Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Super 8GB, which is 21% more powerful and can run 992 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, as it can run 992 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 26% increased graphics performance.

If u plan ether 2 970s or a single 980TI, you need a better PSU. But seeing your MB, go for 1x 980 TI if u can.

Will I get any performance bottleneck if I pair this card with an FX-8320? If yes, how much overclock would I need to compensate?
