NVIDIA has another hard launch under their belts with the release of the GeForce 7300 GS. The 7300 GS is the first 90 nanometer GPU from NVIDIA. The new part has all of the core functionality of its more expensive 7800 GTX and 7800 GT counterparts including Shader Model 3.0 and support for PureVideo. Considering that this is NVIDIA's lower-end part, some consessions had to be made. The 7300 GS only features 4 pixel pipelines and 3 vertex shaders. SLI support is also not a part of the equation for launch, but it may very well show up in future iterations of the GPU.
Here are the specs for NVIDIA's reference design:
Engine clock: 550MHz
Memory clock: 700MHz
Memory interface: 64-bit
Memory size: 128MB/256MB, 256MB/512MB (Physical/TurboCache-enabled)
GeForce 7300 GS based graphics cards are shipping now in the Asia-Pacific region. The United States will see availability in early Februrary with an estimated street price of around $99.
