Gigabyte GeForce 7800 GTX - Our first retail offering - Benchmarks - Far Cry

Hot on the heels of nVidia's GeForce 7800 GTX graphics card launch last week, we've already received Gigabyte's retail offering which is being shipped into the market around the world. We will be having a look at what Gigabyte are offering the public with the first retail 7800 GTX that we have seen. We will also be looking at if these cards offer us any extra performance over our reference cards that we looked at last week.

There is no denying that Far Cry is currently one of the most graphic intensive games on the market, utilizing PS2.0 technology (the latest versions support Shader Model 3.0 with DX9c) and offering an exceptional visual experience there is no denying that even some of the faster graphics cards struggle.

 

 

We can see that the Gigabyte cards score slightly higher in our single card setup but again we would put this down to our fluctuation.

 

How much does it cost me?
