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.
CrossFire and SLI technologies still do not work in this game. Turning them on leads to a terrible performance hit.
Like in most other tests, the new graphics card is a little better than the GeForce 7800 GTX only when we use SLI AA; and the performance growth is smaller in higher resolutions. Meanwhile, the game runs at a high enough speed for you to play with enabled 8x SLI AA in 1280x1024 resolution – the frame rate is never lower than 60fps.
The player can also try the 16x SLI AA mode, although the average speed of the GeForce 7900 GT SLI and GeForce 7800 GTX SLI is much lower then. Anyway, the min speed of 40fps in 1280x1024 is quite a satisfactory result, considering the excellent antialiasing quality you have in this mode.
