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!

In SLI mode, the cards broke 18,000 3D Marks!

We have done some initial testings on the new NVIDIA 512MB 7800GTX.
These run at default clocks of 550Mhz Core and 1700Mhz Memory.

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!

The card was running at 810/2000Mhz!

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!
