The GeForce 7800 GT graphics card NVIDIA announced on August 11, 2005, proved to be a very appealing and unique product with performance just a little lower than that of the senior GeForce 7800 GTX model, with support of Shader Model 3.0 and HDR, and with an MSRP of $449. But it has recently got a dangerous opponent, ATI RADEON X1800 XL, which appears to be a better product, at least in some aspects. In this review the Extreme N7800GT/2DHTV graphics card, an ASUS version of the GeForce 7800 GT, is going to prove its worth against the ATI challenger.
The graphics cards all have the same “pure speed” in Half-Life 2 , being limited by the CPU performance. The same is true for the “eye candy” mode, but we can see in 1600x1200 resolution that the ASUS Extreme N7800GT is as fast in this game as the RADEON X1800 XT. None of the cards sinks below 60fps.
It’s all roughly the same on the d3_c17_02 map. In high resolutions of the “eye candy” mode you see that the ASUS card is as fast as the RADEON X1800 XL and is no more than 10% behind the RADEON X1800 XT at the overclocked frequencies.
