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.
We were also able to compare a total of five different cards here instead of the three on our game play graphs.
In the 3DMark gaming tests we see the default speeds on the Asus N7800GTX TOP taking the overall lead over even the 490 MHz core clocked XFX card. The reference platform here is more than 17% slower than the overclocked Asus card!
Our pixel and vertex shader and fill rate tests pretty much mirror the results we saw in the gaming tests above in 3DMark05. The overclocked Asus card is putting out some very impressive numbers.
