A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Aero OC 8GB Edition will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Aero OC 8GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

How well will the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Aero OC 8GB Edition run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 982 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Aero OC 8GB Edition is predicted to run Microsoft Flight Simulator with reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 56 frames per second. Comparing this to FIFA 20 which is getting strong results, where it averages 202 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip, which is running at 82 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Microsoft Flight Simulator will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 112 FPS, Medium: 88 FPS, High: 59 FPS and Ultra: 42 FPS.
