NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Overclocking Review


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Overclocked Testing:

Hitman (2016):

Hitman (2016) is an a stealth action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. Hitman (2016) is the sixth iteration of this series and acts as a prequel to the entire series, while also taking part after the events in Hitman: Absolution.The game was developed by IO interactive and published by Square Exix. with a release date for PC in March 2016 for the first part of the episodic content. To deliver the visuals, the game uses a modified Glacier 2 game engine. This title takes advantage of the ability to run in DX 12 mode for users who have adopted Windows 10.


  • DirectX 12
  • Level Of Detail = Ultra

  • SSAO = On
  • Shadow Maps = Ultra
  • Shadow Resolution = High






Tom Clancy's The Division:

Tom Clancy's The Division faced an uphill battle to become the highest opening day grossing title in Ubisoft's history. Built as an open-world third-person shooter video game, Ubisoft Massive developed the game with some assistance from Red Star Entertainment for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with Ubisoft taking care of the publishing. Ubisoft Massive developed and built the Snowdrop game engine specifically for The Divison due to the need for an intelligent engine to manage the dynamic global illumination, destruction, detail, and visual effects.




  • DirectX 11
  • Ultra Preset
  • Shadow Quality = High
  • Post FX AA = Off
  • Temporal AA = Supersampling
  • Snow =Yes
  • Fog = Ultra

Running in DX12 mode, the FPS margin results over the GTX 980 are pretty substantial, with a 50 FPS gap at 1920 x 1080, a 24 FPS gap at 2560 x 1440, and a 20 FPS gap at 3840 x 2160. Pretty solid results. In Tom Clancy's The Division, we see 40, 25, and 16 FPS margins over the GTX 980, showing that if you have a GTX 980, stepping up to a GTX 1080 offers a significant uptick in performance for your investment. Overclocking helps each of the cards causes, but the GTX 1080 truly steps up in these two games, delivering pretty much 100FPS performance levels at 2560 x 1440.
