NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX
The GeForce 7900 GTX was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2006. Built on the 90 nm process, and based on the G71 graphics processor, in its G71-U-N-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The G71 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 196 mm² and 278 million transistors. It features 24 pixel shaders and 8 vertex shaders, 24 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has placed 512 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 650 MHz, memory is running at 800 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1680x1050.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 84 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. GeForce 7900 GTX is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface.
