Tech Hounds takes another look at the GeForce 7 series, focusing on how the architecture handles texture dependent games like Quake 4 and shader heavy games like F.E.A.R. They examine just how pixel shader quads, core and memory clock
influence performance in this two games. It certainly will be very
interesting to see what the next generation will bring.
"Designed with 80nm process technology, the device has a 12.8GB/sec
processing speed, 30% faster than the company's previous prototype, which
allows it to transfer the equivalent of up to six DVD-quality movies every
second. The 512Mbit GDDR4 graphics DRAM comes with 32 input/output pins,
each of which transfers data at 3.2Gbit/sec. In October, Samsung completed
samples of a 256Mbit GDDR4 that processed video (and accompanying audio) at
10GB per second."
