Its a NVIO chip I believe used for outputting sound through HDMI or something of that sort.
That's a pretty big chip (not to mention hot) for handling a menial task. :eek:

My XFX 7950GT was the bomb digity.
didn't you have the AGP version of it, that card was nice but sucked because most of its time was spent being rma'd

i hated that agp 7950, no matter what you did they always died.

Lawl i never had a AGP Computer before yet i keep hereing about those New ati HD 4770s and there agp status

These GPUS Show that Nvidia already has the technology ready to use it makes me tense cause now im waiting for 480 shadders silly GDDR5 getting pumped wattage and runing at 4000+ Mhz and a 512 bit interface with 40nm and maybe crazy custom heatsinks so we can overclock the cores to amds "1ghz" mark so we can destroy them+ my freind has AMD Card and i srsly cant probable switch from the nice packaging reviews and quality of the GTX 260 i got + 8800gt that nvidia offers :p

No i had the AGP 7800GS then upgraded to 7950GT. I bios modded it then eventualy volt modded it. Got a VF900 on it and ramped up the clocks. After that i paid a very small amount (50 bucks) and got another Asus 7950GT. Bios and Volt modded that and ran them in SLI. Then i had a serious cpu bottleneck :roll: It was still an awesome rig and to this day i love playnig with my Asus 7950GT. (The XFX one died and through RMA they replaced it with my 8800GS)

This is true.

So, why is nVidia still giving us 96 shaders? That is ridiculous for 40nm.

These must simply be the starter set, the midrange chips. I'm certain we'll see GTX 280M with 192 SP's soon enough, alongside mobile Quad cores.
There already is a GTX 280M. It's based on 55nm G92, and has 128 shaders, 256-bit GDDR3.

Not true

You seemed to take a superior tone and explain to me the reason why ATI's 800 can't beat nVidia's 240. That is, without actually knowing why. I understand you're new. No hard feelings towards those that learn.
I never said that nVidia cards beat ATI cards. I may own a GTX 260, but that was a choice I debated on for like 2 months. I am an AMD fanboy, kinda so I try avoid seeming bias. A little too hard apparently.

Yeah, Processors I know. GPU's...lets just say may card before my GTX was a 7600 GT from 3 years ago. I am behind.

And thanks for the info. on that green chip cause that was bugging me. It had heat sink holes and everything.

I guess I dont mind power usage too much, but have you guys seen the MSI EX625? Really nice laptop that is pretty slim considering it has a 4670 in it. Great laptop, but I wish it had a led backlit screen and a little bit stronger video card. Any 40nm chip that is faster than a 4670 is good enough by me. Actually looking at the ones with 48 shaders, though that might be slower who knows.

My 9800gts m keeps up quite well with everything. I think its just in how the chip is built honestly.
