Benchmarks: Tomb Raider, Crysis 3
Not long ago, our Tomb Raider benchmark was considered extremely demanding, with cards such as the GTX 680 averaging just 34.7fps at 2560x1600. At 57.7fps, the new GTX 780 Ti nearly meets our ideal frame rate and is 22% faster than the GTX 780, 25% quicker than the R9 290X and 38% faster than the R9 290.
From there, Gigabyte's GTX 780 Ti OC averaged 62.8fps, which not only made it the fastest single GPU graphics card tested with 9%, 32% and 36% faster performance than the standard GTX 780 Ti, GTX 780 and R9 290X. Likewise, the GHz Edition offered an impressive 54.7fps, only 5% slower than the standard GTX 780 Ti.
The GTX 780 Ti averaged 36.9fps in Crysis 3 at 2560x1600, outperforming the GTX 780 by 24%, the R9 290X by 3% and the R9 290 by 10%. Gigabyte's GTX 780 Ti OC was another 8% faster than the standard version with 39.8fps, or 11% and 19% faster than AMD's 290 products.
The GTX 780 GHz Edition was 1% slower than the standard GTX 780 Ti and 23% faster than the GTX 780, while it was just 8% slower than Gigabyte's overclocked Ti. Compared to AMD's $400+ R9 series cards, the GTX 780 GHz Edition was 2% and 9% faster.
