GeForce 7800 GTX SLI performance
In our recent review of the new GeForce 7800 GTX GPU, we had trouble really pushing this fancy new graphics card with the Athlon 64 4000+ in our test systems, especially with SLI. That left me wishing that I could test with the nifty new FX-57, and now, I can. The numbers below were generated using the same test config we used in our 7800 GTX review, save for the substitution of the FX-57 processor. Let's see how adding another 400MHz and some nifty core enhancements will help drive a pair of 7800 GTXs in SLI.
Whoa. Here's something to ponder. If you're gonna drop $1200 on a pair of GeForce 7800 GTX cards for SLI madness, you may need to pony up for an FX-57 in order to take fullest advantage of them.
