Today, we take a look at the Leadtek Winfast PX 7800GT Extreme. Being an “Extreme” model, it comes out of box, pre-overclocked. Look here to find out how fast this card is, as compared against a normal GeForce 7800 GT!
Two months after the launch of
NVIDIA’s GeForce 7800GTX, the 7800GT was released as a lower end version
of the 7800GTX. The 7800GT is also based on the same next-generation 7 series
graphics processing unit architecture just like 7800GTX (Codename “G70”). Today we will look at Leadtek WinFast PX7800 GT TDH MyVIVO
Extreme. (What a long name!)As a pre-overclocked version, this card runs at a higher clock speed
at 450MHz for Core and 1050MHz for Memory. When compared to the standard reference
clock speed of 400MHz / 1000MHz, the Leadtek 7800 GT Extreme, like the name
suggests, comes with “extreme performance”. Just some time ago, VR-Zone did a preview on the vanilla version of the
Leadtek Winfast PX 7800 GT. For more information on that, take a look
The Leadtek 7800GT Extreme comes with a similar yellow color box like the
other cards from Leadtek but it is clearly shown at the center of the box that this is an “Extreme” version of the 7800GT. Other features such as SLi and VIVO are also stated on the box. The card comes wrapped in a
bubble pack to protect the card.
The Leadtek 7800GT Extreme from the top view. It sports the same
printed circuit board and heatsink design like the standard NVIDIA 7800GT graphics card, with the only difference being the emblem on the heatsink.
This card is using a single slot cooling solution which uses a radial fan to
blow air across the heatsink to cool down the graphics card.
