In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Zotac OC Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 105 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 780, but the GTX 780 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 770. As a result, the GTX 780 exhibits a 46.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 770. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 105 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 780, but the GTX 780 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 770. As a result, the GTX 780 exhibits a 11.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 770. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 770 was released less than a year after the GTX 780, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 780 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 770, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 780 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 780 has 64.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 770, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 780 is much better than the GeForce GTX 770.

The GeForce GTX 780 Zotac OC Edition has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 is 2288 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667. The GTX 780 having 621 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 780 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 770.

The GeForce GTX 780 Zotac OC Edition requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 780 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770. The GTX 780 requires 20 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 770 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 780 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 770.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 780 Zotac OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 941MHz while its boost clock is now of 993MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs on level with GeForce GTX Titan.
