2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB. 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 992.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB shows us that Horizon: Zero Dawn is getting a strong result of 86 FPS, and then we are seeing Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to return a good 66 FPS while another game on our list is the Valorant which is getting 922 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB at 1440p and researched how Cyberpunk 2077 might perform on it leading us to predict a reasonable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 133 FPS, Medium: 105 FPS, High: 70 FPS and Ultra: 50 FPS. We then checked out Valorant which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 1855FPS, M: 1462FPS, H: 984FPS, U: 703FPS. And another popular game was Horizon: Zero Dawn that returned L: 172FPS, M: 136FPS, H: 91FPS, U: 65FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB running at 1440p is probably one of the better high resolution gaming options on the graphics card market.
