Nvidia announced their latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080, last Friday. It’s the most powerful GPU to date, at least until they or AMD make one to surpass it. Offering 3x the performance of two GTX 980Ti’s in SLI and 2x faster than a Titan X, the card will be capable of handling just about any game you throw at it.
As part of the announcement event, the developers at id Software showcased Doom, which comes out on May 13, running on the graphics card.
Powered by Vulkan API, they managed to get the game to run at 200FPS on 1080p. They could’ve gone higher, but the game was limited by its monitor’s resolution.
According to PC Gamer, which published the video, id Software says that they’re working to fix some glitches that occur when the game runs at such a high framerate. They were not able to detect the issues until the GTX 1080 came along.
The GTX 1080 will be out on May 27, carrying a price tag of $600.
