NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS vs NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX vs NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX

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.

► remove NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX

The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX is top of the mobile graphic cards line from NVIDIA (of the 7000 series) and successor of the 7900 GTX graphics card. It enables the user to play all  games from 2006 fluently in the highest resolutions and options. As a consequence, the heat is correspondingly high. Therefore it can be used only in DTR laptops (17"). At moment, there is nothing better for gamers (except the SLI version with 2 cards).

The performance can be compared partially even with the Desktop 7950 GT video cards (partially a bit better, according NVIDIA). Therefore, the Geforce Go 7950 GTX is able to display actual games like F.E.A.R., Company of Heroes, or Call of Duty 2 fluently in high details and high resolutions.

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

NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GTX is the predecessor of the 7950 GTX and has still a very good DirectX 9 performance. The card enalbes the user to play e.g. Doom3 in 1600x1200 fluently. The card was used in large notebooks (because of heat issues).

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
