25 Mar 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC Edition graphics card, when running 2020 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 294 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 3 Remake which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 90 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS.

GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 954MHz while its boost clock is now of 1006MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs very slightly better than GeForce GTX Titan.
