Now it's time for another round of new stuff, and the competition is tighter than ever. Today, NVIDIA is unveiling two GPUs powering three different flavors of video cards. Say hello to the GeForce 7600 and 7900 series, new mid-range and high-end graphics cards ranging from $199 to, well, very expensive. These introductions mark NVIDIA's transition in earnest to 90nm fab process technology, a place where ATI has been for a number of months.
Speaking of ATI, the folks there couldn't stand by and watch new GeForces arrive without doing something, so they've decided to unveil a new $249 Radeon card and rework their product lineup to include a range of more affordable options. We've tested the Radeon X1800 GTO alongside the new NVIDIAs.
Oh, yes. And we have the juicy details on the King Kong of PC graphics, quad SLI, where not one, not two, but four GeForce 7900 GPUs can pull together to squash all competition and raid your Swiss bank account.
