GTX 780 DX12 problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've got donated a GTX 780 when helping someone upgrading his hardware. He said it had problems, but after a Bios-flash and driver update it seems to be working just fine in DX11-API settings. Though DX12 is producing screen tearing . Tested in Ashes of the Singularity and 3D-mark Timespy/Firestrike with a Xeon X5649 6c/12t @ 3,6 ghz. Resolution at 1920x1200. With 12 gb DDR3. 

Before noticing this I'd lend out the system to a friend who had no computer to game on in these Covid-times, but he had to give it back when it kept crashing in Far Cry 5 - I don't own this title my self so can't test that. But I think it's the same issues.

Is the GPU busted/on it's last leg?, is it just too old for DX12? or is my problem something completly different?

Right, that's what I was thinking, ofcause it's not made for it, but it should be able to run with no major issues - but there is, so, that's why my post...

Managed to crash it! After running Time Spy on loop for over an hour, the screen went grey/black with backlight and the computer was not responding to any input. After rebooting I got into Windows just fine, until I loaded another 3D-application, Firestrike, wanted to see if it did it there too, and just after hitting the Exe, it did the same again...

could it be the driver? The 445.75 from Nvidia that I have on there is not recognized by Nvidia to work? 

Before lending it to my buddy I had the previous driver on there, and had stresstested way more than now, with no issues? Or should I just accept that the card is dead?

Wasn't the driver or the bios. After reboot again, white dotted lines and mismatched colors appeared (blues turning yellow, ex.). In windows the card wasn't even recognized, neither in GPU-Z or afterburner. I DDU'ed and installed older drivers, didn't work. I flashed the bios back to older version, with the same result... I'm accepting the fate of that card :/

could be the driver, try ddu and older drivers. Chechk that the temperatures are okay (vram, gpu and gpu hot spot (orgpu2))

All temperatures were good too. Nothing beyond 70-something in GPU-Z. I've installed another old card now, a 970, and it works with no problems, in DX12 and 11

yeah, just a shame to miss out on the 780 if the card worked... it's still capable enough to run some titles at 1080p

sell the gtx 780 and say that you were not able to get it to work. You can make some money from it

Yeah, selling it to  someone brave, if I can - it would worth a lot more, if it'd been fully functional though. 
Thanks for the input!
