Monster Hunter World PC performance: Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 AMP Extreme
The GTX 1080 may have since been replaced twice over in the last year by two separate Nvidia RTX cards, but the GTX 1080 is still an absolutely stonking GPU in its own right. It may not be able to take advantage of Monster Hunter: World’s DLSS feature, but unless you had your sights set on playing it in 4K, there’s still plenty to like here.
To test Monster Hunter: World, I’ve got Zotac’s AMP Extreme edition. With a base clock speed of 1771MHz and a boost of 1911MHz, this is one of the better case scenarios you’ll probably see from a GTX 1080, but like I said back with the GTX 1070, I doubt you’re going to be disappointed with the card’s performance at 1080p and 1440p, regardless of which model you happen to have in your PC.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
Silly question. Of course it can. Whack it up to Highest and enjoy a sweet, sweet average of 70fps.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
You absolutely can. You might find it chugs a bit on Highest at this resolution, as I only saw an average of 50fps during my tests, but that quickly shot up to a lovely smooth 67fps on High.
Can I play this at 4K?
Yes, but let the rest of the GTX family, you’ll have to settle for Mid at this resolution. High is doable, averaging around 37fps, but Mid is just a touch smoother at 40fps. Really, though, you’ll get a much prettier looking game by sticking with 1440p.
