Last week NVIDIA introduced the GeForce GTX 780 graphics card that was designed for gaming enthusiasts. The GeForce GTX 780 uses the powerful Kepler GK110 GPU with 2,304 cores and 3GB of high-speed GDDR5 memory. We compare the GeForce GTX 780 to the GTX Titan, GTX 680 and GTX 580 to see how it compares to its predecessors at 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 5760x1080 screen resolutions on the latest gaming titles!
The performance decrease that we expected to see from Titan was present, but not nearly as bad as we expected. For example in Metro: Last Light at 5760x1080 the GTX 780 was just 9% slower than the Titan. At 2560x1600 and 1920x1080 screen resolutions that performance gap narrowed to just 4-6 percent, which is on the borderline of being significant. Our testing in Battlefield 3, Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution and Tomb Raider all showed similar results. Just for fun we also benchmarked the old NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 video card that came out in November 2010 and found that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 nearly doubles the performance of that card. If you happen to have one of those cards and are looking for a significant performance jump before you update, you finally have a good option and it no longer costs $999.
