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

8K Benchmarks

 

Here we go, running all of our NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series graphics cards, as well as the TITAN Xp all at 7680x4320. Not only that, but we've run the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in SLI as well as the TITAN Xp in SLI. Keep in mind the TITAN Xp SLI cards would cost $2400 in total... just to give some perspective against the GTX 1080 Ti in SLI which should cost under $1400.

Here we can see that a single GeForce GTX 1080 Ti can provide 32FPS average at 8K, enough for it to be considered better-than-console performance in terms of frames per second, except with a blistering 7680x4320 native resolution. I wouldn't recommend anything less than 60FPS for all gaming (if the game is not locked to 30FPS, and we're on a PC not a console).

 

8K 30FPS isn't enough in my opinion, so what is next? Well, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in SLI pushing 56FPS average is a huge achievement, as it's a 75% increase in performance from the single GTX 1080 Ti. The slightly higher-end TITAN Xp graphics cards in SLI resulted in 3FPS more, for a near-perfect 59FPS average - a 73.5% increase in performance over the single TITAN Xp.

 

 

Remember that we ran F1 2018 on Ultra details (minus AA) so reducing the detail to Medium would net more FPS, but I didn't do that as the 8K display has a native 60Hz refresh rate. There's not much use pushing higher than 60FPS, but I do prefer hitting over 60FPS minimum to ensure you never drop below 60FPS. I wouldn't recommend gaming on an 8K monitor right now because of the cost, but if you have one and can use it for gaming - or have enough spare cash to 'just buy it' (this ain't not GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, eh eh) - then sure, you want 60 FPS at 8K.

 

SLI cards in either GTX 1080 Ti or TITAN Xp are the only cards you'd use for this - except for the fact the next-gen GeForce RTX 20 series are right around the corner. We've run this benchmark at 8K preparing for the new GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, so we'll be adding them to this list - as well as NVLink results. It would be amazing to breach 100FPS average at 8K with two GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards in NVLink. Oh boy.
