    Identical means performance-wise. Specs are irrelevent and will always be. They (much like 3DMark scores) are simply numbers that have some relation to how a card performs, but do not indicate it directly.

    Identical performance, and the 6800GS overclocked (nevermind pipe unlocking) can near 6800 Ultra performance and surpass it with a well-cooled card.

    Now this is perhaps the most rediculous argument I've participated in throughout the entirety of 2006. Anyone who thinks a 6800GT is "way faster" ither does not pay attention to hardware or has poor reading comprehension. I won't continue having little fights over data you post which are blatantly erroneous. I'll simply resume deletion of posts.

    Uh-huh... Even though in BF2 it beats the 7900GTX in every resolution and is playable at every resolution, all the way up to 2048x1536? Even though it beats or ties a 7900GTX in every other game in every resolution. Yeah, it just can't handle those high resolutions. Nevermind Crossfire and SLI. Prohibitevely expensive for almost everyone, and I wouldn't even consider Crossfire.

    You've been blinded by your fanatical devotion to nVidia. I know quite a few religious fanatics who are more open-minded about "competitors products" (if you will) than you are.

    agreed with yawg completely.

    oh yeah, and a 7900gtx is supposed to be hardly better than a 7800gtx, apart from FEAR - the beta drver is supposed to give massive framerate increases.

    "Speaking of increased speeds, the standard clocks on the core is 650MHz which is a HUGE jump from the 430MHz found on the 7800GTX and memory has been bumped from 1200MHz to a massive 1600MHz thanks to the 1.1ns memory being used."

    this is quoted from the review here at tweaktown that i read and orderd the same night i read it....i didnt type that some admin here did doing the review,there facts,not my opinons sir.

    3dmarks-heh 1,500+ higher on average,512 ram, i,ll take it.badger me all u want thats fine.

    You're both right and wrong at the same time. I believe Munkul was referring to a 512MB 7800GTX, while you and the Tweaktown article refer to 256MB GTXs. The difference between the 7800GTX512 and the 7800GTX is like a 6800GT to a 6800, but a 7900GTX to a 7800GTX512 is more like a 6800 Ultra to a 6800 Ultra-Extreme. Sure, there's a difference, and you might even notice it with the right settings and a powerful system, but it's not a huge difference.

    Page 4 [GeForce 7800GTX256 vs. 7900GTX512]not (2 )256 cards vs each other ehh

    "24 pixel pipelines are included on the 7900GTX (like the 7800GTX) but thanks to the increased core speed, performance should be increased without any problems at all.

    Speaking of increased speeds, the standard clocks on the core is 650MHz which is a HUGE jump from the 430MHz found on the 7800GTX and memory has been bumped from 1200MHz to a massive 1600MHz thanks to the 1.1ns memory being used." from tweaktown review,now yawg i would agree with you if they were comparing 7800gtx512 vs 7900gtx512.but there comapring(clik the link).7800gtx256 vs 7900gtx512 ya a 1,500+ points in 3dmark is alot in my book,plus shrunk the die from 130mm to 90mm added another 256 of ram = 512,with shrinking the die they could ultilize lower wattage consumption in turn very hi clock rates across the board eqauting to a differnt creature in a sense.Moving more onto the core, this is nVidia’s first 90nm chip and what took ATI months and a huge amount of delays nVidia seemed to do without breaking too much of a sweat. The move to 90nm gives us higher clock speeds and cooler temperatures.
    mmm

    http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/880...gtx/index.html

    they never once compared a 7800gtx 512 card there,being they sold out awhile back on em running short of that samsung memory for the 7800gtx 512 model to use.

    maybe im being obtuse, but what are you trying to say, bf2nut? what i take it as, is: the 7800gtx 512 is barely better than 7900gtx (tho you didnt actually say this directly) but there is a massive difference between the standard 7800gtx and the 7900gtx. is this what you tried to say?

    I think we all agree on this but we're still talking about it for some reason. I'm aware of the Tweaktown article and that it was using a 7800GTX 256MB (an odd choice, but very characteristic of this site's articles). I was just clarifying Munkul's post.

    called nvidia and they simply said they ran out of the memory to make the 7800gtx 512 models long ago and only had limited supplies being so expensive and not planning on selling nearly as much of 256 7800gtxs available.that would be why they compared that card because u simply cannot find a 7800gtx 512 anywere on teh planet :0,glad because at the time i was looking for 1 =0

    no biggie my buddy has a 7800gtx 256 and i only score 800 more points then him :p so i guess i 7800gtx 512 model would be really dang close to 7900gtx :p
