But the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition can also run 1440p pc system requirements. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition get on latest AAA 2021 games?

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition can run Battlefield 6 at 1080p and predict it will return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 97 FPS, Medium: 75 FPS, High: 66 FPS and Ultra: 53 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to return a playable 40 FPS at Ultra 1080p.
