XFX Geforce 7900 GS Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by thorgal @ 2006-09-18

There are people on this planet that will spend over $1000 dollar on a graphics subsystem. But there are far more people around that just want to spend about $200-250 on an excellent, allround graphics card. If you fit in the last category, The XFX 7900GS might very well be the card you're looking for...

Great atmosphere, cunning AI: this is a very popular game for a reason. We used the multiplayer time demo for evaluating our three test candidates. For every test the minimum and average frame rates are displayed.

Let's start again the "easy way":

Madshrimps (c)

Then add some AA and AF :
Madshrimps (c)

Next crank up the display resolution:

To conclude : the real workout :
Madshrimps (c)

In this test we see a little more variation: a 7-11% lead of the 7900GT over the standard 7900GS. The XFX is very competitive with the 7900GT, only marginally slower by 1-4%.

Next up is Call of Duty 2 ->

Thanks guys.

I enjoyed testing this card, as I always like products that are able to run a bit above their spec

Question remains whether you go for a 7900GT or this card, but I can tell you that without vmods the XFX is faster. It's all a question of how far you're willing to go...
