By now it is pretty clear that the GX800 can match our desktop system's performance. That said we are going to check four more titles to keep those interested in GTA V, Far Cry Primal, Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3 happy. After that we will quickly check out some temperature results and get on with our conclusion.
Grand Theft Auto V was tested with the maximum quality settings enabled along with all the advanced graphic options. That said MSAA wasn’t enabled and instead we relied on FXAA. Even at 4K a single GTX 1080 was able to provide playable performance at 60fps. Enabling the second card boosted performance further to an incredible 103fps on the GX800.
Far Cry Primal isn’t exactly smooth at 4K using a single GTX 1080 with all the image quality settings maxed out. Still the GX800 did manage to match our Core i7-6700K desktop system with an average of 38fps. Incredibly with SLI enabled we saw 100% scaling as the average frame rate was boosted to 76fps on both systems.
SLI scaling in Rise of the Tomb Raider is also very strong. The GX800 went from 56fps to 103fps at 4K which is a healthy 84% performance boost. This is identical to what we saw on our desktop test system, which is awesome.
Finally, we have The Witcher 3 and no surprises here, the GX800 delivers desktop-like performance.
