Current Nvidia confronted us with their most up-to-date graphics result meant to capture the cheap high-end gaming arena, which was antecedently prevailed through its own GeForce 7900GT as well ATI-founded boards selling in the range.
These 2 fresh 7900 serial graphics boards will fill in the gap allowed for through recent mainstream products, and those higher-end products that extend to be sold for over. The fresh 7900GS and 7950GT products are available already from a number of producers and retailers, selling for approximately and, respectively. This invests the GeForce 7950GT as the logical substitute for the 7900GT, as it price only a fraction more yet should deliver excellent function.
While the GeForce 7900GT was a fairly effective product, I commonly detected the competing Radeon X1800XT to be a superior functioner. We then received the somewhat more valuable X1900GT, which to be honest did very little in ATI's favor. The X1900GT featured more pixel pipelines than the X1800XT, but at the similar time it boasted a lower core and storage clock frequency.
The question to be asked just is how will this fresh GeForce 7950GT equate to ATI's Radeon X1900XT? On paper it would look to be anyone's guess, yet that is perfectly what we are here to find out now. However, early we do that let's only assume a moment to meet the newcomer. Dressed in shiny silver packaging this Inno3D GeForce 7950GT means business, boasting a core clock of 550MHz and a storege frequency of 1.4GHz.
Furthermore, with 512MB of GDDRIII memory on a 256-bit bus, the 7950GT has lots of memory bandwidth at its administration. Characteristics such as double DVI, VIVO and HDTV also include to this cards appeal. Unluckily similar the majority of Inno3D products, the GeForce 7950GT is nothing particular to appear at, as it sports a reference-like plan. While the green PCB is instead painful, InnoIIID has done a nice job in spicing this otherwise bland graphics board through whacking the entire-aluminum Zalman VF700 over the GPU.
Recent GeForce 7900GT cards are retailing for roughly, while the fresh 7950GT is said to cost.
The 7950GT core has been encouraged through 100MHz for a entire 550MHz. The storage frequency has been somewhat raised from 1320MHz on the 7900GT, to 1400MHz for the 7950GT. Both characteristic the similar amount of vertex and pixel shader units, and are planned utilizing a 90nm process. The GeForce 7900GT was fixed to 256MB of onboard storage, whereas the 7950GT characteristics 512MB. Other than this there are no further improvement found on the 7950GT, or in other words it is a mere improvement of the 7900GT.
