Synthetic Game Benchmarks
In the Synthetic Gaming Benchmarks section we will show a number of benchmark comparisons of PNY GeForce GTX 880 XLR8 and other comparable GPUs, using various benchmarks which come included with five popular modern PC games. This will illustrate how much performance this card has to offer. To ensure that long term performance is and not short term performance is illustrated 15 minutes of Unigine’s Valley benchmark was run to ‘warm up’ the video card. Only then were any tests run on the now warm video card.
PNY GeForce GTX 980 XLR8 4GB – Sleeping Dogs
Sleeping Dogs Gaming Benchmark
Sleeping Dogs is an open world action-adventure video game developed by United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios and published by Square Enix, released on August 2012. Sleeping Dogs has a benchmark component to it that mimics game play and an average of four runs was taken.
The settings used in the testing below are the extreme display settings and a resolution of 1920×1080 & 1440P. World density is set to extreme, Vsync disabled, high-res textures are enabled, and shadow resolution, shadow filtering, screen space ambient occlusion, and quality motion blur are all set to high.
As expected the GTX 980 XLR8 is simply a monster at 1920×1080 resolution. At this rather low resolution you can expect to see approximately a 30% improvement over a stock GTX 780 and over 7.5% improvement over a reference GTX 780Ti.
Even more impressive is at 1440P this improvement only gets bigger and the distance between a stock 780 and this stock PNY 980 is over 34% – and a 780Ti is about 10% slower. Now that is massive performance boost for a single generation!
