10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Kingpin 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.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Kingpin 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 807 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a good frame rate from Days Gone with 64 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at FIFA 22 which returns a strong 111 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Battlefield 2042 which we saw getting a playable 36 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Days Gone on the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Kingpin 6GB Edition to see that it got a reasonable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 129FPS, M: 102FPS, H: 68FPS, U: 49FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was FIFA 22 which seemed strong in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 85 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Battlefield 2042 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 27 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Kingpin 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 EVGA Kingpin 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Kingpin 6GB Edition in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Kingpin 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 EVGA Kingpin 6GB Edition.
