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

The GeForce GTX 780 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How well will the GeForce GTX 780 run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. This graphics hardware can run 294 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Back 4 Blood with 43 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Battlefield 2042 which is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular FIFA 22 which we saw getting a good 67 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 780 at 1440p with Back 4 Blood, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 86 FPS, Medium: 67 FPS, High: 45 FPS and Ultra: 32 FPS. We then checked out Battlefield 2042 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was FIFA 22 that returned L: 135FPS, M: 106FPS, H: 72FPS, U: 51FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 780 is a perfectly suitable selection of hardware for theis larger screen size. If a game at 1440p struggles a bit or experiences a frame drop then you can tweak settings in game to help get it stable. This might mean lowering it to medium or low in some specific options.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 780 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 780? Then we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 625 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 29% increased graphics performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 780 then a good choice would be R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB as this is better than 965 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 88% better performance as well.

GeForce GTX 780 Game Requirement Analysis

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.
