Geforce 7800GTX scores 7600, SLI 11200 in 3DMark 05
BEFORE YOU SEE a deluge of Geforce 7800GTX post-NDA scores on Wednesday, dawn BST, or 9 PM San Francisco time on Tuesday, we are ready to share a performance number or deux avec vous.
Dell's favorite 3D benchmark, 3Dmark05 will score 7600 on a non-overclocked machine, while two cards in SLI can get 11200. Although we all kind of expected more, it’s a nice score. And SLI could kind of provide even more.
Two 6800 Ultras from Gainward clocked at 425MHz can score 10200 - just a thousand less than two super-duper 7800 GTX cards. So whoever launched the story claiming a 7800 score for Geforce 7800 GTX was not too off at all, even if the name comes from Nvidia's proven naming nomenclature.
Nvidia is very good at getting the message to market about their parts and their positioning and it wouldn't want to mess it with some new numbers which can confuse anyone.
If we look a the older mark 03, a single card scores 16000, while two cards will get you to an amazing 26000. All games will benefit and the usual suspects such as Doom 3 and HL2 will end up 20 to 30 percent faster. Some other games will benefit but there's no question that this card will end up faster than current single-slot non-SLI king, the X850XT PE.
Nvidia made a great thing of moving the production to TSMC as we confirmed. And many people will have those cards in retail starting this Wednesday.
Yields are good; it was about the time for Nvidia to get some nice yields and to stop experimenting with IBM's Fishkill. G70,
Geforce 7800 GXT chip is running cool and power consumption of the card is very good. It's not power greedy even though it's built on 110 nano marchitecture and has 302 million transistors.
Just to give you an idea about performance but you have to wait almost two more days to see the storm of NDA reviews on the net. µ
