jdreyer, you'll be happy to note the 1080 Ti
performs very well when compared to the newer generation Geforce 2070 and Radeon RX 5700 XT cards.
Gears 5 - "The GTX 1080 Ti dominated the 2070 Super and 5700 XT, both newer GPUs averaged 76 fps at 1440p while the Pascal GPU pushed on to average 88 fps. The 1080 Ti was also 14% faster than the 2070 Super at 4K and 25% faster than the 5700 XT."
War Thunder - "here the 1080 Ti edged out the 2070 Super by a 13% margin at 1440p, though both delivered similar 1% low performance. The 1080 Ti also blew away the 5700 XT by a 34% margin and we see a similar thing at 4K, despite similar 1% low performance."
World of Tanks - "plays very well on the GTX 1080 Ti, here the Pascal GPU was 15% faster than the 2070 Super and 24% faster than the 5700 XT. That's a solid result for the older 1080 Ti, though frame rates were high with all GPUs at 1440p using maxed out settings. The 4K result was more impressive, 94 fps on average from the 1080 Ti enabled an extremely smooth gaming experience."
The Division 2 - "the 1080 Ti for example was 13% faster than the 5700 XT at 1440p and 15% faster at 4K. The 1080 Ti also edged out the 2070 Super at 1440p, but matched it at the 4K resolution."
Fornite - "In Fortnite we see the 1080 Ti outclassing both the 2070 Super and 5700 XT at both 1440p and 4K. At the 4K resolution it was 14% faster than the 2070 Super, so a pretty handy win here."
PUBG - "PUBG uses the Unreal Engine 4 and so we see the 1080 Ti easily beating the 5700 XT, though this time it wasn't much faster than the 2070 Super."
F1 2019 - "Performance in F1 2019 was virtually identical across these three GPUs with average frame rates ranging from 112 - 114 fps. The results at 4K were also very competitive, the GTX 1080 Ti matched the 5700 XT exactly."
Wolfenstein: Youngblood - "The 1080 Ti was 10% slower than the 2070 Super and when talking over 140 fps on average, that's not a big deal. The 1080 Ti was comparable to the 5700 XT at both 1440p and 4K."
Apex Legends - "The GTX 1080 Ti did beat the 5700 XT by a small margin while it wasn't much slower than the newer RTX 2070 Super. Then at 4K the GeForce GPUs delivered basically identical performance while the 5700 XT fell away by around a 12% margin."
Monster Hunter: World - "Here we see very competitive performance at both tested resolutions, the 1080 Ti was a smidgen faster than the 2070 Super and 5700 XT, but overall the gaming experience was much the same."
...and so forth.
