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.
The new card enjoys a colossal advantage in speed here: up to 50% in 1600x1200 with enabled 8x SLI AA! This is not a testing error since we rechecked the results a few times. We can’t say why the GeForce 7900 GT SLI performs like than in Quake 4 . Perhaps we are dealing with some software optimizations of SLI technology here.
The speed growth is smaller in the 16x SLI AA mode: 20-22% in all the resolutions.
