Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 305 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Forza Horizon 5 at 1080p of 23 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Battlefield 2042 which we saw got weak frame rates of 4 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Resident Evil 8, which was getting 23 FPS under tests.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Forza Horizon 5 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 46 FPS, Medium: 36 FPS, High: 25 FPS and Ultra: 18 FPS. Next we have Battlefield 2042 running on GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition which gets L: 7FPS, M: 6FPS, H: 4FPS, U: 3FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Resident Evil 8 gets L: 46FPS, M: 36FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition running at 1440p is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D Ice Dragon Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered
