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.

At 2560x1440 on Battlefield 4, the EVGA GTX 780Ti Classified was able to get an average of 57.5 frames per second. In comparison, the reference card achieved to achieve 50.6 fps.

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 NVIDIA GTX 780ti and the other graphics cards using the built-in benchmark tool under the 2560x1440 resolution with ultra graphics and DDOF enabled.

In Bioshock Infinite, the EVGA GTX Classified 780Ti had an average of 81.5 frames per second. In comparison, the reference card was able to achieve 70.4 fps.

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 1080p, The EVGA GTX Classifed 780Ti had an average frame rate of 37.3fps while the reference card had 34.2fps.

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: 2560x1440 Full Screen, High graphics, 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.

Conclusion

Overall, if you're looking for the best of the best, EVGA's ACX Classified GTX 780Ti is the perfect card for your next gaming computer. Not only is it the fasted graphics card that we have ever tested, it also runs relatively cool and quiet.
