How well can the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB 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.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p 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 791 games in the list.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Far Cry 6 with 38 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Dying Light 2 which is predicted to return a playable 40 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will get a playable 40 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition will run the upcoming game Far Cry 6 to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 77 FPS, Medium: 60 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. Another game researched was Dying Light 2 with predictions of L: 80FPS, M: 63FPS, H: 42FPS, U: 30FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Grand Theft Auto VI, wih estimates revealing L: 80FPS, M: 63FPS, H: 42FPS, U: 30FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition is certainly a viable option for these higher gaming resolutions. Remember that if you suffer some 1440p FPS drops the you can usually tweak modern game graphics settings until you get a near High graphics setting experience with this Graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition then a good choice would be 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti as this is better than 976 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 31% better performance as well. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition then a good choice would be R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB as this is better than 967 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 25% better performance as well.
