The GeForce 7800 GS AGP is for the AGP user who is sitting on the fence waiting to see how both of these new technologies play out, after all it wouldn’t make much sense to go from one dead platform to another that’s about to die shortly. But at the same time while they’re sitting on that fence they still want to see what all the fuss around shader model 3.0 and HDR gaming is all about.
For gamers who are in this situation, EVGA’s e-GeForce 7800 GS CO Superclock board is the fastest AGP graphics card overall on the market right now. Sure there are benchmarks where the X800-series cards outrun it (the most prominent being F.E.A.R.), but the e-GeForce 7800 GS CO Superclock delivers better overall performance. By “overall” we mean in a wide variety of games and applications, running at or near the top in all of the titles we tested. The X800/X850 cards can’t keep up in titles such as Quake 4, IL-2 Sturmovik, and Serious Sam 2. The e-GeForce 7800 GS CO Superclock also boasts a better feature set than the Radeon cards do, it supports HDR with floating-point blending as well as shader model 3.0. On top of that, you’ve got PureVideo support and transparency AA.
EVGA video cards have attained "Designed for Windows XP" certification. These video cards have passed rigorous testing and take full advantage of all of the features and capabilities of Microsoft Windows XP.
