How well can the GeForce GTX 780 Ti run games
27 Jul 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 780 Ti runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 191 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is predicted to run Star Citizen with reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 49 frames per second. Comparing this to New World which is predicted to get reasonable results, where it averages 52 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Far Cry 6, which is predicted to run at 14 frames per second.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Citizen on the GeForce GTX 780 Ti and predict it will get a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 99FPS, M: 78FPS, H: 52FPS, U: 37FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was New World which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 40 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Far Cry 6 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 11 FPS. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 Ti in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780 Ti? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 36% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 761 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, as it can run 900 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 45% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 780 Ti Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 780 Ti is a high-end graphics card and flagship of the GeForce 700 Series.
It packs a full variant of the Kepler GK110 and thus offers 2880 Shader Processing Units, 240 TMUs and 48 ROPs, on 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 875MHz and goes up to 928MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates 1750Mz. GeForce GTX 780 Ti has the Kepler 2.0 Boost and so a even higher central unit speed is expected.
Its TDP remains similar to GeForce GTX Titan and around 250W. A modest 600W PSU should still do the job, considering a similarly fast Processor.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 9% superior to GeForce GTX Titan and around 8% than Radeon R9 290X and so, as of November 2013, GeForce GTX 780 Ti is the fastest single graphics card available in the market.
However, considering its release price of $700, Radeon R9 290X is still a wiser choice.
