EVGA e-GeForce 7900 GT CO Superclocked Review - Page 5 of 5

F.E.A.R.

This popular first person shooter from Monolith makes extensive use of DirectX 9 features. In-game settings used are identified below.

F.E.A.R. Settings

The following results are from F.E.A.R.'s in-game performance test using the quality driver image setting. Resolution setting of 1280x960 was used to produce the performance results in frames per second (FPS).

F.E.A.R. Performance Test

The EVGA 7900 GT CO SUPERCLOCKED outperformed the 7800 GTX by about 17% using no antialiasing and 4x ansiotropic filtering. Using 4x antialiasing and 8x ansiotropic filtering the GT increased the performance distance to 19%.

FAR CRY

The Regulator benchmark for this game is still one of my favorite. Although the game is CPU dependent it still provides a good stress test for the game with the newest updates. I did not use HDR in the benchmark as I need some more time for a good evaluation with the 7900 GT.

Far Cry

Basically a tie with the GTX but the 8XS/16AF results look very promising. After this preview time for some HDR and higher resolutions.

OVERCLOCKING

Time limited I was not able to thoroughly test the maximum overclocks for performance and stability. The card seemed to easily run at 565/1650 but performance in AM3 dropped several FPS. I will have to do some more in-depth testing to see just how much more performance can be squeezed out of this card.

CONCLUSION

Out of the box the EVGA 7900 GT CO SUPERCLOCKED is one very impressive card. This is undoubtedly the fastest mid-range card I have ever tested staying with or bettering the 7800 GTX in the benchmarks used in this preview. Looking at the card you might want to replace the heatsink and fan arrangement and put some heatsinks on the memories. But after you run it you might want to wait on that awhile. It performs very well and seems to run cool even when stressed. So, in my opinion it is good to go as is. Yes, just plug it in and start gaming. That's what I plan to do and I may revisit this review with some updates after some gaming sessions. That is, if I can put the mouse down long enough to do an update.

I definitely rate the EVGA 7900 GT CO SUPERCLOCKED a least a 'Home Run'.
