While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Palit Super JetStream 4GB Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

GeForce GTX 980 Palit Super JetStream 4GB 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 980 Palit Super JetStream 4GB 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 2021. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 764.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 980 Palit Super JetStream 4GB Edition can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and predict it will return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 87 FPS, Medium: 69 FPS, High: 46 FPS and Ultra: 33 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that FIFA 22 is predicted to return a strong 92 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 980 Palit Super JetStream 4GB Edition at 1440p and researched how Battlefield 2042 might perform on it leading us to predict a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 66 FPS, Medium: 52 FPS, High: 35 FPS and Ultra: 25 FPS. We then checked out FIFA 22 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 184FPS, M: 145FPS, H: 98FPS, U: 70FPS. And another popular game was Star Citizen with predictions of L: 113FPS, M: 89FPS, H: 60FPS, U: 43FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 980 Palit Super JetStream 4GB Edition, this is a good choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.
