NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS AGP

NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS AGP Image NVIDIA G71 Image
The GeForce 7900 GS AGP was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2006. Built on the 90 nm process, and based on the G71 graphics processor, in its G71-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 20 pixel shaders and 7 vertex shaders, 20 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 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 450 MHz, memory is running at 660 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS AGP for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1280x720.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x S-Video. GeForce 7900 GS AGP is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
