Can my Geforce 1080 -Part of my Dino PC- -do 1080p gaming? HMMMM. It’s a difficult one. Is it up to the task, or does it look at it, do a full 1080 and walk away again?... We’ll just have to play on to find out! Thanks Philip. Yes we’re going to start this test with Deus Ex, since if we don’t do it then nobody’s going to ask for it. Now we’re going to set it to the Ultra preset but this isn’t enough- we’re going to take it further by turning the anisotropic filtering up to an eye popping 16x! Now why don’t games just set it to 16x by default? You might ask. And that’s because the impact on framerates tends to be catastrophic. But sometimes… you’ve just got to let go and embrace what you’ve become. Okay so at HD on ultra and with 16X anisotropic filtering and you can see that we’re getting at least 70 FPS at all times. Frametimes are low, there’s no tearing or quantum duplexing going on, it’s all very solid feeling around the main hub district. 4K however is out of the question even with the DX12 patch- this in my opinion is wrong. But the world doesn’t care about right or wrong. It's all about power. And right now, none of us have it. But with that being said, Deus Ex is a game that we can safely say is playable at 1080p, even with just a lowly Geforce 1080 card. Even Adam Jensen looks impressed. Why it sure did a good job there! But what about this game?... Next up: can it run Crysis 3? I set it to absolute max- and yes, that also includes an eye-gouging 16x anisotropic filtering! But can it dig it? Yes, it can, most of the time above 60 FPS though at points it drops a frame or so below it. But I have a confession to make: 4K has spoiled me. Returning to HD is a bit like trying to game on a TV screen. I think that perhaps games are approaching a level of detail where HD isn’t enough to do it justice any more. It’s as though they’re trying to cram in too many effects to too few pixels. I would much rather play this game at 4K on high than at HD on Highest. And to further add to the disappointment, I think the game’s beginning to show its age. Where there’s detail it’s great, but distant areas and high-up trees often lack the detail they’d be given in a game from 2016. Don’t get me wrong: it still looks great. But I think we should all be asking the question: ‘Can it run Crysis 4?’ before long. Hohoho. I’m going to shock you: my Minecraft account got hacked! All they did was to change my profile details, which I’ll be able to change again in a month’s time apparently. But until then GOKILLYOURSELF2 is going to be exploring the amplified world of seed 2kliksphilip. Minecraft isn’t what I’d call a demanding game. But recent updates have let you up the viewdistance -and more importantly the anisotropic filtering - to INSANE levels! So although it looks like it’s running at hundreds of FPS, if we find a nice spot to perch… …no! NO! PLEASE STOP! Urgh! After this I floated about for a bit at sub-60 FPS until it suddenly went super laggy and unplayable until I quit it. Not a good result. Well, it looks like it’s that time of the month that we’ve all been waiting for. Conclusion time. Can the Geforce 1080 do 1080p gaming? Well, as we’ve seen, from the benchmarks, in most titles it can. HOWEVER, there are still some select situations where if you have the anisotropic filtering turned too high up, it fails to hit that all important 60 FPS minimum standard. Even at HD resolutions. It seems that 2016 isn’t the year of 4K. Sadly, that’s all the time we’ve got right now. I hope you’ve liked this video.
