Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

How well will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 786 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition can run Days Gone at 1080p and saw it return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 153 FPS, Medium: 121 FPS, High: 81 FPS and Ultra: 58 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to return a playable 40 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Days Gone and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 117 FPS, Medium: 92 FPS, High: 62 FPS and Ultra: 44 FPS. We then checked the performance on Grand Theft Auto VI to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be playable with a 30 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition, this is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 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 Asus 6GB Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 980 Ti Asus 6GB Edition? Then we would suggest getting a 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, as it can run 975 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 31% increased graphics performance. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 25% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 965 games from the most demanding games today.
