The Inquirer says the new NVIDIA G70 (aka GeForce 7800 GTX) is nothing more than a tweaked NV40 (GeForce 6800) core with additional pipelines and some new features.
So the GeForce 7800 GTX isn't really a brand new design but just a redesigned old architecture. But it doesn't really matters as it is faster and cooler than the previous generation. And more important is that it wasn't a paper launch, the GeForce 7800 GTX was shipping at the day of launch.
