The GeForce 7900 GS has been lurking in pre-built PC systems for a few months now, but graphics industry sources have told HKEPC the card will make it to the retail market later this month. Much like the GeForce 7600 GS is a cut-down GeForce 7600 GT, the GeForce 7900 GS appears to be a cut down GeForce 7900 GT. It reportedly runs at 450MHz with 20 pixel shader processors, seven vertex shader processors, and 256MB of memory clocked at 660MHz. In short, the card runs at the same speeds as the GeForce 7900 GT, but it shaves off four pixel shaders and one vertex shader.
Pricing on the GeForce 7900 GS will supposedly reach almost a hundred bucks below the GeForce 7900 GT to the $179-199 range, which could make the GS a very appealing mainstream card. NVIDIA reportedly plans to cut the GeForce 7600 GT to $130 to accommodate the new retail introduction, too. HKEPC reckons these moves are a pre-emptive strike against ATI's rumored Radeon X1650 XT.
