10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 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.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition get on latest AAA 2022 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 772.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition can run Resident Evil 8 at 1080p and saw it return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 116 FPS, Medium: 92 FPS, High: 62 FPS and Ultra: 44 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to return a playable 40 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition by playing Resident Evil 8 which yielded a playable performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 89FPS, M: 70FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 34FPS. Another popular game we researched with this card was Grand Theft Auto VI and that was playable. This graphics card is predicted to deliver 30 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was FIFA 22 which gets good results with a 77FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition.
