Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

GeForce 7950 GT is targeted to users that want a high-end video card but don’t want or don’t have the money to buy the most high-end one like GeForce 7900 GTX, GeForce 7950 GX2 or cards from the new GeForce 8800 family. Let’s take a look at the performance of the GeForce 7950 GT model from Zogis and compare it to other video cards available.

Figure 1: Zogis GeForce 7950 GT.

GeForce 7950 GT is positioned between GeForce 7900 GT and GeForce 7900 GTX, running at 550 MHz and accessing its memory at 1.4 GHz (700 MHz x 2). GeForce 7900 GT runs at 450 MHz and accesses its memory at 1.32 GHz (660 MHz x 2) while GeForce 7900 GTX runs at 650 MHz and accesses its memory at 1.6 GHz (800 MHz x 2). These three video cards have a 256-bit memory interface and 24 pixel shader units.

GeForce 7950 GX2 is a totally different animal, as it is two chips connected in parallel, each one running at 500 MHz and accessing its own 512 MB memory (for a total of 1 GB memory) at 1.2 GHz (600 MHz x 2).

For a full comparison between GeForce 7950 GT and other chips from NVIDIA, please read our tutorial NVIDIA Chips Comparison Table. On ATI Chips Comparison Table you can compare them to competitors from ATI.

We ran PowerStrip and this model from Zogis wasn’t overclocked, i.e., it was really running at the default clock settings defined by NVIDIA.

On Figures 2 and 3 you can see the reviewed card from Zogis. Since it follows the designed set by NVIDIA for the GeForce 7950 GT cards from other manufacturers should achieve the same performance as this model from Zogis.
