GeForce 7800 GTX Comparison

Subject: Graphics Cards | July 28, 2005 - 01:24 PM |

Our friends at Tech Report have posted a review that looks at three different 7800 GTX cards from BFG, MSI and XFX.  Turns out the winning card has NOTHING to do with graphics!

The first thing that should be said in any roundup of GeForce 7800 GTX video cards is that these cards are all essentially the same thing. NVIDIA doesn't just design the GPU; they create a reference design for the whole card, memory and all. NVIDIA's board partners then manufacture those boards according to NVIDIA's specification, usually with very little deviation from the original design. Outside of a few minor differences like the stickers on their coolers, the three brands of boards we're reviewing here today are virtually indistinguishable unless you examine them side by side.
