Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980Ti Xtreme Gaming Graphics Card Review

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V is a visual masterpiece brimming with detail and features fairly good optimization. At 1920×1080, the graphics card performs rather well, and creates a fluid experience. The minimum frame-rate is tantalizingly close to 60 frames-per-second, which showcases the stable level of performance across various sections.

The GPU achieves a wonderful frame-rate of 71 during 1440P testing and the minimum result is within a good range. This means, in demanding sections, you should still able to able to play the game without it feeling overly jarring. Although, I’m a huge advocate of 60 frames-per-second and notice small dips quite easily. It all depends on your eyesight and familiarity with frame-rate variation. Whatever the case, this is the best minimum result we’ve seen and impressive given the extreme settings.

Once the resolution is set to 4K, the graphical demands increase at an exponential rate. Here we can see, the minimum frame-rate is unplayable and showcases the need for a dual card configuration to run games properly at 4K. Overall, the GPU’s minimum rate is great for a single card, and just edges the Inno3D GTX 980Ti Ultra DHS.
