ASUS EN7800GT TOP Silent - GeForce 7800GT

0 thumbs up

For testing the EN7800GT TOP Silent, we used an Athlon 64 3800+ processor on a DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR motherboard. We also used 1GB of low latency Corsair DDR (TWINX1024-3200XL) and a 120GB Maxtor SATA hard drive. The EN7800GT TOP Silent was compared to a 7800 GT with reference clocks and an ATI Radeon X1800 XL.

3DMark06
Futuremark recently launched a brand new version of its popular benchmark, 3DMark06. The new version of the benchmark is updated in a number of ways and now includes not only Shader Model 2.0 tests but also Shader Model 3.0 and HDR tests as well. Some of the assets from 3DMark05 have been re-used, but the scenes are now rendered with much more geometric detail, and the shader complexity is vastly increased as well. Max shader length in 3DMark05 was 96 instructions, while 3DMark06 ups the number of instructions to 512. 3DMark06 also employs much more lighting, and there is extensive use of soft shadows. With 3DMark06, Futuremark has also updated how the final score is tabulated. In this latest version of the benchmark, SM 2.0 and HDR / SM3.0 tests are weighted, and the CPU score is factored into the final tally as well.

As you can see here, the overclocked EN7800GT TOP Silent of course outperforms the reference clocked 7800 GT. It also tops the X1800 XL by a considerable margin. This is just a synthetic benchmark, though.  So, let's move on to the game benchmarks to see how well the EN7800GT TOP Silent performs where it truly matters.
