Default ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 Performance Test Report

After nVidia launched the Geforce 7900GS, the lower price chip set solution
for high end graphic card applications, the market was really impacted in
September 2006. In these months, I have released 4 product test reports of
Geforce 7900GS products, which were from MSI, ELSA, Galaxy and Leadtek.

In above my released test report, the default C/M value of Galaxy product is
540/1500MHz, which is much higher than the default C/M 450/1320MHz of
the other 3 products.

This time, I want to test the latest ELSA 7900GS over clock version, which is
default C/M as 540/1500MHz. Lets find out the difference of the former released 7900GS.

Complete Product Outlook
The same ELSAs style and solid packing way
Model Number GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256B3 2DT RH


Accessories
DVI to D-sub Cable x 2
HDTV Cable x 1
6pin Power Cable x 1
Driver CD x 1
User Manual x 1
Warranty Manual x 1


Product Outlook
The whole PCB is inserted with aluminum capacitances and solid state
capacitance. The APACK aluminum cooler is another eye-catching factor,
which enhances ELSA 7900GS more attractive and quality proven.




Right Side of the Product
Equipped with aluminum capacitances and 6 pin power input.


Dual DVI Interface and TV-Out Interface (Support HDTV out-put)


Rear Side of Product


GDDR3 256MB
HYNIX 14ns DDR3 chip

The default C/M value of ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256B3 2DT RH is much
higher than other 7900GS products. The performance of ELSA GLADIAC 790
GS PH2 256B3 2DT RH is approaching even higher than 7900GT series
products.

Overclock to 676/1730MHz when using VGA function. (It is really surprising
high performance proven among 7900GS series products)

It supports great over clock feature. The extreme C/M value is much higher
than the 7900GS products I have tested before. In above software testing
environment, the performance is very approaching to 7900GTX. For the entry
level model of 7900 series, it is really excellent
Compared with the 7900GS products I have tested :
MSI 7900GS default C/M value : 450/1320 => Extreme C/M value : 590/1580
Leadtek 7900GS default C/M value : 450/1320 => Extreme C/M value : 595/1600
ELSA 7900GS default C/M value : 450/1320 => Extreme C/M value : 563/1600
Galaxy 7900GS default C/M value : 540/1500 => Extreme C/M value : 620/1650
ELSA 7900GS PH2 default C/M value : 560/1500=> Extreme C/M value : 676/1730

Default

Need For Speed Carbon
The performance when the game is running
Hardware setup :
DPI : 1280X1024
The grade of detail : high
Others are default value
The performance of ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256B3 2DT drops to 450/1320
MHz, which is the same performance as other 7900GS products.
Main Select : 40pages
In the Game : 23~26pages


ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256DT 2DT default C/M value : 560/1500MHz
Main Select : 48pages
In the Game : 28~31pages



ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256DT 2DT overclock C/M value : 676/1730MHz
Main Select : 57pages
In the Game : 34~39pages



The performance is much different when different C/M value setup even using
the same VGA card.
It seems that ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256B3 2DT is much better than
other 7900GS products in the market.
ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256B3 2DT
Advantage
1. High quality cooler supports high cooling performance in silence
2. High default C/M value : 560/1500Mhz
3. Support great over clock feature
4. Support much higher performance than the other 7900GS products even using default setting

Disadvantage
1. The selling price is higher than other 7900GS products

At the present time, nVidia 7900GS is supposed to compete with ATi 1950
PRO in the same price segment but the performance still fall behind.
This 7900GS over clock version product improves not only nVidia 7900GS C/P
value but excellent performance, which can compete with 7900GT and even
approaching to 7900GTX
ELSA GLADIAC 790GS PH2 256B3 2DT is much different than other 7900GS
products, with higher quality components and design.
Before nVidia unveil her entry level 8 series product, 7900GS is still the best
choice in her mid-level products

I know that cooler, Zerotherm, had probs mounting it on my 7800/7900GT, performance is okay, but not as good as Arctic Cooling and high Zalman (VF900)
