2006-4-21 19:00 frontline display card Banan Taiwan received the news, nVidia is ready to launch a new portal product level models for the Geforce 7300GT, although chips and Geforce 7600 family of products identical, However, the core code-named G73-V Geforce 7300GT, the Pixel Shader pipeline was only 8 to the screen moves, and the number of engines and four Vertex Shader support 128Bit memory controller, designed for PCB P501, the core business of 350MHz, ROM will be 16 x 16 or -2.5ns -2.8ns particle total 256MB DDR2 capacity memory default, connections to 667MHz, it was revealed tentative at 89-109 U.S. dollar.

As the 7300GS and 7300LE used only 4 G72 core and memory controller only Pixel Shader pipeline 64Bit, G73-V core nVidia Geforce 7300GT will be able to replace the product line level vacancies Geforce 6600LE and 6200 to replace the original position. NVidia has received major manufacturers to provide the public version of the sample, but I believe there is still a certain distance from export time, but now look at the Geforce 7300GT specifications that will rival for the Radeon ATi Radeon X1300Pro X1600Pro and reached great pressure.

Translation is abit weird but i guess its good news for some mostly who are looking for cards that cost around 80~100. Nice replacement for the 6600 based cards.

Code:G73
Model Name:7300GT
Core CLock:350mhz
Memory:667mhz GDDR2
Pixel Pipeline:8
Vertext Shader:4
ROPs:3~4 (guessing)
Bus: 128bit
vRAM:256mb
MSRP:$99?

looks nice. think it might be better if the bus were increased to 256 and the vram reduced to 128, though....

That would be too expensive to make. The GPU die would have to be bigger. I dont think implementing 256bit to such a low end card is a good idea. But the card itself looks like it got more bandwidth than the 6600GT. (1320mhz effective i think)

it's 128 bit.

and i'm guessing that 667 DDR, meaning 333 actual MHz. also, it costs even less because otherwise nvidia would have to throw away G73 cores that have a busted quad.

667mhz GDDR2. Not sure if its thats the ffective speed, but its using 2.5~2.8ns ram.

The 7600 GS targets the X1600 Pro,

This 7300 GT is supposed to target the X1300 Pro which Nvidia doens't have a competitor to at the moment.

No, 667MHZ GDDR2 is the effective speed, it can't have more then the 7600 GS itself, which is 800MHZ GDDR2 effective right now on reference designs. There is no GDDR2 to my knowledge that has greater then 1.1GHZ effective speed.

The low end stuff has never made much sense to me when for less than $50 more you can go midrange in the same generation or top end in the last generation.

I suspect this is where they make their biggest profits, however, selling to Walmartians and the like.

After shaders, memory bandwidth is the next biggest bottleneck, so that 128 bit bus is really going to put a lid on any other potential.

2.5ns = 400 (actual) mhz ram
2.8ns = 357 mhz

Somewhere around the level of the Geforce 6600 Vanilla and the Geforce 6600 DDR2.

Good Point as the X1300Pro is 100 bucks this is probally going to be too..

And i don't see nvidia making this card faster then the 7600GS

ahh maybe the 7600GS is too big and can't be made at half-height PCI standards and thsi can... I am not sure did not go looking around just a guess

Seems pointless for retail, but is probably targeted at being inserted by Dell into their el cheapo boxes.

Right now the default video is the X300 or equivalent. I'm sure NV wants a dirt cheap card to replace that with, cutting off ATI's last remaining profitable segment -- the ultra low end.
