How well can the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI run games
The GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI will blast beyond the majority of games requirements at 1080p, so crank up your screen resolution to 1440p or 4K and let the beautiful AAA game visuals wash over you. This is how gaming is meant to be played but you are likely to have to pay top dollar for the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI privilege. But if you can get this graphics solution, then its happy gaming.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

There is only a very few games out today that the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI can't play. It can run 91% of demanding games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 980 4GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.


GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs codenamed GM204-400-A1 which, together, offer 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 128 ROPs, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1126MHz and goes up to 1216MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.


Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 300W and 400W.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is over 7% faster than AMD's Radeon R9 295X2.


System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Six Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI.
