Nvidia will launch its next GeForce 7 series part next month, tied in to the Quakecon 2005 gaming festival.

So claims an unnamed Nvidia Nsider quoted by CoolTechZone. Quakecon commences 11 August at the Gaylord Texan Resort, Grapevine, Texas and is co-sponsored by Nvidia.

The mole reveals the part, the GeForce 7800 GT, will ship on boards priced at around $450, around $150 less than GeForce 7800 GTX-based cards.

The 7800 GT is expected to be clocked at around 335MHz with the memory running at an effective 1.1GHz, but board vendors are free to tweak these numbers of course. The part is said to contain 24 pixel pipelines and eight vertex engines, as per the 7800GTX.

The 7800 GTX was codenamed G70 - originally NV47. A G72 part was recently spotted inside the leaked Forceware 80.40 drivers. It's possible the G72 and the 7800 GT are one, but we've seen other suggestions that the G72 is a mainstream part, while the mid-range product that could be the 7800 GT is the G71.

The driver also mentions the G70GL and the NV48 - which may also be a contender for the 7800 GT. ®
