NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Overclocking Review


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Overclocked Testing:

Unigine Heaven 4.0:

Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark to allow testing of DX 11 features. What sets the Heaven Benchmark apart is the addition of hardware tessellation, available in three modes – Moderate, Normal, and Extreme. Although tessellation requires a video card with DirectX 11 support and Windows Vista/7, the Heaven Benchmark also supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11, and OpenGL 4.0. Visually, it features beautiful floating islands that contain a tiny village and extremely detailed architecture.



  • 8x AA
  • Ultra
  • Tesselation = Extreme
  • Measurement = FPS






Ashes of the Singularity:

Ashes of the Singularity is a massive, real-time strategy game on a grand scale. Developed by Oxide Games and Stardock Entertainment, Ashes of the Singularity runs on the new Nitrous engine, which enables thousands of units fighting it out on-screen. It uses DirectX 12, one of the first games to use the new API, and it helps provide even more detail to battles. Ashes of the Singularity recently came out of early access development, with more content added all the time to expand the world and its story.


  • Extreme Preset





3DMark: The just-released version of Futuremark's popular 3DMark suite is designed to let a wider range of the user base make a comparative analysis of the gaming prowess of their systems from entry level PCs, to notebooks, and extreme gaming PCs.



  • Default test settings
  • Sky Diver
  • Fire Strike
  • Fire Strike Extreme
  • Fire Strike Ultra





In the Unigine Heaven 4.0 test, the GTX 1080 enjoys a significant performance margin over the GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti in all three resolutions. To be fair, it's the same story through all of the FPS performance results in every benchmark. The question is just how big a gap in performance is there between the GTX 980 and the GTX 1080? In Ashes of the Singularity, the GTX 1080 shows its DX12 performance off with a resounding thumping of the comparison cards. In 3DMark, the results again follow the same stratified pattern. Overclocking once again drives the FPS levels up another notch, making 4K gaming an actual reality with a single GPU card.
