NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS SLI

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS SLI

Two NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS graphics cards are bounded by SLI. This shows only in SLI supported games a clear performance advantage and makes it partially faster than a GTX version. The smaller version of the 7900 GTX with less shader- and vertex-pipelines and according data sheet less current consumption. It is only useful for big laptops, because of the high current consumption of each graphic card.

Current games like Far Cry, Splinter Cell - Chaos Theory, Oblivion, Call of Duty 2 or Half Life 2 - Lost Coast can be played with high details and resolutions without any problem. Antialiasing and anisotrope filter can be set in all games except Oblivion (with >30fps).

The chip also features the PureVideo Technology but has less features as the PureVideo engine in the current 8600M GT chip. > Comparison of PureVideo features
