Still remember the height of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 release? After all, this graphics card was the queen of performance for a good long months, until the release of the GTX 1080 Ti, which in fact still delivers pure and hard performance today. (At the end of the cable, it offers performance very similar to the RTX 2080)
Which ultimately raises a question… Is the GeForce GTX 1080 still a quality graphics card in 2019?
So while GTX 1080 is no longer the supreme queen it was in 2016, it is still an excellent gaming graphics card. Incidentally, it's perfect for playing undemanding titles at 1440p 144hz, or the latest and heaviest games on the market at 1440p 60Hz or 1080p 144Hz.
It's a component that even makes it possible to do some 4K jokes on some older games.
Editor's Note: I have a friend who bought a GTX 1080 at the time (2016), but in recent months has been completely past to change graphics card. To what I say, “let it be quiet, the GTX 1080 arrives and surplus for your Full HD @ 144Hz monitor.” But I really have a hard time convincing the boy.
However, it's not just your fault for giving AMD or NVIDIA money… People really think the old high-end 2016 is now useless. Which is a wrong and dangerous thought for the consumer.
In short, the new NVIDIA graphics cards didn't bring a big performance jump to the table. His focus was more on implementing new features like Ray Tracing, and of course, increasing GPU energy efficiency.
But as RTX is still a performance shame, and its super limited support in the market… It's easy to come to the conclusion that if you happen to have a GTX 1080 on your PC, it might be a good idea to wait for the new wave of cards. expected to arrive in 2020.
