Benchmarks: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, The Division, Hitman
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was tested using the very high quality preset and here the 1080 Ti spat out 113 fps on average making it a fraction faster than the Titan XP. Moving to 1440p it held the lead over the Titan while providing a 23% greater average frame rate when compared to the original 1080.
Those wanting to play Mankind Divided at 4K will likely have to tweak a few settings as a 35 fps minimum isn't exactly desirable, not when spending this kind of money. In any case at this resolution the 1080 Ti should be at least 25% faster than the standard 1080.
The Division is very demanding on the GPU, as most games are, and here we see that even at 1080p the 1080 Ti and Titan XP will dip just below 80 fps at times. Still with an average of over 120 fps it goes without saying that gameplay was extremely smooth. Performance remains very strong at 1440p with over 60 fps rendered at all times.
Here we have another game that will require either two GPUs for a smooth 4K experience or a reduction in quality settings. The 53 fps average is actually very good but at times the frame rate does drop as low as 31 fps in our test.
For those of you new to the channel I should point out that in some games, certain titles that support DirectX 12, I test Nvidia using DX11 and AMD using DX12. I have discussed why this is in the past so I won't go over it again. Basically AMD performs better using DX12 and Nvidia using DX11, there is no reason for a GeForce owner to use DX12 in a game that sends performance backwards for no reason. So I test the API gamers will actually use.
So using DX11 the GTX 1080 Ti spits out 130 fps on average making it a fraction faster than the Titan XP. Moving to 1440p the Ti was good for 120 fps on average and we are starting to move away from the CPU bottleneck here.
Now at 4K the average frame rate is reduced to 77 fps with a minimum of 64 fps and once again the GTX 1080 Ti performs very similar to the Titan XP, just a whisker slower. This also meant it was 29% faster than the GTX 1080.
