NVIDIA launches GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB for $649

Posted on Monday, November 14 2005 @ 19:20:59 CET by

We already new for a couple of weeks NVIDIA was planning to introduce a new higher clocked GeForce 7800 GTX with 512MB memory and today they have ofifcially launched this graphics card. NVIDIA claims this card is the fastest graphics card around but it comes at a price of $649. The GPU is clocked at 550MHz and features 1.7GHz memory.

This is a lot higher than the original GeForce 7800 GTX which features a 430MHz clockspeed and only 1.2GHz memory.
The GeForce 7800 GTX 512 GPU is so fast, one enthusiast gamer has used it to establish a new world record on a single GPU running 3DMark05, a benchmarking program used to measure a computer’s performance level. Shamino, a PC enthusiast in Singapore, recently shattered the former world record by over 2,500 points by posting a 3Dmark05 score of 13396 in a system with a single GeForce 7800 GTX 512i.

In addition the new GeForce 7800 GTX 512 GPU delivers amazing performance on some of the most anticipated games of the holiday season, with a measured performance increase of 33% over the previous award-winning GeForce 7800 GTXii.

"There is a whole new crop of games coming out for the holidays that use the same kinds of special effects that have been used in animated movies in the past, and these games tax even the most powerful gaming PCs," stated Ujesh Desai, general manager of desktop GPUs at NVIDIA. "For many gamers it is time to upgrade. The first evidence of this is a new game called F.E.A.R. from Monolith."

"F.E.A.R. does indeed set a new standard for games, and there is no denying the quality of its graphics," said Derek Wilson, hardware editor for Anandtech (www.anandtech.com) in his review. "For graphics, F.E.A.R. paves the way for a new generation of games, and is also the first game able to bring the highest powered cards available to their knees when played at its full graphical potential."
NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB graphics cards are available immediately from partners such as Asus, BFG, EVGA, Gainward, MSI, Point of View and XFX.
