The Nvidia Geforce 7800GTs has been widely anticipated by many enthusiasts
around the globe, and today, Nvidia will be launching this product worldwide.
The card is very much sought after for its price, pegged at more than a hundred
bucks (USD) less than the 7800GTX, the card is reasonably priced and it delivers
stellar performance for your latest games. Here, we’ll be taking a look at the
7800GT by XFX (Pine Technologies), one of the very popular brands with the gamer
enthusiast crowd.

The main difference between the GTXs and the GTs is the number of pixel pipes
& vertex pipes present. There is only 20PP and 7VP on the GT as opposed
to the 24 & 8 found on the GTX. To compensate this, XFX pre-overclocked
their 7800GT to 450/1050 instead of the standard 400/1000 clocks as recommended
by Nvidia.

Currently, all Nvidia 7800GTs from all brands follows a standard reference
card design, and all of them comes with Dual DVI ports, VIVO and HDTV capabilities. Like every other card, the XFX 7800GT is using Infineon HYB18T256324F-20 GDDR3 memory rated at 2.0ns.
