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.

Do you have BF3 or 4 ?

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.

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

Is there a special way to do it?
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 :(
