1080p Benchmark Performance Thoughts

If you want to hit 1080p 60FPS in Shadow of War then the older GeForce GTX 980 Ti -- then starting off this Ti Showdown article shows off the strength of the GTX 980 Ti which hits 74FPS in Shadow of War. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is still super-strong with 127FPS average, equaling the Radeon RX 5700 XT and just under the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is head and shoulders above everything else at 161FPS.

Moving onto Metro Exodus we have 40FPS average from the GTX 980 Ti, which sees the Maxwell-based car drop down to the same performance as the low-end RX 5500 XT. The GTX 1080 Ti is still taking big swings up at 74FPS average, just 2FPS shy of the RTX 2070 SUPER at 76FPS -- but the RTX 2080 Ti is the Ti champ here with 101FPS average.

Far Cry New Dawn can still be enjoyed on the GTX 980 Ti with 84FPS, but the GTX 1080 Ti pushes a huge 112FPS while the RTX 2080 Ti hits the ceiling at 115FPS. Shadow of the Tomb Raider has virtually identical results with the GTX 980 Ti hitting 82FPS, while the GTX 1080 Ti reaches 132FPS and the RTX 2080 Ti hits the ceiling of 150FPS at 1080p.
