How well can the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition run games
13 Dec 2019 - 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 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 386 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a strong frame rate from Halo: Reach with 116 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to return a weak 19 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Red Dead Redemption 2 which we saw getting a playable 38 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Halo: Reach which delivered strong FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 233 FPS, Medium: 183 FPS, High: 123 FPS and Ultra: 88 FPS. Next we have Cyberpunk 2077 running on GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition which is predicted to get L: 37FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Red Dead Redemption 2 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 one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.

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? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

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 Ti 6GB which is 59% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 893 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 RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 763 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 25% better performance.

Hi there.
Can some mod perhaps correct boost clock for this card, it's wrong. It should be 941, not 902.

Also, date for "Max Power" is missing. It should be "250 Watts"

It's a nice card and all, but it's also 300$ more than the 770. If I were going to bother putting out that much money I'd just toss in a little more and get a pair of 770s.
