Today marks another big release for NVIDIA as they officially launch their second GeForce 7 series video card in the "7800 GT". This card is of course a lower spec'd model in comparison to the already released GTX variant, and naturally offered in a lower price bracket. The card differs to the GTX with 20 pixel pipelines and 7 vertex pipelines versus the 24 pixel / 8 vertex pipelines of the GTX. GPU and MEM clocks are also lower at 400MHz and 1000Mhz respectively.
Given the NDA's just expired, theres a mass of links surfacing with stacks of benchies and info on the new GT cards, as per the below links :-
Following the release of the Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX GPU sometime last month, NVIDIA had just started rolling out the technologically stunning, GeForce 7 series of GPUs. While the 7800 GTX based graphics card are the fastest anyone can buy with money now, it remains as one of the most expensive one available in the market. This comes naturally, since it gives top of the line performance. Retailing at an average of late SGD$900 to early SGD$1200, these cards might not be attractive even to the rich. While NVIDIA needs to cater to as many market sectors as possible, they saw a need to have a card that will provide next generation performance, yet costs lower then that. A new GPU is now introduced, the NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT.
