Have we been given any information on the forth coming of these cards, and whether or not they'll exsist at all?

I doubt we'll hear anything from nvidia before ATI's launch.... at least.

As I've said before: I really don't think there is any reason to put these cards out.

A 7600 would be roughly equivalent to a 6800U or GT.

A 7200 would be like a 6600GT.


Apart from the new AA modes, there would absolutely no reason to upgrade your card to one of those.

What about a vanilla 7800? And do you think that they'll release a new line along with the vista launch that includes Dx10?

I am hoping for a 7600 Go that'll perform like the current 6800 go's, but with the same power usage as the 6600's. Of course, if nvidia released an entire midrange and lowrange, with immediate availability at the same time Ati "releases" (ie paper launch) their entire range, then it would seem that nvidia has this generation in the bag. Of course, that is just idle fantasy.

I think by the time Vista comes out, we'll be at 9800 at least, if not 10800. And by that time, they'll need a new naming scheme because it's too much like ATi's.

And yeah, the only way I could see a 7600 coming out would be in the Go line. And man, those would r0x0rz

Wow, okay your right, I had the Vista launch date completely confused. Disregard what I just said.

Nvidia will launch 7800 Standard, third line of 7800 series (vanilla) a few days after ATI launch on 5 Oct.

NVIDIA plans to introduce GeForce 7800 Standard using the G70 core which makes it the third line-up for the 7800 series. It will have 16 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex shader. The core clock is at 375MHz and the memory is at 1Ghz. GeForce 7800 will be replacing GeForce 6800GT and Ultra but NVIDIA is not in the hurry to launch 7800 Standard but will wait for ATi R520 to be launched first.

So why don't you SLi those in notebook too, you computer sl UT. Ok ok, sorry, I didn't mean that, just really want that X-Fi lol.

Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised seeing some rebadged cards with TRSS and such just so they look new to the average consumer.

I want a 7200 to replace my 6200.

Get a 6800NU. I guarantee it would cost less and perform pretty much the same. There would be no point for them to put out a 7x00 series card that performs worse than the previous gen.

Considering that a 7800GTX is often as fast or faster than SLIed 6800 Ultras, the 7200 should be at least as fast as a 6800NU, if not faster.

No, it would probably perform worse and cost a lot less. The 6200 is less than $100 and in the case of the TC its $60. Plus you would get Transparency AA and vastly improved HDR performance.

So I guess nvidia is going to pit the 6800 GT (NV48 .11) against the X1600XT.

Hypothetically, if they were to make 7600/7200 series cards, would they cost about the same as the 6600/6200 did around launch time? ($100-$150). If so then they definately need to go that route. =P

Okay then, new question, would a 64 3000+ Venice (@2.0ghz), 1GB OCZ Gold 2-2-2-5 bottleneck a 7800 vanilla should one come out, or do you think I'd be alright?

personally i think you'll be fine ;) bit of a bottleneck, but nothing to drastic.

Both companies have been flooding the market with pointless cards for years. Each gen having 9 to 12 itterations is absurd. Why did they release the 6200 when a 5600 would do the same? Then throw in all the letter extensions to things and it becomes a pointless mess. Seems to sell though, otherwise they wouldn't do it.
