The 7800 GS AGP is like a farewell ode to the AGP platform.
It tries to bring today’s GPU horsepower and technology to the PC users still
on the AGP platforms of “yesterday”. We take a look at Inno3D’s 7800
GS AGP, how it performs in the latest games, and focus on the overclocking capability
of this new king of AGP.

The GeForce 7800 GS card is 110nm based and has 375MHz G70
core with 16 pixel pipes and 6 vertex pipes. It has 256MB of 1GHz GDDR3 on 256bit
memory interface. Topping off at approximately 6 Gpixels/s (16pp x 375MHz) in
fill rate and 38.4GB/s (1200MHz x 256bit /8) in memory bandwidth, it seems pretty
similar compared to the big boys of the previous generation, the NV4x. What
can it offer in terms of gaming performance?
