Is Nvidia GTX 1080Ti in 2023 worth buying?

Is Nvidia GTX 1080Ti in 2023 worth buying? We are testing all the modern games in 4K with the GTX 1080Ti Graphics Card.

Today, we will have a fun benchmark test with the Pascal King, Nvidia GTX 1080Ti. The Pascal Graphics Cards of an Enthusiast class launched five years back in March 2017. The GPU was built on the older 16nm processes under the code name GP102. The GTX 1080Ti was a locked GTX Titan XP featuring around 3584 CUDA Cores and a whopping 224 texture mapping units paired with 88 ROPs.

It also had the highest memory bandwidth of 11GB GDDR5X, which is ample for gaming even today. This is a 352-bit dual-slot card featuring HDMI and Display 1.4 Ports. The card was priced at around $699 when launched back in 2017. It was also advertised as a 4K gaming card back then, which we will try testing today.

So we wanted to test whether this GTX 1080Ti is worth buying in the second-hand market because currently, the GPU is End Of Life, i.e. Nvidia doesn’t manufacture these GPUs anymore but still provides driver support. We have paired our trusty old Zotac GTX 1080Ti Amp with the latest Intel i9 Processor based on the DDR5 Platform.

So without further delay, let’s quickly check out the GTX 1080Ti 4K Gaming Performance in 2023, and we will also answer the question of if it’s worth buying second-hand.

Is GTX 1080Ti in 2023 worth it for 4K Gaming?

Yes, if you are getting a GTX 1080Ti in the second market at a reasonable price, you can go for it. It is pretty much evident from the results that the performance is top-notch for most of the games. Only in games like Dying Light 2, Cyberpunk 2077, and Red Dead Redemption might you face some lags or low FPS at certain places because these games are typically hardware demanding.

For most of the games, you are getting around 30+ FPS which is quite playable, and yes, we are talking 4K here. If you have a 1080p display, then almost all the games will cross 60+ in all the AAA titles we tested.

My friend personally uses a 1080Ti paired with an Intel Core i7 7700 and is still able to get 60+ FPS in all these tested games on his 1080p display. So you can blindly go for these, but before purchasing from the second-hand market, you must thoroughly test out the GPU. Also, you should have 1 6pin and one 8pin power connector from your PC to run this.

So this was all about the GTX 1080Ti benchmarks and whether it is worth buying second-hand in 2022/2023. If you think we have missed out on anything, let us know in the comments below.

That’s all, folks!
