How well can the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC 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.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 168 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Horizon: Zero Dawn and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 102 FPS, Medium: 80 FPS, High: 54 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We proceeded to look at Microsoft Flight Simulator to see how that compared and predict that it will return a reasonable 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Horizon: Zero Dawn and predict it will be playable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 78 FPS, Medium: 61 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. We added Microsoft Flight Simulator to our research and predict it will be playable with a 35 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Halo Infinite leading us to predict 16 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 780 EVGA SC Edition? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, as it can run 853 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 53% increased graphics performance. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB, as it can run 790 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 25% increased graphics performance.
