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 First-Person 3D Shooters
We managed to disable the speed limiter in this game to objectively compare the performance of today’s top-end graphics cards. As you can see, the ASUS Extreme N7800GT is capable of competing with the RADEON X1800 XL in the “pure speed” mode but not at the “eye candy” settings when ATI’s new devices reveal their main trump, the memory controller with the RingBus architecture, and meet no competition, except from the SLI configuration based on two Extreme N7800GT. Overclocking lifts the performance of the ASUS card up almost to the level of the more advanced GeForce 7800 GTX.
