Benchmarking Notes

Our graphics benchmarking test bed has the following specifications :

Operating System : Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit

Processor : AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor running at 3.6 GHz

Motherboard : AORUS AX370-Gaming 5

Memory : 16 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3000 memory (dual-channel)

Storage : 240 GB HyperX Savage SSD

Monitor : Dell P2415Q Ultra HD Monitor

We used the GeForce driver 382.05 for the NVIDIA graphics cards, and Radeon Software 17.5.1 for the AMD graphics cards.


3DMark DirectX 12 Benchmark (2560 x 1440)

3DMark Time Spy is the DirectX 12 benchmark in 3DMark. It supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition (best price in Amazon) did very well in this DirectX 12 benchmark. It was 53% to 64% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070, and 17% to 21% faster than the Radeon RX 480 CrossFire graphics cards!


3DMark (1920 x 1080)

For Direct 11 performance, we started testing the graphics cards using 3DMark at the entry-level gaming resolution – 1920 x 1080.

Due to the relatively low resolution, this is a CPU-limited test for many high-end graphics cards. Hence, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was only 34% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070, and just 37% faster than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Obviously, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is overkill at this resolution.


3DMark (2560 x 1440)

We then took 3DMark up a notch to the resolution of 2560 x 1440. Let’s take a look at the results!

Now you can see the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (best price in Amazon) start to shine. At this higher resolution, it was now 59% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070, and 30% faster than the Radeon RX 480 CrossFire graphics cards.


3DMark (3840 x 2160)

This is torture, even for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and the GeForce GTX 1070, but this is definitely the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s domain!

At this resolution, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was 60% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070, and 69% faster than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
