How well can the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition run games
29 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC 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.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition graphics card, when running 2020 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 101 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Mafia: Definitive Edition with 10 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Assassins Creed: Valhalla which is predicted to return a weak 13 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Genshin Impact which we saw getting a playable 38 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Mafia: Definitive Edition which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 20 FPS, Medium: 16 FPS, High: 11 FPS and Ultra: 8 FPS. Next we have Assassins Creed: Valhalla running on GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition which is predicted to get L: 19FPS, M: 16FPS, H: 14FPS, U: 10FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Genshin Impact gets L: 76FPS, M: 59FPS, H: 40FPS, U: 29FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 57% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 830 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB which meets 764 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 28% better performance.
