Albatron GeForce 7800GTX Videocard Review

Albatron GeForce 7800GTX Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Usually, the newest generation of videocards are only marginally faster than the previous, but this time around the nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX blows the doors off of everything else.

Benchmarks: SLI-AntiAliasing

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark graphics benchmarking series. It is the first benchmark to require DirectX9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher!

3DMark05
AA Modes Points Ranking
8xS AA 11122
8x SLI AA 6868
16x SLI AA 6613

nVIDIA's new SLI AA puts an enormous amount of strain on the two videocards and here we see that 8x SLI AA runs at about half the speed of regular 8xS AA.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple ' Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

UT2003
1600x1200 Flyby FPS Ranking
8xS AA 207.36
8x SLI AA 63.43
16x SLI AA 56.5
1600x1200 Botmatch FPS Ranking
8xS AA 104.78
8x SLI AA 52.96
16x SLI AA 50.68

UT2003 is usually pretty easy going on videocards these days but when SLI AA (8x or 16x) is enabled, framerates drop to about a quarter of regular 8xS AA.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced OpenGL game to date. It takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limits. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3
1024x768 UQ FPS Ranking
8xS AA 97.3
8x SLI AA 59
16x SLI AA 42.5

Doom 3 is very videocard heavy and with 8x SLI AA, the game is playable but when 16x SLI AA is turned on, it's a bit too much for even two GeForce 7800 GTX videocards running SLI! Hopefully as drivers improve, nVIDIA will be able to extract more performance out of the videocards.
