How well can the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D HerculeZ 2000 Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D HerculeZ 2000 Edition 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.

How well will the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D HerculeZ 2000 Edition run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 423 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Need For Speed Heat with 38 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which returns a weak 19 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Borderlands 3 which we saw getting a playable 38 FPS.

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 780 Inno3D HerculeZ 2000 Edition ran Need For Speed Heat to a playable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 76 FPS, Medium: 59 FPS, High: 40 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. Another game tested was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order, L: 38FPS, M: 30FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Borderlands 3, which returned L: 76FPS, M: 59FPS, H: 40FPS, U: 29FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 780 Inno3D HerculeZ 2000 Edition 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.
