While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI 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 MSI 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 786 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.
Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Forza Horizon 5 will get 44 FPS with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI 6GB Edition, Days Gone getting 58 FPS and Resident Evil 8 getting 44 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.
People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI 6GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Forza Horizon 5 and predict it will be playable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 89 FPS, Medium: 70 FPS, High: 47 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. We added Days Gone to our tests and saw it was playable with a 44 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI 6GB Edition is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI 6GB Edition in your PC?
