How well can the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI run games
A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 998.

Running at 1080p this card gets a strong frame rate from Red Dead Redemption 2 with 111 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip which returns a strong 126 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular eFootball PES 2020 which we saw getting a strong 170 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI at 1440p with Red Dead Redemption 2, which got a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 224 FPS, Medium: 176 FPS, High: 119 FPS and Ultra: 85 FPS. We then checked out Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 253FPS, M: 199FPS, H: 134FPS, U: 96FPS. And another popular game was eFootball PES 2020 that returned L: 341FPS, M: 269FPS, H: 181FPS, U: 129FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI running at 1440p is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI 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 SLI? 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 SLI.

GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 1080 put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.


Architecture
The Pascal Architecture aims for even more Energy Efficiency by using a 16nm FinFET Process and an Improved Version of the Delta Color Compression Algorithm, as well as the use of Second-Gen GDDR5X.


GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed P104-400-A1 which, together, offer 5120 Shader Processing Units, 320 TMUs and 128 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1733MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
Each GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Second-Gen GDDR5X, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1251MHz.


Power Consumption
Power Consumption is around 350W.


Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 25% Performance Boost over a Single GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 70% at 3840x2160.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend an Enthusiast Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

Your rig is neat man!


How have you done it with your cards? I had 980Ti sli for a little while as well before I sold one for a 1080. (My 1500 stock voltage 980Ti is in my 4770 rig).


I had some heat issue with one card on air, other one under water.

They're both under air, 83c/77c at full load. stock everything lol. I'll probably will go with a Titan (Volta) in SLI when that comes out. I plan to put these into my brothers rigs when I upgrade.

Hehe, stock is not allowed in my house. ;) ^^


Another reason I got rid of the second card was due poor OC. Did only manage 1400 mhz.


Yeah. Wait for Volta. Sounds like a good plan! :D
