NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX SLI vs NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX SLI

► remove from comparison

Two NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX graphic cards in SLI combination grant highest performances coupled with highest current consumption. So, the performance is similar to the top DirectX 9 desktop graphic cards (without SLI in desktop).

The 7950 GTX is the top graphic card of the series 7000 from NVIDIA for laptops. It offered at the time of presentation a high performance to play all DirectX 9 games in high resolutions and details. Especially, regarding Antialiasing and Anisotrop filters the combined cards are clearly better than single cards. They are used for big and heavy laptops (because of the heat creation, at moment only in a 19" notebook). The card combination was succeeded by the 8800M GTX SLI card combination.

Due to the fact, that the SLI combination renders each frame on a different graphics card, the frametimes between two frames may differ. Therefore, the game at 30fps may stutter a bit, the so called micro stuttering.

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX

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
