How well can the GeForce GTX 780 run games
13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 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 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 351.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 780 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Detroit: Become Human and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 18 FPS, Medium: 15 FPS, High: 10 FPS and Ultra: 7 FPS. We proceeded to look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 16 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 780 by playing Detroit: Become Human which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 14FPS, M: 11FPS, H: 7FPS, U: 5FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 12 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Resident Evil 3 Remake which is predicted to get playable results with a 31FPS on Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 780 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 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 780 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 780 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 780? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 65% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 894 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 29% better performance and can run 765 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 780 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 780 is a high-end graphics-card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK110 Core (same used on Titan) but with 12 SMX activated and therefore offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 863MHz and goes up to 902MHz in Turbo, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz. It consumes up to 250W.
Benchmarks indicate that its performance is up to 30% better than previous GeForce GTX 680 and thus allows even the most demanding games to be playable at the highest settings, at 1080p. With proper overclocking and cooling, it can surpass GeForce GTX Titan.

I know but since the current gtx 660 ti Kepler is just a little bit better than the gtx 580 Fermi, i suppose Maxwell will follow the same over Kepler.

would this be a good card to put in my new rig. Also would this card pair good with a Core I7-3930K 3.2 ghz. And finally would this pair be able to max any game at 2560x1600 on a single monitor, with 32 gb ram?

I have a question regarding upgrading to this card: you see, I don't have the money for it at the moment. But in about two years, I'll have gathered more than enough for serious upgrading (and the price will be lower). So, in two years, I was thinking of swapping my current GPU for a GTX 780, along with another 8 gigs of RAM and a monitor with a 1080p resolution (of course, I'd get a better PSU to power the new card as well). Assuming that I'd be gaming at 1920x1080 then, would I be able to max all games in two years with smooth frame rates that never drop below 30fps? Moreover, if that is the case - then how long would I be able to maintain this? I know we can only assume and estimate right now, but still - any answer is welcome. :)

just save the money and talk about it two years later because there might be a better gpu for a better price at that moment cause we cant predict what might come out later

I was wondering if the jump from my 580 to a 780 is worth it?
Considering the next gen. consoles are coming and games like The Witcher 3. I'm not to sure how long my current card can keep up. The only thing holding me back is the price and I would need to save money for a new card.
So bottom line is, is the jump worth it? Should I wait for the next gen cards or go for the 780? Cheers

If you can afford it, I think you should get it, it is 2 generations up so I think it would be worthwhile to get it.

No sorry, you can't upgrade the GPU on most laptops and you can't put desktop GPUs into laptops.

You guys might find this funny.
So I just got back from Afghanistan yesterday, I ordered my 780 about 2 weeks ago so I could have it when I got home! Well it was here, and I cleaned my tower up real nice, uninstalled all my drivers, and plugged it in. Powered it up and what do you know, it's a DOA card :D When I turn it on all I see is a "B2" in the bottom right corner, and a "_" in the top left.
So I put in an RMA request with Newegg, guess I'll have to post my benches in 2 weeks! I have picture of the card I guess, but it's nothing more than a paperweight right now :)

i would say 3x GTX 780 because with oc is closer to TITAN
and in 3 way Nvidia performs very very good!
but why do you need that power multiple monitors with full AA?

yeah like silviu says, 3X is way better, a slight OC and 780 will outperform the titan easily so 3X 780 will beat the crap out of it. though i dont think 780 supports 3X SLI? or does it?

It would be hard to keep 3 780, there would be lots of issues, and there is cooling and space, even though in the long run Titan would probably be faster

3 way dosen't have any issue and in the long run GTX 780 just have started ….after 6 months the drivers will be better and better because 3 way 780 will be a perfect gaming rig for now and for the future as well ! :)

No, at Nvidia no!
They take care for SLI customers very very much is the first thing that they do SLI test everyday you can take a look on LinusTechTips and its an article about SLI vs CF and how is efficent SLI

If SLI really is so great then Im probably getting two 760s or 770s if I can. Dunno how much they will cost where I live.

Stop it.. just stop it, Double sli is better then third, because maybe 1 or 2 games support 3-way SLI if not, NONE. The third card is a waste of space and money, reason for this is because these are high-end cards, no videogame is actually going to use a 3rd high-end card to get a high-end game to a decent stable fps,
But onto the point, stick with 1 if you can't 2 cards. saves space, effort, and time.

but SLI is always a good ideea for the future and also for the min FPS so yes performance is too high in this days so 2 way will be just fine and 3 way perfect combo for the future and AA
