How well can the GeForce GTX 780M SLI run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780M SLI 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 780M SLI graphics card, when running 2019 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 442 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 780M SLI is running Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 22 frames per second. Comparing this to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which is getting playable results, where it averages 36 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Cyberpunk 2077, which is predicted to run at 22 frames per second.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 780M SLI ran Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 35 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. Another game tested was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, L: 72FPS, M: 57FPS, H: 38FPS, U: 27FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Cyberpunk 2077, wih estimates revealing L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 780M SLI running at 1440p is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780M SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780M SLI in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780M SLI? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 780M SLI would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which meets 982 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 76% better performance.

GeForce GTX 780M SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 780M SLI is a combination of 2 GeForce GTX 780M put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
Together, this combination offers 3072 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This, on a 256-bit memory interface, per card, of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 771MHz and goes up to 797MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.
Best case scenario, this combination is expected to offer similar perform to a single desktop GeForce GTX Titan but ultimately, its performance depends on the driver support and on the 3D application.
Therefore, and paired with a powerful processor, all demanding games should be playable at the highest settings. Still, this combination might surpass the 220W barrier of TDP and so only a few laptops will offer it.

I have this GTX 780M SLI setup in my laptop along with an i7-4900MQ & 32GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM. I can tell all of you first hand that this setup is a power house for sure. Almost all current games can be maxed out at 1080p with 60+fps. Also these type of laptops are upgradeable. The CPU & GPUs can be swapped out later.

Can someone tell me if I can upgrade this laptop to this graphics card?

I know it says that laptop is out of stock but I already have it so if someone could find more information on it from a different site that would be great.

I pretty firmly believe that we all have our own preferences, but in no way do I see high-spec gaming laptops as anything but a very expensive, inevitably doomed piece of equipment. To get a laptop that provided performance on par with my desktop (which cost me about 2200$ total) it would easily put you in range of 4000$. And that's it, you have what you have for the most part. If I decide to add, it's a simple matter of a strong power supply, and another GPU or 2 for SLI, which I can install in literally 5 minutes (in the dark if necessary…I know my case pretty damn well :P)

Oh and then there's the overclocking potential, my current setup can very easily (with a few clicks in fact) be pushed probably 15-20% beyond it's current spec, with no modification or upgrading necessary. Plus my PC has it's own form of anti theft…mainly the fact that it's something like 24x22x10 and weighs probably 50-60lbs. Even if someone -did- steal it, now they need to actually outrun me with it in their arms…good luck! The portability of the laptop is it's only benefit..and even that is limited. High-spec gaming laptops are notorious power munchers, unplugged they die very quickly.

I had actually two choices this rig + cheap full hd monitor and keyboard for 1700 € or Asus laptop with 780m for 1600€. That lappy was actually cheaper but ofcourse 780m is far from dekstop 780 especially 780 ti. But that lappy had Core i7-4700HQ according to this site its 5% better than my i5 4670k. So it wouldnt be bad choice to take it if mobility is important. But when i saw 780 ti i thought im gonna build my first ever dekstop pc with it.

I actually think they would be about the same. there would only be about a 2% to 5% difference, & I couldn't say which one would actually be on top. 780m sli is 10% to 15% more powerful than 8970m CF.

The 780m SLI is about 10 to 15 percent more powerful than HD 8970m CF. here is a link with some benchmarks.

Yeah it is 2500 for one 780m not 1250, & if you look it up on the web SLI actually makes this one stat 5000MHz. Look at this.
