NVIDIA’s New 512MB 7800GTX: New Records in 3D!

We have done some initial testings on the new NVIDIA 512MB 7800GTX.
These run at default clocks of 550Mhz Core and 1700Mhz Memory. With a single card, we’ve hit 13,396 points in 3DMark 05 with
810/2000Mhz!

The very cool and mean dual slot cooler on the card. The fan actually spins
very slowly and silently when I tested the cards air-cooled. Even in 3D mode.
I guess it only spins up when temperature gets hot.

A look at the core. This is an Engineering Sample core, GF-7800-U-A2….. No
prizes for guessing what the “U” stands for…

We put these cards under extreme cooling of below -90 degrees
Celsius with our home-made coolers. These cards were tested on the DFI LAN Party
UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert.

During some initial tests, we’ve hit just 4 points shy of 13,400
with a single card!

This is how the single 512MB compares with one of my best 256MB
card scores:

In SLI configuration, 3D Mark 05 is still very CPU limited in
GT1 and GT2. Nevertheless, we’ve managed to break 18K:

18474 in 3D Mark 05. The new cards helped a little in GT2, but GT1 is 100% CPU limited.

Well, that’s it for now, more to come soon!
