Comparing 7900 Vs 7800 video cards
I am looking over the specifications of the 7900GTX, 7900GT, and 7800GTX and this is what I am finding. Please comment if I am wrong or missing something in the specifications.
In comparing the 7900GT vs the 7800GTX they are very similar in every aspect. The only difference are the higher clock speeds (not in all models), My 7800GTX is faster than quite a few of the 7900GT's. This said it would seem that the 7900 is an overclocked version of the 7800GTX (In some instances). Pipelines are the same at 24, Ramdac is the same at 400MHz, OpenGL is the same at 2.0. Also if the 7900GT is better than the 7800GTX's why are the 7800GTX's still 150 - 200 dollars more?
In comparing the 7900GTX with the 7800GTX 512MB it seems the same as above, the 7900GTX is an overclocked version of the 7800GTX 512MB. Since the 7900GTX's became available it seems that the 7800GTX 512MB is no longer available to purchase. I have not seen it on newegg or anywhere else.
