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.

Albatron GeForce 7800GTX = Fast!!!

FanATIcs aside, I think it's safe to say that nVIDIA is currently dominating the videocard market; from entry level to mainstream and high end, nVIDIA has better offerings right now. Of course, the tables will probably turn if ATI can release something before the holidays.

At first glance the Albatron GeForce 7800 GTX is nothing special to look at, because it is the reference videocard with an Albatron sticker on its heatsink. Its reference GPU cooler is not too loud, and once the card is installed into the PC the 7800GTX is a pure monster. Albatron expect to have custom 7800 GTX videocards out on the market sometime in September, depending on how tight the GPU supply is from nVidia.

The Albatron GeForce 7800 GTX had absolutely no problems with any benchmark we threw at it, even when AA and AF are entered into the equation! The unit PCSTATS tested was a decent overclocker, reaching a modest 479 MHz core and 1347 MHz memory. Considering the mounting holes on the Albatron GeForce 7800 GTX are in the same location as the previous generation, enthusiast upgraders can port over their existing cooling hardware easily!

The software package that comes with the Albatron GeForce 7800 GTX is a bit weak but I doubt anyone would buy a 7800 GTX for a copy of Far Cry or HL2. Other than that I have no complaints at all, this card is simply awesome.

With a retail price of $735 CDN ($599 US), the Albatron GeForce 7800 GTX is expensive but it blows the doors off anything else. If for some reason you find that the videocard is not fast enough, you can get another 7800 GTX and run them in SLI. ;-) Your wallet might be hurting afterwards but your gaming experience will be unequaled!
