RageQuitters Reviews – ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080

DirectX 11 - Dirt 3

In DiRT 3 Complete Edition, you’ll race iconic cars representing 50 years of off-road motorsport across three continents – from the forests of Michigan to the infamous roads of Finland and the national parks of Kenya. You’ll also express yourself in the stunning Gymkhana mode, inspired by Ken Block’s incredible freestyle driving event, and take on other modes including Rallycross, Trailblazer and Landrush. Powered by Codemasters’ award-winning EGO Engine, DiRT 3 Complete Edition features Flashback to rewind time, genre-leading damage and you can take on all game modes in split-screen and competitive online multiplayer.

Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX1080 - Dirt3 - 1080p

Dirt 3 is now several years old and represents the ‘oldie’ in our benchmark suite (especially at 1080p) but shows a decent range of results and exaggerated framerate spreads to help with comparison purposes.  It comes as no surprise that the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 absolutely annihilates this benchmark with a maximum framerate exceeding the 200 FPS mark.  All of our cards perform very well and deliver a AAA gaming experience.  Let’s see if 1440p can bring them down to earth…

Yet again, you will find your CPU holding the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 back.  Switching up to 1440p virtually keeps the framerates identical to 1080p.  Our other cards wane slightly but not by much (even the Radeon R9 280X holding nearly 100fps average FPS at 1440p) with the Radeon R9 290 and GeForce GTX 970 being a dead-heat.

    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.
