They said this new graphic card is so similar to GeForce 7900GTX, not only in appearance, and also the specification. It is driven by NVIDIA G71 core @ 650MHz, owning 24 Pixel Shader pineline, 16 ROP and 8 Vertex Shader engine. Of course, the heat sink is also the same as GeForce 7900GTX in Dual Slot design.
The only difference is focus on the memory module. The memory size is kept in 512MB, but it has a little bit lowered clock speed than GTX in 1.6GHz. The new clock rate is 1.38GHz, the same as GT, where -1.4ns GDDR3 is used.
The price is somewhere between GeForce 7900GT and GeForce 7900GTX, say $249 to $469. While there is no information whether this card would appear in the retail market, it’s worried whether it would overlap the market of GeForce 7950GT, its sibling.
