Test: 3Dmark2005 (Score)
Because 3Dmark2005 Pro is fully
optimized for SLI, the performance gains you will see from
SLI configurations in this synthetic benchmark are huge and
do not reflect real world performance in the slightest.
These benchmarks are included purely because so many users
can relate to this benchmark program. As you can see, the
GeForce 7800 GTX SLI configuration is twice as fast as the
single card setup. The overclocked GeForce 7800 GTX is
marginally faster than the standard configuration. The
GeForce 7800 GTX is a whooping 55% faster than the Radeon
Test: 3Dmark2005 (GT1)
Here is a look at the frame rates these
cards were producing in the first game test in 3Dmark2005.
As you can see, at 1600x1200 with 4xAA/8xAF enabled the
GeForce 7800 GTX is 64% faster than the Radeon X850XT, which
is of course very impressive. Furthermore the GeForce 7800
GTX in SLI is another 69% faster when compared to the single

Again 3Dmark2003 does not show true
real-world SLI performance, but for those 3Dmark fans here
are the results you can expect to see. How do you like that?
A score of 18469pts at 1600x1200 with No AA/AF enabled. This
is a 67% performance improvement for the SLI configuration
over the single card setup. The 4xAA/8xAF results favor the
single GeForce 7800 GTX over the Radeon X850XT PE by just
Test: 3Dmark2003 (GT4)
Here are the frame rates that these
cards were producing in the fourth 3Dmark2003 game test. As
you can see, at 1600x1200 with 4xAA/8xAF enabled the GeForce
7800 GTX is 57fps faster than the Radeon X850XT. Furthermore
the GeForce 7800 GTX in SLI is another 53fps faster when
compared to the single card configuration.
