GeForce 7 Series GPUs Model Comparison

4. eVGA e-GeForce 7950GT KO

eVGA has its own 7950GT card, carefully "boosted" up to 600MHz, as the sticker on the retail package indicates. Currently, eVGA has three variations of the 7950GT series, with different core and memory clocks:

Model Number
e-GeForce 7950 GT Superclocked 512MB
600 MHz
1.45 GHz
e-GeForce 7950 GT KO 512MB
560 MHz
1.45 GHz
e-GeForce 7950GT
550 MHz
1.40 GHz

The fastest eVGA 7950GT card you can buy comes with 600MHz/1.45GHz clock speeds. For our tests, eVGA provided us with the "e-GeForce 7950 GT Superclocked 512MB" model. The card can be found at online stores, for the retail price of €290~310. The retail box is rather typical and includes a lot of information, including support for the latest standards.

The retail package is complete with printed manual, drivers and of course cables:

To sum it up, the retail package includes:

  • A 7950GT card
  • A printed user's guide
  • 2x EVGA case stickers
  • 2x DVI-D to VGA converters
  • A 6 pin PCI-E power cable
  • A S-Video cable (HDTV support)
  • Software CD with drivers
  • Retail version "Call Of Duty 2"

Looking at the card, it is mid-sized, and will fit without many problems in your mid-ATX box. It uses a normal sized air cooling system with copper heatsink. If you look carefully, you will see that the copper profile covers the memory chips, helping improve overclocking capabilities.

The card needs a PCI-E power supply in order to operate. You need at least a 600W SLI certified PSU if you decide to go SLI.

The card has two DVI-D outputs and one TV-out output.

On the back, we can see the board is free of any cooling fins or plates that we saw with the previous cards. Instead, four screws keep the cooling system in place.

The memory is clocked at 725MHz, while the GPU at 600MHz. The eVGA 7950GT uses Infineon 1.4ns DDR3 memory modules ( HYB18H512321BF-14), providing a total memory size of 512MB RAM.
