While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 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.
This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.
This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition graphics card, when running 2022 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 779 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 Palit JetStream 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 Star Citizen is predicted to return a good 62 FPS at Ultra 1080p.
We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 89 FPS, Medium: 70 FPS, High: 47 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. Next we have Star Citizen running on GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition which is predicted to get L: 125FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Forza Horizon 5 gets L: 89FPS, M: 70FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 34FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition running at 1440p is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Palit JetStream 6GB Edition in your PC?
