This GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.
Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.
We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen 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 302 games in the list.
Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Dying Light 2 getting 13 FPS with the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition, Back 4 Blood getting 46 FPS and Battlefield 2042 getting 0 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.
Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition at 1440p with Dying Light 2, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 26 FPS, Medium: 21 FPS, High: 14 FPS and Ultra: 10 FPS. We then checked out Back 4 Blood which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 92FPS, M: 72FPS, H: 49FPS, U: 35FPS. And another popular game was Battlefield 2042 that returned L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition we get the impression that it is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition in your PC?
