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.

Except for 1024x768 resolution, the GeForce 7900 GT and the GeForce 7800 GTX are equals and are both much slower than the Radeon X1800 XT which boasts high operating frequencies and a ring-bus memory controller. None of these cards can ensure a really comfortable frame rate in high resolutions with enabled full-screen antialiasing; it’s only in 1024x768 that you get something like 60-70fps.
Alas, the SLI configurations based on GeForce 7800 GTX and GeForce 7900 GT only push the bar up to 1280x1024 resolution whereas the Radeon X1800 XT CrossFire maintains an average speed of about 60fps in 1600x1200, or in 1024x768 if you use 8x Super AA.
