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

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX

► 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 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).
