We've uncovered some details about NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 7900GT

Surprise, surprise - here is NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 7900GT.
NVIDIA's newest GPU, dubbed G71, will debut at CeBit 2006 in Hannover
in a few weeks.

NVIDIA's new 7900GT is expected to use new Samsung GDDR3 memory that's
reported to be operating at 1.4ns but frequencies are unconfirmed at
this point. In contrast, ATI's X1800XT uses GDDR3 memory with a 1.2ns
time running at 1400MHz. NVIDIA's 7800GTX 512 uses memory running at an
effective rate of 1.7GHz.

We have a few images of the 7900GT from NVIDIA (right). The 7900GT
will feature a single slot cooling design, although the cooler
demonstrated in the images we captured is not the stock cooler that
will appear on the final design. An interesting engineering element on
the reference board includes a set of 4-pin leads for what we are told
is for an audio jack -- or at least the leads for an audio jack. If it
is indeed an input for audio signals (appears to be SPDIF), then for
upcoming graphics cards that boast HDMI connectivity, this would
definitely make sense. As for the current reference design, there is no
such connector featured and we will have to wait for final designs to
see what happens.

NVIDIA roadmaps have confirmed to us that the 90nm 7900GT will feature
24 pipelines with a 450MHz core clock. Like the GeForce 7800GTX series,
the 7900GT comes with this warning:

Note: For two GeForce 7900 GT-based graphics cards running in NVIDIA
SLI configurations, a minimum 450W system power supply (with 12V rating
of 26A) is recommended.

Quick specifications for GeForce 7900GT from NVIDIA documents:

* PCIe native
* 450MHz core frequency
* 256-bit memory interface
* 40GB/sec. memory bandwidth
* 11B pixels/sec. fill rate
* ~900M vertices/sec.
* 24 pixels per cycle
* Built in dual-link DVI support for 2560x1600 resolution

I think most of the posters on this NG are more interested in cards that end
in Ti than GT. unless it's a 6600 GT of course *shudder*

Ti? Nvidia hasn't made Ti video chipsets for years now. GTX is their top
performing cards.
