10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Leadtek Winfast Hurricane 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 Leadtek Winfast Hurricane 4GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 980 Leadtek Winfast Hurricane 4GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2021. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 748 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will get 31 FPS with the GeForce GTX 980 Leadtek Winfast Hurricane 4GB Edition, FIFA 22 predicted to get 89 FPS and Dying Light 2 predicted to get 31 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Grand Theft Auto VI on the GeForce GTX 980 Leadtek Winfast Hurricane 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 62FPS, M: 49FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 24FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was FIFA 22 which we predicted will be good in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 68 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Dying Light 2 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 24 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 980 Leadtek Winfast Hurricane 4GB Edition is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.
