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 third test differs from the second one in having a more complex geometry, and the ASUS Extreme N7800GT looks better than the RADEON X1800 XL in the “pure speed” mode and equal to it in the “eye candy” mode, excepting 1600x1200 resolution.
Although the fourth test differs much from the second and third ones (mostly in using version 2.0 pixel shaders), it presents a picture similar to the third test: the ASUS Extreme N7800GT is no worse than the RADEON X1800 XL and, when overclocked, equals the GeForce 7800 GTX.
So, 3DMark03 thinks the ASUS Extreme N7800GT and the ATI RADEON X1800 XL are equals and have roughly the same performance.
