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 Chronicles of Riddick
The ASUS N7800GT runs this game very fast thanks to NVIDIA’s efficient support of the OpenGL API. You get a comfortably high speed in all resolutions, yet there’s almost no speed reserve at the “eye candy” settings. This problem can be solved by joining together two ASUS cards into a SLI system: the combined power of 40 pixel processors provides over 60fps in 1600x1200 resolution with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering! These numbers are also indicative of the performance of the dual-processor graphics card ASUS Extreme N7800GT Dual that we will hopefully have a chance to review in near future.
