NVIDIA to shrink G72 to make G78

The G78 will be a 65nm version of the G72. Instead of being themed for basic video or games, it is themed around a low-power, Vista-ready solution. This G78 will only be expected to run Aero glass, an occasional DVD, and flash-based games. It will be produced with the G84 series, have a 64 bit memory interface, and will cost $60 or less.Source: The Inquirer

NVIDIA- We need a cheap part to sell for Vista. A G80 with it's balls chopped off would cost too much

Random person in board room- How about we take a previous generation, shrink it to 65nm, and get it certified for Windows Vista Premium?

NVIDIA- Awesome idea, we shall take our G72, shrink it to a 65nm process, and call it the G78.

G72 is the core of the 7300 GS. So the first 65nm GPU will be a 7300 GS..
