How well can the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 307.

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 Resident Evil 8 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 51 FPS, Medium: 41 FPS, High: 27 FPS and Ultra: 20 FPS. We proceeded to look at Back 4 Blood to see how that compared and saw that it returned a reasonable 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Resident Evil 8 on the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 39FPS, M: 31FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Back 4 Blood which seemed playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 35 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Battlefield 2042 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom Edition is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.

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?
