Introduction

BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC
BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC
When NVIDIA introduced the 7800 GT a couple of months ago, many of the add-in board partners already had retail cards on the shelves. In fact, many of those AIB partners even had variants of the 7800 GT on those shelves that were clocked slightly faster than the stock reference designs. These factory overclocked cards have become so popular that would you be shopping for a new 7-series card today you would probably have a harder time finding a stock board than one of these faster variants.

BFG Tech was one those partner than had their factory overclocked 7800 GT OC ready and on shelves on the day of the launch. The 7800 GT OC, as the OC tag implies, has its core set to 425MHz, 25MHz over stock, and the memory set to 1,050MHz, 25MHz over stock. The board in every other respect is identical to the stock reference design.

In this review I'll be taking a look at two of these cards, retail packaged, sent to me by BFG Tech. Having two of them will obviously let me check out SLi performance, which will naturally be the focus of this review, but I will also run in single card mode and compare directly to a single reference 7800 GT to give readers a reference point for the performance of the 7800 GT OC.
