15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz 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.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 238.

A GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition card at 1080p is seeing a reasonable frame rate when running Microsoft Flight Simulator on Ultra - 49 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Assassins Creed: Valhalla which is 17 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Valorant performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 464 FPS.

Another game researched was Assassins Creed: Valhalla with predictions of L: 25FPS, M: 22FPS, H: 19FPS, U: 13FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Valorant, which returned L: 933FPS, M: 735FPS, H: 495FPS, U: 354FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 780 Gigabyte GHz Edition PC gaming is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.
