Several days ago we shared with you that we had managed to overclock GTX 1080 GameRock Premium to the maximum frequency of 2139 MHz (2113 MHz stable). We would like to make it clear that in doing so the GPU was being air-cooled and that we hadn’t done any manipulations on the chip so as to increase its performance. Additionally, the fan did not engage its full potential, and yet we managed to achieve better results than those of the last two GPU models we reviewed – this says enough about the solid Palit cooler.
After we shared this GPU’s score in the 3DMark benchmarks, today we would like to talk about the average number of frames per second we registered in some of the most intriguing games currently on the market – Tomb Raider, F1 2015, Hitman, GTA V and Shadow of Mordor. Before displaying the results, we should note that the drivers used for these tests are ver. 368.81, and the remaining components of our configuration are the familiar MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon (motherboard) and Intel Core i7-5820K (the CPU was ticking at base frequencies).
