22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 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. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 780 graphics card, when running 2020 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 186.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 780 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 108 FPS, Medium: 85 FPS, High: 57 FPS and Ultra: 41 FPS. We proceeded to look at Mafia 2: Definitive Edition to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 35 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 780 by playing Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord which yielded a playable performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 83FPS, M: 65FPS, H: 44FPS, U: 31FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Mafia 2: Definitive Edition and that was playable. This graphics card delivered 27 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Mafia: Definitive Edition which is predicted to get playable results with a 27FPS on Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 780 is a reasonable choice at this screen size.

GeForce GTX 780 is a high-end graphics-card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK110 Core (same used on Titan) but with 12 SMX activated and therefore offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 863MHz and goes up to 902MHz in Turbo, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz. It consumes up to 250W.
Benchmarks indicate that its performance is up to 30% better than previous GeForce GTX 680 and thus allows even the most demanding games to be playable at the highest settings, at 1080p. With proper overclocking and cooling, it can surpass GeForce GTX Titan.
