Is my GTX 1080 under-performing ?

Hello !

I've recently put togheter a new PC but I am not that pleased with it's performances.

Here is a benchmark:



Also, in Battlefield 1, I never go past 80 fps. The settings are at ULTRA and running at 1440p 144hz. I have no VSync, no SSAO and if I try to play in DirectX12 it crashed after a couple of minutes. I've seen others on YouTube go over 120 fps with the same settings and with a GTX 1080.

This is the PC:

Motherboard: ASUS STRIX Z270E GAMING
CPU: Intel Kaby Lake, Core i7 7700K 4.20GHz
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H115i Extreme Performance
Case: NZXT H440 New Edition (White)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB DDR4 3000MHz CL15 White LED Dual Channel Kit
HDD: WD Black 1TB SATA3 7200RPM 64MB
SSD: Samsung 850 PRO 256 GB
PSU: Corsair RMx Series RM750x 750W, 80+ Gold
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 G1 GAMING 8GB DDR5X 256-bit
Monitor Gaming LED ASUS MG279Q

  1. UP ? I'm bumping this because I am concerned about this. I didn't find something similar on this site. Everyone with a GTX 1080 has different problems.
  2. Are you using GPU Tweak?
    Probably not since you're using a gigabyte.

    Wow, we have quite a few similar parts. I was just troubleshooting mine the other night because I thought mine wasn't doing so hot. I'll see what I can offer you.

    Do you overclock your CPU?
    What temp does your card run at?

    >Download 3D Mark and bench it with that. Tell me your graphics score.<

    No.I used XTREME GAMING ENGINE to slightly overlcock my GPU.
  4. Ok. I edited my post a couple of times, sorry if it's confusing.

    Definitely try downloading 3dmark and tell me what your score is. Kill all background apps so it benches at it's full capability.
    Time Spy benchmark is what I'm going for here.

    Sooooooooo ?
  6. No, that's performing pretty well. That's actually performing a bit better than mine. What's your core clock on it?

    But still doesn't answer the question: Why do I have so little FPS in Battlefield 1 ?
  8. it depends on the area and the game mode. I'm running at 1440p UW (3440x1440 100Hz) And there is one area of the game I have trouble staying over 60fps on Ultra at 100% render scale.

    Render scale plays a HUGE part in BF1 performance as well. If you want to hit 144fps IN ALL AREAS I would scale it down to 75% and turn off AA. Some areas I can play without ever budging from 100fps (V-Sync on) and other areas I will dip into the high 70's at times with my settings (Ultra 75% render scale, DX11, Fullscreen mode, V-Sync ON) Also have a Zotac AMP Extreme 1080. So out of the box mine is OC'd a little bit more than yours. 2025-2050MHz typically, 10800 MHz memory.

    In operations I'm usually sitting between 80-100 fps as well depending on how much is going on.

    In contrast I saw a FE 1080 (1440UW) Benchmark where the guy was having trouble staying over 70 outdoors with 50% render scale. It's just a really hardcore game.
  9. So your card is performing admirably, and he hits on your point about Battlefield specifically. Hopefully that answers your question.

    You do have to keep in mind I am talking 3440X1440p and not 2560x1440, theres a solid 30fps difference there. (I can check for sure when I get home but typically you can add 30 to my fps and get about what a standard 1440p would/should get) There is about a 2-3 fps difference between our cards as well.

    In general (assuming your settings are similar to mine) you should be hitting a solid 90-120 fps in Operations and most areas of the game, but you should probably be sitting at 144fps in other areas (again, with my settings), if you are using what I think you are using (AA off, Render scale 125% [auto-detect 1080 default]) you will be sitting about right where you should be be at about 80fps in Multiplayer, Like I said its a beast of a game.

    I've done extensive testing, dropping the render scale to 75% vs anything higher, and keeping the settings on Ultra, yield little to no graphics quality degradation, and yield FAR higher FPS (50 in the most extreme cases of the game), Sadly if you want to hit over 120 you're going to have to compromise quality.

    The videos in question may not be the EXACT same settings as you, their hardware may be overclocked more than you, or you might have driver issues.

    Here's something that shows my point, granted it is a BETA video but you will see just how crazy this game is;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uF0AUJu4QfU

    In the video you can see he is running a 1080p 144Hz monitor with V-sync off (does little to nothing in BF1) Render scale at 50% settings at Ultra. And then and only then is he able to get a stable 120-up to 150-fps.

    Running at 1440p you can easily get a 20-30 fps drop from those settings, increasing the render scale to 100% at 1440p you will see framerates at 60-80 as you are describing if even that.

    If I can I will do some testing to see what the highest fps I can get on my 2560x1440 monitor later today and let you know what kind of cutbacks I need to do to hit 120fps.
  12. That Render Scale thingy helped a lot. At 100% I got around 100fps and at 80% I had ~120fps.

    Also, Assassins Creed Syndicate crashed when the GPU was manually OC. And as you saw from the picture above, that OC was barely there.
  13. AC:S can crash for A LOT of reasons. Probably a software issue, not a hardware issue, maybe interfering with the Gigabyte software you have to OC the card. I have to tweak my MSI:AB settings just so it will play, it is no easy task and requires a lot of tweaking but I almost guarantee its a software issue there.
