2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2020. 977 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition graphics card is returning a good performance on Grounded at 1080p of 74 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 57 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Grand Theft Auto VI, which is predicted to get 53 FPS under tests.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Grounded where it was reasonable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 149 FPS, Medium: 117 FPS, High: 79 FPS and Ultra: 56 FPS. We added Cyberpunk 2077 to our research and predict it will be playable with a 43 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Grand Theft Auto VI leading us to predict 40 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition is a good choice for running modern games at Ultra in this larger screen resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade
