The GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.
DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.
Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 285 games in the list.
The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition shows us that Forza Horizon 5 is getting a weak result of 17 FPS, and then we are seeing Resident Evil 8 returning a weak 17 FPS while another game on our list is the Star Citizen which is predicted to get 43 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.
We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 33 FPS, Medium: 26 FPS, High: 18 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. Next we have Star Citizen running on GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition which is predicted to get L: 87FPS, M: 68FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Forza Horizon 5 gets L: 33FPS, M: 26FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition PC gaming is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II Edition in your PC?
