Geforce 7600 GT will still be 128 bit card but so also are the X1600XT/PROs. We reckon that 7600 GS is meant to fight X1600PRO and both G73 based 7600 cards will end up with a 128 bit memory interface.
I suspect that both 7600 GT and GS will be able to outperform the current X1600 XT and PRO cards and 7600 cards will be able to do 12 pixels shaders per clock. It is just enough to match ATI's offering.
But beware! ATI has X1800GTO cards coming soon powered with 12 pipelines and 500 1000 MHz clocks and 256 bit interface. We think that this card has to smash Geforce 7600 GT performance as 7600 GT is 128 bit only card while ATI card works with twice as fast 256 bit memory interface. It's a pay back strategy and we can bet that both cards will be priced similarly.
