We tested at 1440P and 4K, if the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 will handle 1440p and 4K you have no worries about 1080p.

Ashes Of The Singularity


Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.


At 1440P in Ashes of the Singularity we got a healthy respect for the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 and it produced 68.2 FPS which should be enough to drive 3D easily.



We ramped it up to 4K gaming and our eyes about fell out of our heads when we saw 54.6 FPS on a game running in 4K. The GTX 980 generation of video cards struggled with 4K but we feel confidant that the 10XX generation is going to handle 4K with surprising agility.

Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4A

Explore a vast range of experiences that allow you to play your way. Be the lone wolf to take control of your own destiny or work together in tight-knit five-man squads to strike as a team. New maps, more vehicles, weapons and destruction allow you to create your own path and play to your strengths. Absolutely nothing compares to the sheer scale and scope of Battlefield 4.



Battlefield 4 has become a mainstay of a lot of video card testing and at 4K the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 shoved 109.3 FPS in our face leaving us slack-jawed.


Cranking the heat up to 4k resolution the GTX 1080 FTW rewarded us with 55.2 FPS and indeed most of the cards gave us playable frame rates but none with the solid authority of the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW.



Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.


GTA 5 at 1440P with very high settings and 4x MSAA presented no challenge to the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 and the card turned out a more than respectable 85.3 FPS.


At 4K GTA 5 put a little crunch on the FPS but the GTX 1080 FTW chucked out 44.5 FPS with no frame flipping or stuttering. Motoring around the corners and pushing the various vehicles was a breeze that happened in real-time speed. At times we found ourselves having to pause and figure out exactly where we were headed because the game was flying by so fast.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.

  1. 9.9/10? is one of yall missing a pinky or something?

  2. Uh oh, page 4 has a typo causing the Motherboard’s Amazon link to be dead.

  3. You make a little mistake at the length. The value is not 167mm but probably 267mm like you wrote beforce.

  5. i purchased E.V.G.A gtx 1080 ACX 3.0 ..i dont have Driver Cd plz help if i download from the official website it says not compatible to your windos …plz help

  6. lol bad caps, exploding VRMs, having to do modification to your card yourself, i think this article should not just be reevaluated, it should be removed and replaced something that resembles the truth!

    • skarsi, you dont have to do it yourself. If you tell them you don’t want to do it yourself, they will send you a new one already done, and when you get the new one, just send them the old one back. I did mine, because I wanted to see the inner workings and take it apart. If I broke it, they would still send me a new one, per their c.s.r. They took responsibility for what their cards were doing, and get an A++++ from me. Where else can you go where they tell you that yeah it’s under warranty, if you want to take it apart and fix it yourself, we will send you all the supplies, but dont worry, if you mess it up, we will send you a new modded card?
