Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB 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. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 946 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 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 proceeded to look at FIFA 22 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 125 FPS 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 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Far Cry 6 and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 101 FPS, Medium: 79 FPS, High: 53 FPS and Ultra: 38 FPS. We then checked the performance on FIFA 22 to see if that runs well. It was strong with a 95 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition running at 1440p is a very good hardware option at these screen sizes. Ultra is easily achieved across almost all games at 1440p and we would suggest an increase of screen size up to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1080 EVGA 8GB 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 1080 EVGA 8GB Edition.
