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 ASUS Extreme N7800GT is less successful in 3DMark05 where it finds itself the last of the participating graphics cards. Meanwhile, the SLI configuration with two ASUS cards takes the first position, stopping short of the 11,000 mark.
As you see, the ASUS Extreme N7800GT and the RADEON X1800 XL match each other throughout the first test – the gap between them isn’t wider than a single fps. Overclocking lifts the EN7800GT up to the level of the GeForce 7800 GTX, but the RADEON X1800 XT with its super-high frequencies is still beyond competition.
