The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition Review

Page 6 : Mass Effect: Andromeda Benchmark Results, Our Verdict & Award

At this entry-level gaming resolution, all five cards did well, delivering average frame rates in excess of 60 fps. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) and GeForce GTX 1070 are notably the only cards whose frame rates never dropped below 60 fps.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was just 5% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070, but 24% faster than the Radeon RX 480 CrossFire.

With the jump in resolution, every graphics card took a massive hit in their frame rates. But the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) registered only a slight dip in frame rate.

At this resolution, it was now 35% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070, and 63% faster than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti!

When the resolution was increased to 4K, even the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) took a large hit in its frame rate. However, it managed to deliver an average frame rate just shy of 60 fps.

At this extremely high resolution, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was 47% faster than the Radeon RX 480 CrossFire, and 93% faster than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti! Amazing performance!

 

Our Verdict & Award

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) is the ultimate gaming graphics card built on the NVIDIA GP102 GPU. It is actually a faster variant of the NVIDIA TITAN X. Both the TITAN X and the recently-launched TITAN Xp are US$ 1,200 cards designed for deep learning and artificial intelligence. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, on the other hand, is meant for gaming, and it has no real competition.

As our benchmark results show, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is in a class of its own when it comes to 4K gaming. At that resolution, it was, on average, 60% faster than GeForce GTX 107063% faster than the Radeon RX 480 CrossFire, and 80% faster than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, its predecessor.

In most games, it will deliver average frame rates in excess 60 fps even at the 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160. It does so well at 4K gaming that it would be a real shame if you don’t pair it with a sweet 4K monitor.

Thanks to the NVIDIA Pascal architecture and the 16 nm FinFET fabrication technology, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was not just much faster than its predecessor (the GeForce GTX 980 Ti), it actually ran cooler and quieter.

What is probably most amazing though is the value proposition. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) is actually faster than the NVIDIA TITAN X, but costs just over half as much. Of course, this is part of NVIDIA’s price rationalisation, designed to make their cards more competitive against the AMD Vega onslaught coming soon.

For its unchallenged performance lead and greatly improved value proposition, we think the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) deserves our Editor’s Choice Award. If 4K gaming is what you are aiming for, you can’t go wrong with this card! Congratulations, NVIDIA!
