Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Review |

DirectX 12 - Tom Clancy's The Division


In December 2016, Massive Entertainment updated Tom Clancy’s: The Division to include a DirectX12 rendering path as an optional feature.  We benchmarked the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, GeForce GTX 1070 and Radeon R9 FuryX which produced the following results:

Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - The Division - DX12 - 1080p

Again, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is showing excellent interaction with lower-level APIs providing an 18fps improvement over DirectX 11 – this can be partly attributed to alleviating the CPU-bottleneck associated with this resolution.  Also, as before, the GP104-based GeForce GTX 1070 shows no improvement with the lower-level API over DirectX 11’s result.  As expected, the Radeon R9 FuryX enjoys a nice 11fps improvement over its DirectX 11 API resut.

The Division - DX12 - 1440p

With the CPU bottleneck not providing a limiting factor, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti‘s result at 1440p provides a much more modest +4fps improvement.  The GeForce GTX 1070 actually loses 1fps and places it into last place behind the Radeon R9 FuryX which manages to improve its result by a respectable 7fps at this resolution.


  1. Now that’s a damned fine review Mr T. 😉
    You make me regret going with the EVGA 1080 Ti SC (Superclocked) GPU after reading this. 🙂
