Brent Kupras writes "NVIDIA just launched a whole bunch of GeForce Go 7xxx graphics cards for notebooks. There is a Go 7900 GTX, a Go 7900 GS, a Go 7600 and a Go 7300. The GTX version looks like just a faster copy of the old Go 7800 GTX. There are also a few benchmark results of these new chips against the older NVIDIA chips and ATI's chips."

    Low-end mobile NVIDIA GPUs from two generations ago (GeForceFX Go5100) will support Aero Glass.

    • Aero scales the experience based upon the power of your graphics chipset
    • If users get shitty performance, such that many of the "support" chips you listed provide, they will disable it post haste. That hardly qualifies as being powerful enough.


    So no, I really wasn't joking. Based upon some metrics I've gotten, and a demo I was given, I stand by my original statement.

    ok, I'm confused. The linked article shows the Go 7800GTX beating the Mobility Radeon x1800.

    This article [hexus.net] shows the mobile x1800 with a slight lead. What gives? What's different between 3dMark05 and 3dMark06, and what does it mean in for real games? They're all pretty nice cards and would be great for a gaming laptop... now if only I could find one with a core duo and a 15" screen instead of all those 17" monsters.

    Anyone have any more benchmarks or knowledge to contribute?

    Bandwidth. It sounds like you just want to offload 3D acceleration to an external device, in which case you need high bandwidth to the external card and then higher bandwidth back from the card to the internal display.

    I don't know if USB has enough bandwidth for the input stream, but for output you'd probably need something like a DVI input on the laptop (which would be kinda cool anyway, but take extra space).

Genius is ten percent inspiration and fifty percent capital gains.

Working...
