Nvidia fills out GeForce 7 line-up

New 7300, 7600 models

Top three mobile application threats

Nvidia yesterday launched the latest additions to its GeForce 7 series of GPUs, padding out the graphics chip family at the low end and mid-range with two new models, as forecast.

The GeForce 7600 GS - aka G73 - joins the already-available 7600 GT. It's a 90nm part with a 128-bit memory bus connecting to DDR 2 or GDDR 3 SDRAM - extensible with TurboCache technology.

The new 7300 LE supports TurboCache too. The 7300 LE has a single-channel, 64-bit memory bus out to DDR 2/GDDR 3 memory. It too is fabbed at 90nm.

The 7600 GS supports SLI, the 7300 LE doesn't. Both chips support DirectX 9's Shader Model 3.0.

Nvidia didn't specify pricing, beyond noting the new chips fall in the $129-149 range. It said the new GeForce 7 Series GPUs are available now on boards from Albatron, AOpen, Asus, BFG, Biostar, Chaintech, Club 3D, ELSA, Gainward, Gigabyte, Innovision, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, PNY, Sigmacom, Sparkle XFX and others. ®
