Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M SLI
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 880M SLI is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 880M SLI get on latest AAA 2023 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 431 games in the list.

The GeForce GTX 880M SLI graphics card is returning a strong performance on FIFA 22 at 1080p of 80 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Forza Horizon 5 which we saw got playable frame rates of 30 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 22 FPS under tests.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 880M SLI ran FIFA 22 to a good performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 161 FPS, Medium: 127 FPS, High: 85 FPS and Ultra: 61 FPS. Another game tested was Forza Horizon 5, L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Far Cry 6, which returned L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 880M SLI is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 880M SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 880M SLI in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 880M SLI? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 880M SLI then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q as this is better than 805 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 42% better performance as well.

GeForce GTX 880M SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 880M SLI is a combination of 2 GeForce GTX 880M put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
Together, this combination offers 3072 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This, on a 256-bit memory interface, per card, of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 954MHz and goes up to 993MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.
Best case scenario, this combination is expected to offer similar perform to a single desktop GeForce GTX 780 Ti but ultimately, its performance depends on the driver support and on the 3D application.
Therefore, and paired with a powerful processor, all demanding games should be playable at the highest settings. Still, this combination might surpass the 240W barrier of TDP and so only a few laptops will offer it.
