We were very impressed with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card in our review, awarding it a high score of 4.5/5. We praised the card’s fantastic performance, great design, and high overclockability.

Here’s our verdict: “The GTX 1080 has lived up to its billing in terms of basic performance, which is encouraging when you consider that many of its features can’t even be used yet by the average consumer.”

It continued: “In raw performance terms, it’s a huge step up from the previous-generation GTX 980, although at this point the two are barely comparable due to the huge price and performance gulf.”
