Perhaps not as exciting to some of our young viewers as the release of NVIDIA's new pixel model, Luna; none the less this is far more tangible for all of you. The Inquirer
is reporting that NVIDIA's new graphics card, G70, now known as the GeForce 7800 GTX, will be carrying with it a the following specs:
- 110nm Die Process
- 302 Million Transistors - Biggest chip ever built for graphics use.
- 430MHz Core Clock
- 1200MHz Memory Clock w/ 256bit GDDR3 Interface
- 24 Pixels Per Clock
- 8 Vertex Shader Units
- Peak Fill Rate: 6.88 Billion/second
- Peak Power Consumption: 100-110w
- 3DMark05 Score: Approximately 7700-7800 3dmarks
What I found most interesting is how The Inquirer states that many senior editors are referring to this chip as simply "NV47" as it's really nothing more than what the NV47 was supposed to be, a refresh. The launch of the GeForce 7800 is right around the corner, so I imagine time will tell all the rest.
