Nvidia remixes NV44 as GeForce 7100 GS
A new contender has quietly joined the ranks of Nvidia's GeForce 7 graphics cards: the GeForce 7100 GS. This card is presented as a budget offering, but a report by HKEPC claims Nvidia has gone so far as to recycle the NV44 graphics core found in older GeForce 6200 TurboCache cards.
According to the report, the GeForce 7100 GS features the same NV44 core, 350MHz core clock speed, four pixel shader processors, and three vertex shader processors as the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, but with its onboard memory clocked at 333MHz instead of 350MHz. Like its big brother, the 7100 GS also uses TurboCache technology to allocate system memory via the PCI Express interface. HKEPC says Nvidia did nonetheless tweak the GeForce 7100 GS's drivers to add support for Intellisample 4.0 antialiasing, SLI multi-GPU configurations, and PureVideo HD acceleration for high-definition video—features absent from the GeForce 6200 TurboCache.
