Guide Review - eVGA GeForce 7800 GTX
(8/8/05) – eVGA has become a major seller in the graphics card market thanks to their no frills approach. They are one of the key partners with NVIDIA and were one of several manufacturers that offered the new GeForce 7800 GTX graphics card on the day of the announcement from NVIDIA. The new G70 processor promises to improve both performance levels and graphics quality for the PC market.
During the testing of the card with a number of current 3D games, the GeForce 7800 GTX was able to run at more than acceptable frames rates at high resolutions with anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled. The performance even surpassed the SLI configuration of two 6800 GT graphics cards that cost more than the single 7800 GTX. An SLI 7800 GTX configuration is almost unimaginable for the resolutions possible.
One really impressive feature added to the 7800 GTX is the transparent anti-aliasing. This allows the graphics card to filter polygon textures that feature an alpha channel for improved graphics quality. This is particularly useful for scenes depicting items such as chain link fences. During testing with the feature enabled, there was a almost undetectable drop in frames.
Overall the eVGA GeForce 7800 GTX offers a tremendous amount of 3D performance for those wishing to play games in high resolutions with filtering enabled. For a more detailed look at the card with benchmarks, check out the full review.
