RageQuitters Reviews – ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080

DirectX 11 - Tom Clancy's The Division

Tom Clancy’s The Division is an online action-RPG set in an immersive & realistic urban open world.

Everything starts on Black Friday, when a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and society starts to collapse into chaos. You are humanity’s last hope: a member of The Division, a unit of sleeper agents activated to save what remains.

While we hate to coin an NVIDIA term, this truly is the way this game was meant to be played.  Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 absolutely transforms The Division on Ultra from a ‘just amazing looking game’ to one that is ‘so smooth and realistic that it completely sucks you in immersion wise’.  This is another game responsible for sinking a lot (too much?) of our review time as we were totally mesmerized by the fluidity of experience that unfolded before us.  Even at 1080p, the GTX 1080 continues the 2:1 framerate ratio trend.

Moving on to 1440p, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 loses around 25% of its performance, however, it manages to maintain an impressive 75 FPS overall.  The other cards in our benchmark begin to struggle at Ultra slipping down to the 40 FPS or lower mark – some image quality sacrifices are needed on the other cards to maintain a more respectable framerate at this resolution.

    The HAF-X is ancient. Cases have come a long way over the years and personally I don’t understand why you would even test in a HAF-X.

      Thanks for the comment Buddy.

      I wouldn’t call the HAF-X ‘ancient’ – it is a high-end gaming case from 2011 with excellent airflow and should have plenty of space for most GPUs.

      Unfortunately our budget isn’t endless and we couldn’t just rebuild our test system for the purposes of the review.

      This section in the article was included more of a highlight to check your case as the card’s width extends beyond a ‘standard’ PCI-E card’s regular dimensions; especially with certain motherboards.
