8K gaming really isn't for the faint of heart, as you're spending probably close to $10,000 on your gaming PC... but is it worth it? Well, you can't run many games at 8K anywhere near 60FPS on Very High/Ultra detail, as you can see in the handful of benchmarks we've run.
Games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds chugs beyond crazy at 8K on Ultra graphics, and without SLI or CF, you're really stuck out in the middle of nowhere without gas. Stranded, on a performance-less beach with single-digit FPS. Even the $2400 worth of TITAN Xp graphics cards in SLI couldn't do 60FPS without dropping down to Low/Medium graphics in games.
But then you see a 100% performance gain with SLI in Shadow of Mordor on both GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN Xp cards in SLI, and you sit back and wonder: is 8K 60FPS really that far away? If you had 4 x TITAN Xp cards in SLI and had close to 100% scaling - you should reach 60FPS in most games that have great SLI scaling, at Ultra graphics in 8K. It would be glorious.
For now, the 8K benchmarking continues... as we find games that scale well with SLI (AMD needs to hurry up and have CF working on RX Vega... like, now) and then we'll be cooking with gas. I'm in for the long-run and remember... this is just part two of our 8K benchmarking content. If you want more games tested, let us know in the comments.
