Benchmarking Rig Configuration:
- AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 (2.6Ghz, 200Mhzx13)
- Geil Platinum TCCD 256MB x2 in dual channel configuration (2-2-5-2-1T)
- DFI NF4 SLI Infinity
- XFX Geforce 7800GT 256MB
- Inno3D Geforce 7800GTX 256MB
- Seagate Baracuda 7200.7 80GB SATA
- Samsung 16X DVD Rom
We take a look at the gaming performance in Direct3D and OpenGL
with Half Life 2 and Doom 3 benchmarks.
We see that the 7800GT is not too far off from the GTX at normal
settings and resolutions but when the resolutions are cranked up and image enhancement
effects turned on, the 7800GT lags behind the GTX by quite a margin.
