We will be comparing the 7800GT against its big brother, the 7800 GTX and ATI's current top dog, the X850XT to see how the cards compare. The 7800GT should have the jump on the X850XT offering thanks to its 20 pipes over the X850XTs 16 pipes but let's not talk any longer and let the benchmarks speak for themselves.
Due to only receiving the card literally a few hours ago and not having all our benchmarks handy, we have cut out Half Life 2 and Far Cry but we promise to look into this soon along with overclocking at the same time, sometime next week.
We tested the 7800GT from BFG at its factory overclocked speeds of 425MHz core and 1050MHz memory which is a little quicker than a regular 7800GT (400 / 1000) - keep this in mind if you're using this review to gauge general 7800GT performance.
Let's begin and find out where the 7800GT sits.
Version and / or Patch Used: Build 340

By combining full DirectX9.0 support with completely new tests and graphics, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being industry standard benchmark.
Please Note: Due to recent events with the 3DMark03 series, we are adding results purely for those who are still in favor of 3DMark03. These results should not be taken too seriously and are only added for interest sakes.
We can see that the difference between the 7800GT and 7800 GTX is quite minor here. As we expected the 7800GT also takes out the X850XT with ease. Let's see if this performance can carry over to the more intensive 3DMark05.
