    Default this is really quite impressive.

    http://www.ebuyer.co.uk/UK/cat/Graph...Force-7-Series

    on this link, you find the gainward 7800gs with 20 pipelines, which is cool because the standard gs's have only 16 pipes, which keeps it in the same stable with the 6800gs/gt 's. this looks to me like the fastest agp card in the world, unless ive missed something..........

    In the UK there is a 7800 GS + AGP card available with the 7900 GT GPU and 24 Pipes AND 512MB memory. It is the third one down. That is one super nasty AGP card.

    these new cards must make people feel mean and nasty when they bought a standard gs. WHY? Why do the companies have to mess people around? if they can do a full 7800gt agp, why not call it one? btw, 24 pipes means its a gtx core, i think.

    You are too right. IT is utter bull**** when they release a new and improved product every other week and give no real notice it is coming. Especially graphics cards. Also, that card is a 7900GT in disguise, not a GTX. It is using the 7900GT core.

    hmm,
    was thinking back to few months ago after my buddy was smashing 3dmark05 scores with his bfg 7800gtx then all of the sudden for $350 the 7900gt came out with a shrunken die size equalling lesser watts= lesser heat=faster clock speeds on gpu core and ram speeds vs the larger 7800gtx and it beat it across the board in fps in games and 3dmarks,lol he was pisssed.now listen to this crap,he wants to sli his rig but the 7800gtx is still $500 when the 7900gt 24 pipe card is only $280 some places,lol hes like wow for another $200 i can get 2 new 7900gt,s in sli vs paying another $500 for another 7800gtx to match his.now i think about these things a lil past the marketing ploys as far as not knowing for a fact but im thinking the 7800gtx,s had more money in there oringal 130mm dies,then the time it took to shrink down a die to 90mm lessening the heat and already selling itself on the 24 pipes,faster memory,and faster for core for $300.lol?.the 7800gtx guys were wait a sec here,its faster and cheaper?
