F1 2018 Benchmarked: TITAN Xp in SLI pushes 8K at 60FPS

F1 2018 Engine & SLI Support

 

F1 2018 has a great built-in benchmark that lets you get results in repeatable fashion as I tried running the various tests 3-5 times over to see if the averages would change, and if they did it was by 1-2FPS max. At the highest 8K resolution benchmark, the results were spot on every time.

I chose to run the Australia track with heavy rain enabled, with a 3-lap run of the benchmark with the FPS counter displayed. I tried other benchmark runs with different cities and weather, with the clear skies option seeing a 3-5% performance improvement. The detailed weather animation is much harder on the system, so I kept that enabled for all testing.

 

F1 2018 has an official SLI profile from NVIDIA inside of their latest GeForce 399.07 WHQL drivers, so I ran the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in SLI as well as the higher-end TITAN Xp cards in SLI. AMD has no CrossFire profile for F1 2018, so multi-GPU testing with the RX 500 and RX Vega series did not take place. This is the reason why there are no AMD cards in the SLI benchmarks.

 

 

I did however test the Radeon RX 570, RX 580, RX Vega 56, RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition graphics cards in F1 2018 at 1920x1080, 2560x1440, 3840x2160, and 3440x1440 - with those results coming very soon. We also tested all of these cards, including all of the cards you see in the benchmarks on our current GPU test bed specs: an Intel Core i7-8700K @ 5GHz, while our other CPU is the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. These results are right around the corner... for now, 7680x4320.
