Based around a surprisingly small 196mm2 core manufactured on a 90u process, the GeForce 7900 GS operates with reference clock speeds of 450MHz/1.32GHz and is armed with an impressive list of features. The 7900 GS has 7 Vertex Shaders, 20 Pixel Pipelines, and 16 ROPs. Rounding out the specifications we also have a 256MB frame buffer that utilizes a 256-bit memory interface, full DX9 support including Shader Model 3.0, as well as NVIDIA's own PureVideo technology allowing for hardware-based video decode acceleration. Perhaps most importantly however, is the fact that the GeForce 7900 GS will be available today in volume at most major online and brick and mortar retailers.
