NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS vs NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS SLI

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS

► remove NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS

This is the smaller version of the 7900 GTX with less shader- and vertex-pipelines and less current consumption. Nevertheless it is not apt for small notebooks.

The performance is near to the 7800 GTX, but needs clearly less energy. It is used for 17" notebooks, because a lot of heat arises.

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

Compared to the Desktop GeForce 7900 GS graphics card the mobile version has a smaller core and memory speed (375 versus 450 MHz chip, 500 versus 660 MHz memory speed) and is therefore a bit slower.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS SLI

► remove 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).
