Finer 90nm production technology allowed Nvidia not just to improve the technical specs of its flagship product dramatically. They also managed speed up its younger brother, which has eventually become even faster than the legendary GeForce 7800 GTX. And the latter is famous for having arrived at the right time and into the right market segment and thus turning into a great success. Today we are going to find out whether the $299 graphics solution will be able to win the leader’s title from the 10-month old buddy.
Half-Life 2 produces an already familiar picture; the GeForce 7900 GT is almost as fast as the GeForce 7800 GTX, and both the cards are successfully competing with the Radeon X1800 XL, but not with the more powerful Radeon X1800 XT.
The new graphics card does somewhat better in SLI mode, enjoying a 5-10% advantage over the GeForce 7800 GTX SLI. That’s not enough for a breakthrough to the next resolution, though: the frame rate is still only comfortable in 1280x1024 at 8x SLI AA 8x whereas the Radeon X1800 XT CrossFire easily yields over 80fps in 1600x1200.
