ASUS 7800 GTX "T.O.P." in SLI and Factory Overclocked - Benchmarks - Half Life 2

We've reviewed many ASUS graphics cards in previous years but we always wondered why they cost more than other brands. Sure, they always included a healthy package but does that alone really justify spending extra? Today we take a close look at two of ASUS's new GeForce 7800 GTX "T.O.P" cards in SLI which come factory overclocked with fancy and effective coolers. Read on find out why we think ASUS finally hit the nail on the head for a true premium (kick ass) high-end graphics card!

By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

 

We benchmark Half Life 2 with our own custom timedemos as to avoid possible driver optimizations using the "record demo_name" command and loading the timedemo with the "timedemo demo_name" command - For a full list of the commands, click here.

 

 

Half Life 2 really did give us some weird results with the ASUS 7800GTX T.O.P. single card being the fastest with it being even quicker then the SLI setup. These results probably shouldn't be taken too seriously.
