Something wrong with my GTX1080?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

After looking today's TL where gtx 1650-level cards are considered for 1080p, I asked and was said what GTX1080 (bought used) should be overkill for that resolution even in triple-A titles and commonly used for 1440p gameplay:

But my GTX struggle to have stable 75fps in games (for 75Hz monitor, w/o freesync/g-sync) :/

Games I play often:

AC:odissey - everything at maximum, except AA (set at high) and clouds (set at medium). In bench I get ~68fps avg and 28fps min (and if play with cpu oc, I can get 69fps avg/35fps min)

Witcher - everything at maximum, capped to 75, but rarely, in heavy scenes or at some combat's starts fps can drop all way down to 55-54).

Firestrike - total score 17100, graphic score 21700

Time Spy - total score 7110, graphic score 7390

 

CPU - R5 1600X

32GB DDR4 3200

ssd samsung 960pro.

Max temps on cpu and gpu 50-55 degrees.

 

Do I miss something to achieve stable 60-75fps in 1920x1080 resolution? :/

Witcher is a very taxing game. i only can speak from my expirience with my old 1070, and eveything maxed out incuding hairworks it brought my old pc to its knees.

if you click "compare results online" you can see what results other people with similar specs have. maybe that helps you to determine if something is off

Need to test it to actually try and compare. Cpu plays a big part. Can’t just go off other people’s results. My card get 160 or so at 1080p in black ops 4 pretty much maxed out. But isn’t graphically demanding. 

 

I consider the 1080 a 1080p card. Quite old and just enough to get by in some games. It was good for 1440p in some older titles though.

It's around the average for given specs.

Its those games. Witcher depending on the settings can cause your game to crawl, same with Assassins Creed. You chose probably two of the most unforgiving games.

i thought so...

i cant say a thing on AC, but TW3 maxed out is tough to run.

also your Ryzen 5 1600X might be a bit of a bottleneck there.

 

i use a 4K display with a R5 3600 and a 2070 to drive it, and i came to accept that 30-50fps tops is what i get when i max out everyting in sightseeing games like TW3, Tomb Raider etc. and for competitive games i usually lower the resolution  / use another display.

I used a GTX 1080 with a i7 2600k to run a 3440 X 1440 60hz monitor. All the AAA games off the time ran over 60fps but not much more.

 

Todays AAA titles are much harder to run so 1440p 75hz would be about right.

 

I did get about the same numbers as you did when I replayed Witcher 3 back in 2016 at 1440p. I think anything over 60fps is a plus in that game.

 

AC Odyssey is very hard to run. I basically gave up on 4k gaming because of it and I use a 2080 ti.

Well, looks like game I ask too much to my system, it's just games, what I play the most are too heavy.

What model of GTX 1080 do you have ? FE / Custom cooler ?

Have you overclocked your GPU ?

Your CPU isn't bad in any way but it could be holding you back a little bit as early Ryzen didn't perform as well in games as Intel. 

I am running i5 8600k OC 5.0ghz with a GTX 1080.

I have overclocked my GPU core with +125mhz and the memory +600mhz (over the standard OC)

A couple of months ago I played (for the second time) Witcher 3 and I averaged about 90-120 fps (sometimes in the low 80s for short periods) in 1440p.

3Dmark Fire Strike 20107

 

Your mobo Asrock AB350 ITX does support Ryzen 3000 series if you update the BIOS so that could be an idea for an extra upgrade ?.

Thanks to everyone. After some test I finished by tuning the videocard to 1940Mhz@0.875V. Seems like for an unknown reason clockspeed was not stable. Now I get steady 75fps in Witcher 3 (V-sync enabled). AC:O still struggle with drops to 39fps, but as I understood it is because of poor game optimization (or drm?).

 

After that I finished by testing with WoT encore and had no fps drops in any settings below 75fps.
