PC Magazine: Dell XPS M1710
"The real thrill of an XPS notebook is its performance, and the M1710 doesn't disappoint. It's the first gaming notebook to arrive in PC Magazine Labs that's built with nVidia's GeForce Go 7900 GTX, by far the most powerful mobile graphics chipset available."

GamePC: Pushing G71 Further - XFX's GeForce 7900 GTX Extreme Edition
"In both single-card and multi-card scenarios, the 7900 GTX provided us with our highest benchmarks seen to date...these cards can certainly live up to the claim of being one of the fastest non-overclocked cards on the market."

   
Hardware Zone: MSI NX7900GT-T2D256E (GeForce 7900 GT 256MB)
"…From the benchmarks, the GeForce 7900 GT deserves its claim as the second most powerful GPU in the NVIDIA hierarchy."

   
Box Gods.com: XFX GeForce 7900GT 256MB
"…When we saw the initial performance numbers on the 7900GT we knew we would have to get our hands on one and the guys at SilverPCS had them in stock =). Overall, I think the XFX 7900GT is a great budget buy. It performs very well and doesn't have a divorce inducing price tag."

   
AMDZone: Leadtek WinFast PX7900GT TDH Extreme
"Leadtek's card seems to be based off Nvidia's reference design like all the 7900 cards on the market today and as it is an "Extreme" cards comes pre-overclocked at a 525MHz core and a 715MHz memory clockspeed. In comparison, a standard 7900 GT comes clocked in at 450MHz for the core and 615MHz for the memory, so this is a nice bump of 75MHz for the core and 100MHz for the memory."

   
Overclockers New Zealand: XFX 7900GT Video Card Review
"Nvidia's 7900 GT is an excellent choice for the performance seekers, offering a new level of performance, which is faster than the Nvidia's previous flagship card 7800GTX. The 7900GT offers an excellent performance/price ratio, with 80~90% of 7900GTX's performance at 3/5 the price."

   
Trusted Reviews: NVIDIA 7900 GT Card Roundup
"The 7900 GT is the new 6800 GT. It’s amazing value and isn't far off the speed of nVidia's flagship 7900 GTX, for a fraction of the price. From what we've seen, it looks to overclock really well too! It's also a single slot solution and draws a lot less power than competing products, making it perfect for SFF machines."

   
Hardware Zone: MSI NX7900GT-T2D256E (GeForce 7900 GT 256MB)
"From the benchmarks, the GeForce 7900 GT deserves its claim as the second most powerful GPU in the NVIDIA hierarchy. This may upset some owners of the GeForce 7800 GTX as this new GPU holds the edge for both performance and price over the former leader. But then that's progress - lower prices along with improved performance is just what everyone has been hoping to see with new products."

   
Adrian's Rojak Pot: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX Graphics Card Review!
"Compared to our initial experience with the GeForce 7800 GTX, the GeForce 7900 GTX actually felt faster right out of the box. When we started comparing it against the other cards, the difference was even more apparent."
"Because of its tremendous processing power, we are proud to award it our Reviewer's Choice Award!"

   
Neoseeker: BFG GeForce 7900 GTX OC SLI
"I'd be stating the painfully obvious if I said that the BFG GeForce 7900 GTX was a screamer, but I'll do it anyway -- the BFG GeForce 7900 GTX is a screamer."

   
Legit Reviews: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT Video Card Review
"As an enthusiast and over clocker I have to say that if you were planning to upgrade or building a new system I highly recommend looking long and hard at the 7900 GT. If you were thinking of spending within $75 of its asking price I would still look at the performance of this card and beg, steal, or borrow enough to purchase one."

   
GD Hardware: Leadtek 7900GT
"If you have the ends, and want a huge upgrade from even the 6800-series of GeForce cards, than the 7900GT is definitely your ticket to ride. If you feel adventurous, then you should use the Coolbits tool to overclock the card and really step up performance. There’s really no reason to look anywhere else for a graphics card – if I were going to buy any card today, the 7900GT would be my top pick."

