NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 1.0 x16
- Core clock speed 650 MHz
- Max video memory 512 MB
- Memory type GDDR3
- Memory clock speed 1600 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started GeForce 7900 GTX sales 9 March 2006. This is a Curie architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 84 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

|OpenGL||2.1||of 4.6 (GeForce GTX 1080 Mobile)|
Synthetic benchmark performance of GeForce 7900 GTX. Overall performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
