NVIDIA GeForce 7950GX2 Benchmarks 51

An anonymous reader writes "On June 6, NVIDIA will launch what it calls 'the fastest single graphics card' on the planet, capable of running 40% faster than the current GeForce 7900GTX. Dailytech has benchmarks and specifications of the card already." From the Dailytech article: "GeForce 7950GX2 takes two GeForce 7900GTX boards, and joins them via 32 PCIe lanes. 16 additional lanes are routed to the motherboard out to the PCIe adaptor. The GeForce 7900GX2 was designed specifically for OEM system builds and as a result nothing was compromised for performance. However, GeForce 7950GX2 is designed to be the retail component, and as such a few things needed tweaking for retail sales."

    7900GT: 500MHz core, 256MB @ ~600MHz memory. $280

    7950GX2: 500MHz core, 1024MB @ 600MHz memory $600

    7900GTX: 650MHz core, 512MB @ 800MHz memory $500

    It's not two 7900GTXs, it's a pair of 7900GTs with extra memory, coming out of the same quality of chip yield, not the one-in-however-many GPUs that can be stably clocked up to GTX levels.

    Plus, the lower clock means much lower cooling requirements and power consumption, with corresponding cost reduction.

    Not a bad idea, really.
