Heh i guess this time nVIDIA wont let the GT version to easily reach the higher-end version (i.e GTX). smaller heatsink , less pipes & much less mem bandwidth.

Any news on a 7800 vanilla or Ultra on the horizon with this launch?

Wonder if theres a way to unlock the extra quad and the vertex....

I think those specs are incorrect, the 7800GT only has 7 vertex shader's.

According to rojakpost's updated chart .. it says 8

Wow impressive results, with the high overclock it beats a stock 7800GTX, the GT seems more balanced. One more evidence the 7800GTX gpu needs far more memory bandwidth.
ATi must be wondering how to counter that, when they launch R520, 7800GT will be sub $400.

the 7800 GT looks to be a great performer

Yeah,it has 4 pipes less and still stays pretty close to the GTX.Maybe the difference shows at 1900x1200 4xAA :p

That chinees site's bench's are a bit inaccurate in my book.

They are benching a overclocked ( from factory out ) GT with 450 clock ( XFX ), vs a default 430 GTX clock.

Thats kinde inaccurate, sinds most GTX's are sold these days with 450 to 490 clocks. Same with the memory 1050 ( default needs to be 1000 ) vs 1200 ( where you again have lots that are at 1300 ).

Thats why the difference is so small. The extra 20mhz over the GTX, helps to compensate the 4 pipes & 1 vertex less. Same deal with the memory.

Put a few factory oc'ed GTX's vs those benchie's and the difference wont be so small ;)

That chineze site overclocked their 7800GT to 510/1250. :eek:
The fan looks pretty crappy too.A good fan could make 550MHz eazy.
Anyway I'll wait for the most known sites to post their previews before I make my judgement.

Im surprised it keeps up with the gtx, if the price falls below 400 bucks this should be a pretty good seller.

Thos specs are indeed incorrect the GT has 7 vertex's i got my hands on benchies and pics of an evga 7800 GT froma friend of a friend and im going to post them over at my website soon :)

Sweet! That 3D mark score is scarily close to a GTX :eek:

Yep 20 pipes at 400+ is still going to rock the last generation, and if you get two in SLi after the prices drop it could be really nice.

ATi better get with it.

What I don't understand is how the rest of this "generation" is going to shape up. Judging from what we have today, it would seem that a 7800nu would probably be a 16-pipe, 350Mhz part. Now, how would this be any different from a 6800GT? Nvidia PR can go sing all songs it wants to about the so-called "architectural" changes to the shaders, but the truth is that the 7800's are nothing but fatter 6800's. Not that I'm complaining, the performance benefit of the wider core is unquestionable, but I fail to see how Nvidia can introduce any more G7x-based products.

Traditionally, a lower-rung product of the current generation usually blows the smithereens off the next higher rung product of the previous generation. The 7800GT sticks to this formula since it trashes the 6800U, but if you look carefully, in doing so Nvidia had to make the 7800GT a real monster of a card that is scarily close to its big brother GTX. Consider the fact that the GTX is $600 MSRP while the GT is $450 MSRP, and I see a lot of GTX owners raising their eyebrows.

Now, I am aware that Nvidia had announced that the NV4x series will continue to sell, and the G7x series supposed to be more of an extension rather than a replacement. I was initially skeptical about this, but it seems more and more likely to me that this is true. The 7800GT is already down to 20 pipes. If they go any lower (16), you would end up with a card that is more or less *identical* to an NV40 (maybe a tad cooler and more power efficient). Also, looking at street prices, it would seem that a 7800nu would end up being more expensive than a 6800GT. Unless it blows a 6800GT to kingdom come, or is significantly less expensive, a 16-texel G7x may be a hard sell.

HOWEVER, a 16-texel (or even 12-texel), 8 ROP, *128-bit* card at the $200 price point could turn out to be pretty sweet. Don't know how hard it would hit the memory b/w wall, though.
