Nvidia will today announce an AGP version of its GeForce 7800 chip featuring 16 pixel-processing pipelines fed by six vertex shaders and clocked to 375MHz. It supports up to 256MB of DDR SDRAM clocked to 600MHz (1.2GHz effective).

So claims DailyTech, which notes the GeForce 7800 GS is fabbed at 110nm. It also has a selection of benchmark results comparing a new GeForce 7800 GS AGP-based board to Nvidia's GeForce 6800 GT. It delivered a performance boost to 12.1-19.8 per cent in the tests.

The product announcement was signalled late last month by the head of Nvidia's Taiwanese sales team. He said a full range of GeForce 7 series GPUs would be available worldwide by February 1, implying new releases.

The GeForce 7800 GS AGP is said to go on sale this coming Sunday in US high street stores, and from online retailers the following day. Pricing has yet to be disclosed.

Earlier this week, the company launched a broadcast-oriented version of its Quadro FX 4500 GPU and card. ®
