How well can the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI run games
20 Jun 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

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 2020. 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 is predicted to get a strong frame rate from Cyberpunk 2077 with 86 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Valorant which returns a strong 1195 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Horizon: Zero Dawn which we predict will get a strong 86 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI at 1440p and researched how Cyberpunk 2077 might perform on it leading us to predict a good set of FPS results. These were, Low: 172 FPS, Medium: 136 FPS, High: 91 FPS and Ultra: 65 FPS. We then checked out Valorant which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 2405FPS, M: 1895FPS, H: 1275FPS, U: 911FPS. And another popular game was Horizon: Zero Dawn with predictions of L: 172FPS, M: 136FPS, H: 91FPS, U: 65FPS 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.
