Nvidia prepping yet another G71-based card?
The GeForce 7 graphics card lineup may soon gain yet another member
, according to a card manufacturer insider quoted by NGOHQ. The insider says Nvidia is prepping a GeForce 7950 GS that will have both slightly lower performance and a slightly lower price tag than the recently-launched GeForce 7950 GT
. NGOHQ says the card—if it is indeed in Nvidia's roadmap—may be either exclusive to PC vendors, much like the GeForce 7900 GS was before its retail launch, or an AGP-only model. However, the site also suggests the GeForce 7950 GS could be a counterattack to ATI's new Radeon X1900 XT 256MB, which offers performance close to that of the GeForce 7950 GT for $40-50 less.