   
Avault: NVIDIA Spring Update Featuring EVGA and XFX 7900 GTX
"XFX has produced the fastest 7900 GTX to date with their 700 MHz core and 1800 MHz memory clocks. I would be willing to call up Vegas and put my money down on EVGA matching the speeds with a future KO SUPERCLOCK part. The thing about EVGA is they are the guys who see what you have and say, "Wait here, I’ll be right back." Then after you hear some pounding in the garage they walk out with a glowing product so special you can see the aura around it. As for what is on the table now from both companies either will satisfy your need for speed."

   
HardOCP: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 Series Preview
"Go out and buy a GeForce 7900 GTX SLI setup as it will provide you the best overall gaming experience on the planet. If you can afford that, let us suggest you grab you one of those big ass widescreen displays too. And don’t weenie out at 24” like we did, you might as well go for the gusto! "

   
Guru3D: GeForce 7600GT, 7900 GT & 7900 GTX
"Sweet momma .. daddy likes some sugar in his coffee and this card (7900 GT) is the sugar! "

Tech Report: NVIDIA's GeForce 7600 GT and 7900 series GPUs
"I'd say the GeForce 7900 GT is in pretty good shape regardless. At about $299, a non-"factory overclocked" should offer more card for the money than the incumbent GeForce 7800 GT, until now a favorite of ours at this price point. "

   
Hot Hardware: NVIDIA's GeForce 7 Update: Introducing the 7900 GTX, 7900 GT & 7600 GT
"Things just get better for NVIDIA with the GeForce 7900GT. This card is sure to be popular amongst performance enthusiasts. If street prices settle around $299 as we suspect they will, the GeForce 7900 GT is going to be immensely popular. The card offers excellent performance with a single slot design, at a very aggressive price point. "

   
FiringSquad: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX/7900 GT Performance Preview
"Between the two GPUs, the slam dunk product in our opinion is NVIDIA’s GeForce 7900 GT. For $300 you’re basically getting a graphics card that delivers performance that’s a little greater than the GeForce 7800 GTX (typically the 7900 GT runs between 5-8% faster than a 7800 GTX), but in a smaller, cooler-running package. With the GeForce 7900 GT, NVIDIA’s basically established a new level of performance at the $300 price point... "

Nvnews: EVGA e-GeForce 7900 GT CO Superclocked Review
"Out of the box the EVGA 7900 GT CO SUPERCLOCKED is one very impressive card. This is undoubtedly the fastest mid-range card I have ever tested staying with or bettering the 7800 GTX in the benchmarks used in this preview. "

   
Bjorn3d: XFX GeForce 7900 GTX XXX, 7900 GT XXX and 7600 GT XXX
"While the 7900 GTX is a very exciting and powerful card, the 7900 GT and 7600 GT really wowed us and captured most of our excitement for this launch. "

   
HardOCP: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 Series Preview
"Go out and buy a GeForce 7900 GTX SLI setup as it will provide you the best overall gaming experience on the planet. If you can afford that, let us suggest you grab you one of those big ass widescreen displays too. And don’t weenie out at 24” like we did, you might as well go for the gusto! "

Neoseeker: EVGA GeForce 7900 GTX Preview
"Overall, I am quite pleased with NVIDIA's latest addition to the GeForce family (GeForce 7900 GTX) -- who wouldn't be? In my opinion, this entire product launch comes down to three key points: same price, same power consumption, better performance. That's all that can really be said without being redundant. "

   
Guru3D: GeForce 7600GT, 7900 GT & 7900 GTX
"It's again the fastest flagship graphics card available (marginally here and there with the X1900 XTX from ATI) yet it's price ... yeah that's what I like the most. You want to know why? "

   
FiringSquad; NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX/7900 GT Performance Preview
"In the case of the GeForce 7900 GTX, NVIDIA cranks up the clock speeds significantly to deliver a part that outruns the so-called "GeForce 7800 Ultra" of yesteryear, the GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB. This is a pretty nice achievement, especially considering the GeForce 7900 GTX’s $500 price tag "

   
PC Perspective: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX, 7900 GT and 7600 GT Review
"The 7900 GTX is an outstanding performer in all of our gaming tests..."
