At first I removed the top cover of heat sink to inspect and clean it from dust if any. I hope this help anyone who may want to install and use a video card like this as I thought this is a wothwile update to use on a old PC set up. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Other times, chipmakers deactivate portions of a chip purely for product segmentation reasons. Point of View Information: I was able to reuse all my old PC set up and not have to modify or change any of the equipment that I already was using with my old PC. Video never been an issue, as long as screen resolution stayed x, but six month ago I got a news LCD monitor, and my original FX was simply not enough to drive it:

Graphics Previous page Next page. Add to this the fact that some manufacturers are shipping boards with higher than stock core and memory speeds, and this part could definitely push an AGP system as far as it is likely to go.

Series 7 graphics cores however are a far more efficient product. What xgp cool is the high-end screensavers can run and of course DVDs.

But there are multiple issues 7800fs patience required before it starts working well. Well known for glitches and returns for servicing until BFG closed down. Sometimes, a portion of a chip just doesn’t come out working properly, but the GPU can still be used in a partial configuration like this one.


Last it displayed was the first 10min. See Nvidia new.

NVIDIA’s AGP Only GeForce 7800 GS

I also tried a with MBytes, and, paradoxically, apg was stable — the machine never crashed, but there were some delays in text rendering when I scroll too fast. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!

Fast and powerful, and runs cool even when overclocked thanks to the big fan and quality heatsink from BFG. I used a PSU with dual 12v 18A outputs no problem.

Interestingly enough this product might swing between GeForce GT and Ultra performance here and there due to the similar frame buffer bandwidth and equal pipelines. It is also unexpectedly quiet. Chaos Theory Performance Final Words.

It is telling that the GS was released not long after. The upshot of it all is that the GeForce GS should still be one of the fastest graphics cards ever to slide into an AGP slot, but it won’t be a titan of graphics performance like a five-hundred-dollar GTX. Whatever the situation, there are plenty of people out there looking to extend the life of AGP systems in one way or another.

They’ve chopped down the G70’s 24 pixel 78000gs by two “quads,” so that 16 pixel shaders remain.

BFG Tech’s GeForce 7800 GS OC AGP graphics card

Linux open source driver supports x, but it does tot support hardware acceleration, and besides some of my software requires and relies on NVIDIA Open GL libraries. Performance Quake 4 Performance Splinter Cell: This has the Nvidia PureVideo which was improved on for the card.


Of course, because this is a BFG Tech card, the “overclocked” speed carries no real risk with it. This card blows ATI Radeon out of the water because the architecture is more recent, and when you turn on heavy anti-aliasing and high resolutions, it performs better than qgp cards — both in pricing and in speed.

7800bs item doesn’t belong on this page. Why do I need it? I actually had to turn down alot of the video options to get my PC to behave with the old GT card.

Review: NVIDIA GeForce GS AGP shootout – Graphics –

With the new card I was able to turn up the video settings and see all of the special effects that I was missing. Other times, chipmakers deactivate portions of a chip purely for product segmentation reasons.

I love the look of it. 78000gs

I can get the correct resolution, but at the expense of 3D acceleration. The cost of keeping up with the pace of technology is certainly steep, so upgrade cycles for some people stretch quite a bit longer than others. The lowest-priced item that has been used or worn previously.

Show More Show Less. This blue-and-green beauty features 7800s single-slot cooler, an AGP connector, and a four-pin Molex auxiliary power connector that’s friendly to older power supplies.
