MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G Review: Blazing-Fast And Custom Cooled
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G - Shadows 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. So, to maximize the eye-candy on these high-end graphics cards, we ran the game’s Ultra quality benchmark routine at a couple of resolutions, topping out at 4K -- excuse us, 3840x2160 for the sticklers out there. All of the game's graphics-related options were enabled, along with FXAA and Camera Blur.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
As expected, the GP102-based 1080 Ti Gaming X is far in the lead. NVIDIA has stated the 1080 Ti will enjoy a 35% performance gain over the 1080, in many of today's demanding games and applications. The large leads we're seeing here do nothing but solidify their claims.
Tom Clancy's The Division
The trend continues with The Division, where the MSI Gaming X is the clear leader. Pushing 60FPS at 4K in this title is nothing short of impressive.
