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

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF 6GB Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games.

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

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF 6GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. 807 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF 6GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Days Gone and saw it deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 169 FPS, Medium: 133 FPS, High: 90 FPS and Ultra: 64 FPS. We proceeded to look at Star Citizen to see how that compared and predict that it will return a good 72 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF 6GB Edition at 1440p with Days Gone, which got a reasonable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 129 FPS, Medium: 102 FPS, High: 68 FPS and Ultra: 49 FPS. We then checked out Star Citizen which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 145FPS, M: 114FPS, H: 77FPS, U: 55FPS. And another popular game was FIFA 22 that returned L: 224FPS, M: 176FPS, H: 119FPS, U: 85FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF 6GB Edition we get the impression that it is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

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