    Hi all,

    just a quicky, as all the new 7800GT Extremes have been sold what is the difference between the clock & memory speed of above card and a normal 7900GT?

    Cheers.

    My understanding is that the 7900GT is on a par with the 7800GTX....and is also an eminently clockable card ;) .....methinks that makes the difference likely to be good..... :p

    according to "The Orb" a high end 7800GTX is faster than a 7900GT in 3DMark05 anyway.Obviously there are other factors CPU speed,memory timings etc.

    That'll be the 512mb GTX if you're looking at scores where the cards have been overclocked ;)

    People dont buy 7900gt's to run at stock however, its like the ati gto2 things, built for overclocking, a 7900gt once had some work on should perform on par/near 7900gtx speeds? 7900gtx would beat a 7800gt hands down or any other gpu bar the x1900xt's

    Yeah the 512mb 7800gtx is probably better than a 7900gt, but one has 256 ram and the other has 512, 7800gtx256 vs 7900gt 256, 7800gtx 512 v 7900gtx 512 would be a fair comparison, tbh theres hardly any difference between this gen and last gen except newer ones run a lot cooler so overclock a lot further (bit like skt754 and skt939 cpu's?)

    Both of those are SLi set-ups (according to the 'name' and 'description' at the top). Both set-ups are overclocked, but the 7800gtxs are at the maximum that you can overclock any 7800gtx on air (or at least close to it) while the 7900gts have quite a mild overclock compared to what they can reach. With only 1 7900gt I can get close to 11,000 with my CPU at 2.4. Once those 2 7900gts are overclocked properlly you'll see the beast in them really come out and flatten the 7800gtxs.

    Edit: In fact vocch has scored 11,700+ with just a single 7900gt on air. That'd probably mean he could get 11,400 or so with his CPU at 2.4ghz.
