Benchmarks: Prey, Dawn of War 3, Resident Evil 7
Prey is a well-optimized title and the GTX 780 had no trouble delivering highly playable frame rates at 1080p. It wasn't a great deal slower than the RX 470 though it did trail the GTX 970 and R9 390 by over 10fps.
Moving to 1440p we once again find similar results and even at this resolution the GTX 780 was able to provide smooth gameplay.
Finally we have Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III and well, the results are what we have come to expect for the most part. The GTX 780 was found sitting between the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 3GB, making it around 20% slower than the R9 390.
As we've seen several times now, the GTX 780 is able to catch up at 1440p, though this resolution has crippled the GTX 780 more than a few times as well. Anyway, in Dawn of War it averaged 47fps along with the GTX 1060 3GB, landing just a single frame behind GTX 970 and RX 470.
The Resident Evil 7: Biohazard results look fairly typical: the GTX 780 finds itself situated between the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 3GB though it was a good bit slower than the RX 470. The 780 also trailed the R9 390 by a 42% margin so this is another title where we see the Kepler-based GPU aging poorly.
The margins are much the same at 1440p and here the once mighty GTX 780 struggles to even deliver playable performance with an average of just 39fps.
