The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder's Edition Review: Bigger Pascal for Better Performanceby Ryan Smith on March 9, 2017 9:00 AM EST
Still one of our most punishing benchmarks 3 years later, Crysis 3 needs no introduction. Crytek’s DX11 masterpiece, Crysis 3’s Very High settings still punish even the best of video cards, never mind the rest. Along with its high performance requirements, Crysis 3 is a rather balanced game in terms of power consumption and vendor optimizations. As a result it can give us a good look at how our video cards stack up on average, and later on in this article how power consumption plays out.
Crysis 3 will vex cards at 4K for at least one more generation. At 48.9fps, the GTX 1080 Ti is the fastest of the bunch, and is starting to approach the 60fps mark. Still, even with a 36% performance lead over the GTX 1080 and a 77% performance lead over the GTX 980 Ti, 60fps is a bit more than any one card can handle.
