How well can the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition run games
22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom 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. All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

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 Gainward Phantom Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 222 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Call of Duty Warzone to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 34 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition at 1440p and researched how Grand Theft Auto VI might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Call of Duty Warzone which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 68FPS, M: 54FPS, H: 36FPS, U: 26FPS. And another popular game was Assassins Creed: Valhalla with predictions of L: 20FPS, M: 17FPS, H: 15FPS, U: 10FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition, this is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 866 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 57% better performance as well. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 23% better and can run 704 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
