EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING Review: Dialing-In On Performance

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 - Shadow Of Mordor And The Division Benchmarks

Monolith’s surprisingly fun Orc-slaying title Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, delivers a ton of visual fidelity even at the lowest quality settings.

DirectX 12 Gaming Performance
Tom Clancy’s The Division is a gorgeous, open-world, third-person shooter developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft.

Its built-in benchmark reports average frames per second, along with a typical frames per second number, which is an average of the fastest 99% of frames. We ran the game using its DX12 code path, with in-game image quality options set to their Ultra pre-set.
