At 4K, the Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming was 8% faster than the Founders Edition graphics card in Overwatch. Not a exactly a huge gain, and we were only able to extract another 3% performance which was pretty dismal.

This time we see a decent 11% performance gain for the G1 Gaming over the Founders Edition, and we were able to extend that to a 17% margin with our custom overclock.
