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.
Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
The ASUS Extreme N7800GT goes abreast to the ATI RADEON X1800 XT in the “pure speed” and to the ATI RADEON X1800 XL in the “eye candy” mode. This benchmark doesn’t have any complex shaders the RADEON X1000 architecture might show its advantages upon. When overclocked, the ASUS card is close to the GeForce 7800 GTX in high resolutions. The results of the SLI configuration with two Extreme 7800GT cards require no comments.

Working at its default frequencies, the ASUS Extreme N7800GT is no worse than the RADEON X1800 XT in this rather simple, as today’s benchmarks go, test. Overclocking makes the ASUS card a leader as it leaves even the GeForce 7800 GTX behind!
