How well can the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON 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. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2020. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 169 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Death Stranding getting 38 FPS with the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition, Halo Infinite predicted to get 20 FPS and Valorant getting 435 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 Death Stranding, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 77 FPS, Medium: 60 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. We then checked out Halo Infinite which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 39FPS, M: 31FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS. And another popular game was Valorant that returned L: 876FPS, M: 690FPS, H: 464FPS, U: 332FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

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? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 54% better and can meet 853 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 780 Asus ROG POSEIDON Edition would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB which meets 790 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 26% better performance.
