This GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz 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 2021 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz 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 374.
With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 49 FPS, Medium: 38 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Forza Horizon 5 is predicted to return a reasonable 47 FPS at Ultra 1080p.
We move on to 1440p, and predict that Battlefield 2042 will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. Next we have Forza Horizon 5 running on GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition which is predicted to get L: 95FPS, M: 75FPS, H: 50FPS, U: 36FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Star Citizen is predicted to get L: 92FPS, M: 72FPS, H: 49FPS, U: 35FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition PC gaming is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition in your PC?
