How well can the GeForce GTX 780M run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 780M graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780M in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GTX 780M, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780M? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 163% better and can meet 849 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 780M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 780M is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK104-N14E-GTX-A2 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 771MHz and goes up to 797MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 122W, it is suited for very large sized laptops.


Performance
GeForce GTX 780M is a essentially a fast GeForce GTX 680MX.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly better than the older GeForce GTX 680MX.


System Suggestions
We recommend a Power Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 780M.
