Performance Summary Charts & Conclusion

Performance summary chart

Here are the summary charts of 20 games and 4 synthetic tests. The highest settings are always chosen, and DX12 is usually picked above DX11 where available, and the settings are ultra or maxed.  Specific settings are listed on the performance charts.  The benches were run at 1920×1080, 2560×1440 and at 3840×2160.  

All results, except for FireStrike, Time Spy, and VRMark, show average framerates and higher is always better. Minimum frame rates are shown next to the averages in italics and in a slightly smaller font.  In-game settings are fully maxed out and they are identically high or ultra across all platforms. The first column shows the GTX 1080 Ti results, the second is for TITAN Xp results and the third column shows the performance increase of the TITAN Xp over the GTX 1080 Ti.


We can see that in every case, with only two outliers probably due to drivers at 1920×1080, that the TITAN Xp is faster than the GTX 1080 Ti.  In the case of Battlefield 1, the framerate is capped at 200 FPS, and at 1920×1080, the performance is being limited by this cap.  The TITAN Xp and the GTX 1080 Ti are both designed for high resolution displays.

Here is Tech of Tomorrow’s video of the Star Wars TITAN Xp unboxing showing the performance using 11 of our benchmarks.

Let’s head for our conclusion.

Conclusion

This has been an enjoyable if a very short 16-hour exploration for us in evaluating the new Star Wars Jedi Order Collector’s Edition of the TITAN Xp.  It did very well performance-wise, beating the GTX 1080 Ti in 20 games, and we look forward to running all 35 games of our benchmark suite in our follow-up evaluation featuring the EVGA Z370 FTW motherboard.

We are totally impressed with this top performing 6-pin plus 8-pin PCIe cabled Pascal TITAN Xp chip.  Priced at $1200, it is certainly expensive but it stands alone as the world’s fastest gaming GPU.  On top of that, it is a hybrid card well suited for Single Precision Compute and for scientific applications.  What is best about this particular edition, is that the Star Wars Editions are being offered at the same price as the “regular” TITAN Xp.  

We do not know what the future will bring, but the TITAN Xp brings the top performer to the Pascal GeForce family right now with an awesome and beautifully rendered work of Star Wars industrial art – it is a must for serious Star Wars collectors that has a practical aspect for top gaming.  With great forward-looking features, you can be assured of immersive gaming by picking the TITAN Xp for 3840×2160, 3440×1440 or even for 2560×1440 at a minimum, and especially for outstanding VR performance.  And a really serious Star Wars collector may even consider buying one of each edition for maximum performance using TITAN Xp SLI.

Stay tuned, there is a lot coming from us at BTR.  Next, in our continuing TITAN Xp series, we will test the TITAN Xp and the GTX 1080 Ti with our full benchmark suite featuring the i7-8700K at up to 5.0GHz, next week.  And don’t forget to check out BTR’s tech community!  You can feel free to comment there or in the comments below.
