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.
Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
We can’t see anything particularly interesting in Aquamark3 mainly because of the respectable age of the benchmark itself. We can see, however, that the GeForce 7900 GT and GeForce 7900 GTX are equals in this test at first, but then there’s a bigger gap between them in the 8x and 16x SLI AA modes. It’s also clear that the GeForce 7900 GT SLI cannot contend with the Radeon X1800 XT in these modes: in the first case due to its lower-performing memory subsystem (a lower frequency and a less efficient controller), and due to the sheer difficulty of performing 16x FSAA in the second case.
