The NVIDIA GTX 780Ti is already a beast of a card. We decided to take four of them and push them to the max. Check out our video and article to see just how these cards perform when stressed to the max.

Graphics Tests

Battlefield 4

Being one of the most popular franchises to date, Battlefield 4 is the latest addition to the series that takes full advantage of the latest hardware. For our settings, we set everything to Ultra with 4x MSAA enabled. We tested on the 2560x1440p resolution.

Bioshock Infinite

We chose to use Bioshock Infinite to test the video card due to its magnificient visual qualities and the fact that it is one of the most popluar PC games out at the moment. This will allow us to get an accurate benchmark of how the card will perform in real life scenarios. We tested the EVGA GTX 780Ti Super Clocked and the other graphics cards using the built-in benchmark tool under the 2560x1440 resolution with ultra graphics and DDOF enabled.

Crysis 3

Crysis 3 is still one of the most demanding games currently out on the market. It's able to put any graphics card through its paces by throwing everything at it. For the settings, we cranked the graphics to Very High with 4x MSAA on 2560x1440p.

Heaven 4.0

Widely used to test the capability of a GPU, Heaven benchmark puts maximum stress on the GPU allowing you to check stability issues and real time performance of the card. It also generates real-time in game video that gives the user an accurate reading of the cards capability. The settings that we used to test the cards were as follows: 2560x1440p Full Screen, 4x Multisample Anti-Aliasing, and Normal Tessellation.

3DMark Fire Strike Extreme

3DMark Fire Strike offers extensive features and unbiased results by testing the full potential of DirectX 11 hardware. It is considered to be the best option out there when trying to find out the power of one’s computer as it tests both the graphics and physics capabilities of a GPU.
