NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 GPU benchmarked at Triple 4K (11,520 x 2160)

By: Anthony Garreffa | NVIDIA GeForce GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Jun 7, 2016 4:06 pm

Coming Soon: 8K Testing

 

I seriously love pushing technology to its limits, with my new obsession moving away from overclocking the video card itself, and into higher and higher resolutions like 11,520 x 2160. Triple 4K displays are totally not common, but it gives us a great look into the future of GPUs and the huge resolutions on their way.

 

With 4K 120Hz displays being a reality thanks to the DP1.4 connector on the GeForce GTX 1080, we're needing more and more power than ever before to drive these new displays and high refresh rates. Moving past 4K, the new Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 also supports 8K 60Hz displays - which are going to push the cards, and games to their limits.

Far Cry Primal is a game built on the impressive Dunia Engine 2 with wide open, beautiful environments. It might look stunning, but the performance is actually quite good - but most cards will be stressed at 1440p, and especially so at 4K and beyond.

 

You can buy Far Cry Primal at Amazon.

We recently changed over to Metro: Last Light Redux, with developer 4A Games making the Redux version of Metro: Last Light the 'definitive' version of the game. Redux had a fresh coat of paint on the already impressive 4A Engine, and it really pushes our GPUs to their limits.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of the most graphically intensive games we test, with Monolith using their own Lithtech engine to power the game. When cranked up to maximum detail, it will chew through your GPU and its VRAM like it's nothing.

Tomb Raider is still such a gorgeous game, with developer Crystal Dynamics using their own 'Foundation' engine to build Lara Croft into the new world. One of the best parts about Tomb Raider is the absolutely stellar multi-GPU scaling, so this is an important test to see how well our NVIDIA GeForce SLI and AMD Radeon Crossfire setups scale.

 

You can buy Tomb Raider at Amazon.
