How well can the GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! Edition run games
29 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! 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. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 231 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! Edition can run Mafia: Definitive Edition at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 46 FPS, Medium: 36 FPS, High: 25 FPS and Ultra: 18 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is predicted to return a playable 29 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Mafia: Definitive Edition where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 35 FPS, Medium: 28 FPS, High: 19 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. We added Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to our research and predict it will be weak with a 22 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Assassins Creed: Valhalla leading us to predict 13 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! 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 Zotac AMP! Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! Edition 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 780 Zotac AMP! Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 43% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 830 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX 590 8GB, as it can run 782 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 24% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 780 Zotac AMP! Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 1006MHz while its boost clock is now of 1058MHz. The memory clock was increased to 1552MHz.
