BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC

BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC

BFG_GeForce.jpgIf, as we suspect, ATI was knocked back on its heels when nVidia both announced and shipped the GeForce 7800 GTX on the same day, the company must really be reeling from nVidia’s next punch: the less-expensive, nearly as powerful GeForce 7800 GT.

The GeForce 7800 GT is almost identical to the GeForce 7800 GTX, but it has four fewer pixel pipelines (20 versus 24) and slower clock speeds. The “OC” in this implementation, however, stems from BFG’s decision to overclock the board’s GDDR3 memory and graphics core to 525- and 425MHz, respectively, compared with nVidia’s reference-design specs of 500- and 400MHz.

Drop a pair of these in an SLI-capable motherboard and you’ll get Doom 3 at 1600x1200 resolution with 4x antialiasing blasting out of your monitor at 81.2 frames per second. That’s kick-ass performance in our book.
