Benchmarks: Gears of War 4, Deus Ex: MD, WATCH_DOGS2

The GTX 780 struggles with Gears of War 4 and is well behind the GTX 970 and R9 390, sitting nearest to the GTX 1050 Ti at 1080p with an average of just 56fps.

Jumping up to 1440p slaughters the GTX 780 and here it delivers GTX 1050 Ti-like results, positioning it miles behind the pack.

The GTX 780 was also weak in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, averaging just 38fps at 1080p to the R9 390s 56fps. This time it was found sitting between the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 970.

Playing at 1440p crushes the mid-field in this title and despite providing completely unplayable performance, the GTX 780 wasn't much slower than the 1060 3GB.

Watch Dogs 2's performance was quite typical: the GTX 780 was 18% faster than the 1050 Ti at 1080p, but also 15% slower than the R9 390.

The margin is reduced at 1440p and now the GTX 780 is just 11% slower than the R9 390. That said, the minimum frame rate is low and this is something we have seen quite a bit from the 780.
