    I've been trying to find comparisons but could use some assistance from the macrumors people!

    I want to move over to an imac, but currently use a custom built PC with a geforce 560 ti 448 core vid card.

    From what i can tell, the 780m in the imac is better, but i cant get a firm grasp on HOW much better (both in mac and bootcamp'd windows).

    Anyone have an idea? my guess is roughly 25% better....does that sound right?

    I guess u talk about speed.
    Better in my world is alot of things.. For example.. a dead quiet computer when playing games on it on ultra settings.

    I got the 780m card.. If you want me to try something for u i may try.

    Can you try BF4 with high settings, no AA, native res and check min/avg/max fps ? :D

    Multiplayer 64 server :D

    I would be extremely thankful :D

    I was really just looking for an guess on overall performance compared to the card i currently have (560 ti 448 core).

    I didnt need specific games FPS, because i probably dont play /have the games you are going to test with (BF4 for example, i don't play it).

    If anyone has more experience in the video card universe, i'd love to hear what you think!

    GTX 780M - 3DMark GPU Score: 7440
    GTX 560ti 448 cores - 3DMark GPU Score: 5800

    So I guess you can say that 780m is better than 560ti :)

    here's another benchmark reference ---> 780m score is a good 20% faster than 560ti

    I think 25% better is probably a bit conservative, personally. There was a huge improvement in going from the old 5 series (which you have in your 560 TI) to the 6-series Kepler GPUs. From what I've heard, the 7-series GPUs are coming in at about 20-30% faster than the 6 series!

    You'll be pleased, I think.

    I would love to know this but in single player instead. Maybe on ultra with AA on as well.

    I have played on those specs and i got 40 fps average
    Top fps is above 50
    lowest fps i get i think is just under 30..

    What about 1080p, no AA, high settings ?

    I was hoping to get something with high settings with around 60fps average at least :(
