NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Review - The Fastest Gaming Graphics Card Yet

GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Hitman And Ashes Of The Singularity Performance

The latest Hitman title for 2016 once again follows Agent 47, a genetically-enhanced, cold-blooded assassin, who finds himself at the center of new missions scatted about Central Europe. But not before some drama unfolds in an ICA training facility some 20 years before the events of 2012's Hitman: Absolution. We tested the game using its DirectX 12 code path, at multiple resolutions, with all in-game options set to their maximum / Ultra values, with FXAA and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled...

The delta separating the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Titan X was super-tight in the Hitman benchmark. As you probably expected at this point though, the GeForce GTX 1080 and Radeon R9 Fury X finished well behind the leaders.

We've also got frametime comparisons with this game, between the 1080 Ti and Titan X, and saw a clear advantage for the 1080 Ti at 4K. At 1440P, however, the Titan X put up more consistent frames.

Ashes Of The Singularity
DirectX 12 Performance

Oxide's Ashes Of The Singularity offers planetary warfare on a massive scale. The game also includes one of the first DirectX 12 benchmarks. And it's not synthetic like 3DMark’s API overhead feature test, but rather a real-world representation of in-game performance using a variety of workloads. We ran the Ashes benchmark at multiple resolutions with its "Crazy" graphics preset and 4X anti-aliasing enabled to put as heavy a workload as possible on the GPUs.

We saw more of the same in the Ashes Of The Singularity benchmark. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was -- once again -- the fastest of the bunch, but the Titan X wasn't too far behind.
