NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1080 last month and while our initial review covered the basics, as well as benchmarks at 1080p/1440p/4K, we wanted to do more. I was going to do some OC testing, but I really wanted to spend some time playing games at the OC levels and then burn it in so I could push onto some benchmarks. So for now, we're going to be doing some triple 4K benchmarks at the video card busting resolution of 11,520 x 2160.
If you thought 2560x1440 or even 3840x2160 was hard on a video card or two, then you'll want to see how the GeForce GTX 1080 handles 11,520 x 2160. Running 3 x 4K monitors isn't an easy task, but with the right amount of desk space and the right hardware, man is it a blast to play on. We don't have the hardware to comfortably play games at 60FPS+ at 11,520 x 2160 - so that's what we're to see - how far away are we from ~8K @ 60FPS average on 1-2 video cards?
We've been doing 11,520 x 2160 testing for a while now, with one of the last ones being the 4-way AMD Radeon R9 Fury X cards in Crossfire, which didn't turn out so well. We thought we'd re run our testing with some new games, fresh drivers, and the new GeForce GTX 1080.
How Many Pixels Are We Rendering?
11,520 x 2160 consists of 3 x 4K monitors, with each monitor running 3840 x 2160, combining all of the resolutions together for the massive 11,520 x 2160 resolution. But just how many pixels are we rendering here, versus 1080p, 1440p, 4K and even consoles?
