Performance in Simulators
Despite the difference in their technical characteristics, all the GeForce 7900 series cards have almost the same performance in Pacific Fighters due to the design of the game engine. It’s also true for the Radeon X1900 XT and Radeon X1800 XT, but these two have a lower speed since the game is optimized for the GeForce 6/7 architecture.
This space simulator doesn’t need a high fill rate, but requires a fast processing of its multiple pixel shaders. This explains why the Radeon X1900 XT is in the lead.
The difference between the standard GeForce 7900 GT and the e-GeForce 7900 GT CO SuperClocked is 10-23% (the latter’s better of course) depending on the resolution, but the EVGA only comes close to the results of the Radeon X1800 XT in 1600x1200. Its performance is quite high for comfortable play but you may want to limit yourself to 1280x1024 with FSAA if you want to safeguard yourself again slowdowns when there are too many objects in the scene – which is characteristic of this game.
