Benchmarks Real world tests of GeForce GTX 780M vs 770M

Passmark Industry standard benchmark for overall graphics card performance

I thought it might also be interesting to run the new 3DMark on these GPUs and the results show a similar story to the gaming tests on the previous page.

3DMark 11 Graphics Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX 11 GPU performance

3DMark11 puts the GTX 770 slightly ahead of both the GTX 680 and the Radeon HD 7970 - an edge of 11% over the AMD offering.

BioShock Infinite 1920 x 1080 - Ultra preset + DX11 (DDOF)

GeForce GTX 780M
46.6 fps
GeForce GTX 770M
29.43 fps
Being able to play top titles like Metro Last Light, Bioshock Infinite and Sleeping Dogs at these quality settings and at 1920x1080 resolution was impressive.

Crysis 3 1920 x 1080 - Very High preset + 16xAF + 2xSMAA

GeForce GTX 780M
29.25 fps
GeForce GTX 770M
19.55 fps
The HD 7970s in CrossFire had issues in BF3, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 and Sleeping Dogs with nearly every other frame alternating between high and low frame times - the result is an animation that is either stuttering or at a much lower perceived frame rate than you should be getting for your GPU investment.

Dead Space 3 1920 x 1080 - Very High preset

The shere specifications of the GTX 780M are quite impressive and, according to Nvidia, should be enough to run all the latest game titles including Tomb Raider, Battlefield 3, Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite and Assassins CreeD III at 1920x1080 resolution and Ultra settings.

I have a GTX 770M overclocked and it does significantly better than those results... 70 fps in crysis 3 easily and well over 100 FPS in dead space 3.. most new games I play i get easy well over 60 FPS
Wow, Nvidia really made sure to make the 770m under powered compared to 780m.
3DMark11 score of the 770M should be 4955 22486 is the 3DMark06 score
We've fixed that up, thanks for catching that Starman!
Passmark score on the 770M should be 2440, not 1462.
