3DMark Fire Strike and Fire Strike Ultra
We also tested the GTX 1080 using 3DMark’s highly respected Fire Strike and Fire Strike Ultra synthetic benchmarks. Fire Strike runs at 1080p, while Fire Strike Ultra renders the same scene, but with more intense effects, at 4K resolution.
There are no major surprises here. The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW performs a bit better than the Founders Edition, as expected, and absolutely blows everything else away—as we’ve already established in the GTX 1080 Founders Edition review.

EVGA GTX 1080 FTW
This is the GeForce GTX 1080 you’ve been waiting for. The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW puts EVGA's personal touch on Nvidia’s beastly card, and it's a winner, from its high base clock and custom cooling to its extra 8-pin power connection.
- Dual 8-pin connections amps up the potential for lofty overclocks
- Efficient ACX 3.0 cooling
- Overclocked in excess of 2.1GHz on air
- Outstanding performance on all benchmarks
- Requires a little more power than the Founder's Edition
