Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 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 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 972.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB 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: 197 FPS, Medium: 155 FPS, High: 104 FPS and Ultra: 75 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a reasonable 58 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Days Gone on the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition to see that it got a reasonable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 150FPS, M: 118FPS, H: 80FPS, U: 57FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Resident Evil 8 which seemed playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 44 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Back 4 Blood where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 64 FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition, this 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 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB 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 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 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 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition.
