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 second test produces a similar picture, excepting 1024x768 resolution where the Extreme N7800GT is slower than the RADEON X1800 XL for some reason. Considering that 3DMark05 uses that resolution to calculate the overall performance score, we can now explain the worse overall score of the ASUS Extreme N7800GT.
The third test contributes to the final score, too. The ASUS card is again slower than the RADEON X1800 XL in 1024x768, although the gap is smaller than in the previous test.
So, the worst overall score of the ASUS Extreme N7800GT is easily explained: this graphics card is noticeably slower than the RADEON X1800 XL in 1024x768 resolution of two tests our of three, but it then overtakes the RADEON in higher resolutions.
