At the request of some of our readers, I have included results from the latest 3DMark benchmarks even though it slightly goes against the take on real world gaming. For a completely new architecture though, it can give us some valuable information on the possibilities for the 7800 GTX.
The standard game tests on 3DMark05 show an increase of 10% in performance for the XFX OC over the reference card and about 5.1% over the reference card for the standard XFX card.
On the fill rate and vertex shader test, we actually see even better improvements than we did above, more in line with the pure frequency increases of 4.6% and 13.9% that the two XFX cards represent. The 7800 GTX architecture is obviously scaling very well with the increased clock so we may have a lot of life left in this little GPU to come.
