EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING Review, Unleash The Beast!!! (11G-P4-6696-KR)

Test Rig & Setup

For the test platform, we went with the Intel 6700K on the Asus Maximus VIII Extreme with Kingston HyperX Savage running at 3000MHz CL 15. We are running an EKWB Triple Radiator cooling solution on the CPU to make sure we don’t get any throttling on the CPU. The operating system is Windows 10 with updates disabled. We make three runs at each test then average those three runs and report the results here. If we hit a run that we consider being far away from the norm we dismiss that result and run a 4th test. While the 6700K is imminently overclockable we are running tests at 4.5 GHz and a triple radiator to keep it from throttling. Once you reach the kinds of speed the 6700K generates overclocking is an afterthought and an afterthought that really isn’t needed but since the enthusiast community generally OC’s we went ahead and ran testing on all the cards with the same OC. We want to see Pascal and the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 GAMING iCX perform as intended.

  1. Those results are pointless. Nothing to compare them with. Why there are no other 1080ti in the graphs? Why there’s no titan cards?
    Compare it with other 1080ti and titans and than we can have come common ground to check if that FTW3 is worth buying or not.

  2. ….Or you know, you could thank them for reviewing the card (thanks BTW) and compare this review to the million other reviews of the other 1080ti’s. Or you can whine and sound like some entitled infant. Or you could simply make a suggestion without coming across as a complete douche.

  3. I’m considering upgrading from the GTX 1080 FTW, so this review is exactly what I was hoping to see. Thanks for your work!

  4. Hello,

    Thanks for your review!

    What are these numbers? Is it max, average FPS? What were exactly your GTA settings (you just write very high / AA 4x)? Did you activated and maxed all the options (Long shadows / High resolution shadows …) in the Advanced Graphics menu? Did you use the benchmark included in the game?

    I’m asking all these questions because after reading your review I decided to buy this GPU and I’m far from your results (i7 4770k @4.2ghz / MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING / Corsair Vengeance 16 GB DDR3 @1866Mhz / EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2).

    Thanks again and have a nice day.

    • What results are you getting?

      On my system (7700K @ 5GHZ / FTW3 / Z270 GAMING M7 / G.SKILL RIPJAWS V 3000MHZ / SAMSUNG 850 PRO SSD) I get an average of 99 – 120 @ 1440p with the following settings.

      In the GRAPHICS section, *everything* is maxed except for:
      FXAA, set to ON.
      MSAA, set to 4X.
      TXAA, set to OFF.
      Grass, set to HIGH.

      In the ADVANCED GRAPHICS section, everything is set to ON except for:
      Frame Scaling, set to OFF.
      Extended Distance Scaling, set to 40%.
      Extended Shadows Distance, set to 40%.

      In grassy areas the FPS drops, as you might expect, considerably to around 65 FPS.

  5. I just installed this card and my screen is doing the flashing issue and yes I installed the latest drivers. Any suggestions?

  6. Try moving the card one slot down on the motherboard. Sometimes the backplate touches a ram bank clip and can cause flashing.
