NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 7800 GTX sales 22 June 2005 at a recommended price of $599 . This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 110 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.3 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 38.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 228 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 86 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.40 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
