Thumbs up Re: 7800 GS AGP coming in Feb

If this is true it's great new for AGP guys.
350 core sounds about right for an AGP card. I bet it will OC like mad though.

My mobo has both slots so my next upgrade will be PCI-E and my mobo
will also run AMD's Next Gen cpu.

Sounds correct. The PCI-E GS will be clocked higher like
they did with the 6800GS cards.

I am waiting to see if it is worth upgrading from my current 6800 Ultra or not. I wouldn't mind a decent boost until I put my new PC together towards the end of 2006.

Angry Re: 7800 GS AGP coming in Feb

Do you think it will seriously outperform my new 6800 GT OC AGP running at 370 MHz? Cuz I just bought the thing LAST WEEK thinking Nvidia will never release a 7 series AGP card!!!!

I'd like to know who is making these decisions at Nvidia, because there is a huge market that they could have tapped if they released the 7800 AGP alot earlier, now that its months after the chips initial release alot of people have upgraded.

Who in their right mind is gonna buy my intel cpu? Have you thought about that!
I'll stretch my system as far as i can, then sell it for peanuts and do a fresh upgrade.
