The single GeForce 7900 GT is a little behind the GeForce 7800 GTX 512 in high resolutions despite the tremendous difference in their clock rates and memory amount. It’s a rather strange thing since F.E.A.R. is known to require a lot of texture processing besides abounding in pixel shaders. As before, none of the single cards can offer you 60 frames per second in resolutions above 1024x768 with turned-on 4x FSAA and 16x anisotropic filtering.
The new card performs expectably in SLI mode: it is a leader when using 4x FSAA (in resolutions above 1024x768) or the more difficult 8x SLI AA. The difference between the two tandems from Nvidia is a mere 3-5fps. It’s no good making any comparisons in the 16x SLI AA mode because the GeForce 7900 SLI and Radeon X1800 XT CrossFire perform under different conditions and, moreover, are both too slow for comfortable play.
