The Witcher 3 (DirectX 11)
Played in a third-person perspective, players control protagonist Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a witcher, who sets out on a long journey through the Northern Kingdoms. In the game, players battle against the world's many dangers using swords and magic, while interacting with non-player characters and completing side quests and main missions to progress through the story. The game was met with critical acclaim and was a financial success, selling over 6 million copies in six weeks. The game won multiple Game of the Year awards from various gaming publications, critics, and game award shows, including the Golden Joystick Awards, The Game Awards, Game Developers Choice Awards, and SXSW Gaming Awards. –Wikipedia
Settings used for The Witcher 3
This game still exhibits more frame time spikes than any other game we test, but the GTX 1080 Ti generates the best average frame rate with the lowest frame time variance when tested at 2560×1440.
At 4K those frame time spikes are much less noticeable, both in our graphs and in game play. The GTX 1080 Ti just barely edges out the performance of the Titan X but is a huge leap ahead (40%) when compared to the GTX 1080!

This table presents the above data in a more basic way, focusing only on the average FPS, so keep that in mind.
That power draw is much
That power draw is much smarter when it come to repartition than the mess that was stock RX480 at launch. Still, I’d wait for a dual 8pin version from OEM!
I’m curious how you measure
I’m curious how you measure power through PCI-E. Measuring voltage is easy enough, do you use a precision resistor and op-amp to measure the current?
Hey Ryan, just wondering if
Hey Ryan, just wondering if you could share the exact settings you used for the unigine heaven bench? It says 1440p Ultra, but what about tessellation (I imagine that’s maxed out, of course) or more importantly, antialiasing? Only wondering because compared to your 980 score, mine is a few fps lower with 8xAA, though my card is heavily OC’d and scores significantly higher in 3DMark. Just trying to get a perfect-as-possible comparison 🙂
Any word on wether that
Any word on wether that display port adapter is active or passive?
Get a new monitor that has
Get a new monitor that has DisplayPort 1.2 or higher. Problem solved. Why would you waste money buying an adapter for an older, inferior monitor?
I have 4 displays, I’d like
I have 4 displays, I’d like to use all of them and am wondering whether I’d need to buy another adapter or use the one supplied with the card. What kind of pleb only runs one display? Do you even know how to PC Master Race?
Meh, my Titan X performs a
Meh, my Titan X performs a bit better as it will hit 2100Mhz on the GPU. The only real advantage here is the price point. For me, it’s a ‘no thanks’. I’ll wait for Volta to be released this fall 😉

Same settings as the review
In game benchmark always stays at around 90 FPS and no more
Any idea why ?
