Nvidia GTX 1080 Benchmarks with DirectX 12 – Ashes of Singularity
While the reveal of Nvidia GTX 1080 and 1070 has been highly exciting thanks to the proposed bump ups in terms of power and performance, the reveal itself concluded without specifics when it comes to those who look towards benchmarks.
However, it didn’t take long before a video game known for putting graphics cards to task, Ashes of Singularity was used for benchmarking, and now we have all the variations of different graphical settings of the cards showing us how much juice you can push out of them.
Nvidia GTX 1080 Benchmarks
Most of the cards that the Nvidia GTX 1080 has been put up on benchmarking databases are overclocked dual card setups. However, the video we are sharing with you will deal with all the variations extensively. Check it out below.
It is worthy of noting here that GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 will be capable of Asynchronous Compute suggesting that Nvidia cards will finally be able to get the boost up from switching to DirectX 12 like AMD did in previous experiments with Ashes of Singularity.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Benchmarks at Crazy Settings running 1080p show performance competing with dual GTX 980 Ti at the same setup and the same game variants as well. There is a major gain for GTA 1080 in there.
Move on to Extreme Settings at 1080p, and you will see the new graphics card reaching a score of 7200 which compares with 7300 of AMD Radeon Pro Duo. The frame rates are also nearly the same with Nvidia touching 74 FPS and AMD touching 75 FPS.
At this setting, Fury X and GTX 980 Ti lag behind 1000 points even when overclocked. Similarly the frame rates fall to the range of 60.
At High Settings, AMD Radeon Pro Duo is again the only card coming at par with it at 9000 points and 91 FPS that compares to 8900 and 90 FPS of Nvidia GTX 1080.
If you want to compare with R9 Fury X or R9 390X, you will have to go with multi-GPUs. Last but not the least, the test reveals that an overclocked GTX 980 Ti will still lag behind 1000 points in score and about 10 frames.
