How well can the GeForce GTX 1080M run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1080M will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. GeForce GTX 1080M is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1080M game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 959.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 1080M shows us that Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get a reasonable result of 53 FPS, and then we are seeing Halo: Reach returning a strong 199 FPS while another game on our list is the Borderlands 3 which is getting 69 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1080M to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Halo: Reach where it was strong. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 400 FPS, Medium: 315 FPS, High: 212 FPS and Ultra: 151 FPS. We added Borderlands 3 to our tests and saw it was reasonable with a 52 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Cyberpunk 2077 leading us to predict 40 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 1080M PC gaming is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1080M? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce GTX 1080M.
