Benchmarks: Total War: Warhammer, Rise of the Tomb Raider
The GTX 780 was tested using DirectX 11 in Total War: Warhammer as it doesn't support DX12 in this title. Even so performance was excellent as the 780 matched the 1060 3GB and GTX 970 at 1080p.
Moving to 1440p the 780 dropped off its pace ever so slightly, though for the most part provided comparable performance to the GTX 970, 1060 3GB and RX 470. It was also significantly faster than the GTX 1050 Ti here.
In Rise of the Tomb Raider the 3GB GTX 780 struggles with the minimum frame rate, only managing to edge ahead of the GTX 1050 Ti by a few fps. An average of 72fps at 1080p isn't bad though, positioning the 780 between the 1050 Ti and RX 470/R9 390.
Tomb Raider's 1440p results are much the same though the minimum frame rate looks much better in comparison to the RX 470 and R9 390 here. That said, the average frame rate is still quite a bit off the pace at 46fps to the R9 390's 55fps.
