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

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

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte 6GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2022. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 772.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte 6GB Edition shows us that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to get a playable result of 40 FPS, and then we are seeing Back 4 Blood returning a good 66 FPS while another game on our list is the Resident Evil 8 which is getting 44 frames per second 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 Gigabyte 6GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Back 4 Blood and saw it deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 132 FPS, Medium: 104 FPS, High: 70 FPS and Ultra: 50 FPS. We then checked the performance on Resident Evil 8 to see if that runs well. It was playable with a 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte 6GB Edition we get the impression that it is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte 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 Gigabyte 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 Gigabyte 6GB Edition.
