If you are looking for a killer gaming card, but find the 7800GTX too expensive, then you will want to check out the recently released 7800GT. It’s been scaled down to 20 Pipes and 7 Vertex Units but it still packs a massive punch. We are taking a look at the eVGA version, which comes pre-overclocked! Time to see what this beast can do.
Now into the fun part, benchmarking! We are going to cover a collection of popular synthetic benchmarks. Even though they are loved by some and hated by others, they are still decent tools to use. We are also going to take a run through many games, some completely new and others that have been around for awhile. Here is a complete list of the benchmarks we are using:
For the Half-Life 2 and Battlefield 2 benchmarks, we’ve included results of applying Multi-Sampling and Super-Sampling. For the Far Cry section, we have included the performance results with HDR. Here are the stats for the system we are using during testing:
AMD 64 3200+ S939 Venice @ 2.00GHz
Ultra X-Finity 600W
200GB * 2 Western Digital 8MB Cache
160GB Western Digital 8MB Cache
eVGA 7800GT PCI-E 256MB
Using official 77.77 drivers.
Windows XP Professional with SP2
Without further ado, let’s start with the 3D Marks and Aquamark.
