XFX have long been on the front line of graphic equipment, using cutting edge cooling and the latest chips to deliver top of the range performance. Today, true to form, XFX have unveiled their latest cards with the 7950GT and the 7900GS.


Microsoft® Windows Vista™ users will experience an even more spectacular 3-D experience when using this card. An essential component for an HDCP setup, the GeForce® 7950 GT features a core clock of 550MHZ, with PCI Express® graphics bus technology. It has a 256-bit memory interface and 44.8 GB/sec. bandwidth.

The card will naturally support Shader Model 3.0, Ultra Shadow II, DirectX 9.0, SLi Ready and full HDR support, creating an outstanding gaming experience and making the card fully suitable for 3D applications such as AutoCAD and Bryce


Secondly we have the GeForce 7900GS which comes loaded with all the capabilitys of the 7 series plus Dual DVI, enabling it to drive the industry’s largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays. There is also a DVI to Analog Adapter that converts VGA outputs to a DVI connector. The card features 20 pixel processors, seven vertex processors and 256-bit memory bus.

Already the outcome is looking good:


"So the GeForce 7900 GS Extreme card was showing leading performance compared to the reference model and Sparkle 7900 GS. In terms of the generic gaming "experience" it's relatively small, think 5% better performance. But overclocked .. sheesjh ... it's a friggin monster !"

Mr. Smith
[QUOTE=XMS]P5W DH supports Crossfire and unofficially SLI and is based around 975X chipset.

P5B doesn't support crossfire but does unofficially support SLI and is based around the newer 965 chipset (yes it's newer).

P5B's also generally clock higher.

(and in case ur wondering - as we proved earlier in this thread - there is NO difference in performance between 965 & 975 chipsets),[/QUOTE]

So, is the P5B better than the P5W DH? i might start a thread and see what ppl think. I really appreciate your help mate!

I HAVE to have SLi support. You made that sould like the P5B doesn't support either SLi or xfire!?

07-09-2006, 13:24:05

Looks like the P5B is your best choice as it works with SLI and also clocks a bit better. Seems like a no brainer to me :) Then you can keep the cards you already have as well!

Cool. P5B it is.
Dono mate...
Saying that one 7900 runs at x16, the other at x2...

07-09-2006, 14:17:08

Dunno about that one, sorry mate.

07-09-2006, 14:39:26

P5B will not do SLI as it runs as you said in 16, 4

People on here have said it will... I don't want to buy a mobo that won't work with my components! I'd be gutted!

The P5w-dh will work with my 7900's sli with hacked drivers?

07-09-2006, 14:46:22

dude, if u want sli at its full potential (not hacked makeshifts) wait for a sli board to come out, or get one of the older ones

Mr. Smith
True. I wanted to OC too... ah well... ain't gonna happen.

Cheers for all the efforts
