Asus to make dual-core GeForce 7800 GTX

Posted on Thursday, June 23 2005 @ 16:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Asus has canceled the development of a dual-core GeForce 6800 card but announced a new graphics card with two GeForce 7800 cores. Earlier this year the company showed off a dual-core GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics card prototype and also indicated that it might launch a dual 6600GT - but those are now cancelled.
According to a report, ASUS EN6800GT Dual was 1.7 times faster compared to a single-chip NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT graphics card. With 32 pixel and 12 vertex processors, such graphics card might end up as a more powerful compared to the forthcoming single-chip products based on the code-named R520 and G70 visual processing units from ATI Technologies and NVIDIA Corp., graphics cards makers thought.
