Another manufacturer produces NVIDIA based graphics cards
Foxconn today announced it will be venturing into the graphics card market with a complete lineup of graphics cards
. NVIDIA has been selected as Foxconn’s graphics processor manufacturer. The Foxconn lineup consists only of NVIDIA GeForce 7 series graphics processors with enthusiast, performance, mainstream and value target segments.
previously reported Foxconn was expected to enter the graphics business with NVIDIA and ATI based graphics cards
after the company
ceased to be an OEM provider of Leadtek cards
At the top of the product lineup is Foxconn’s enthusiast offerings which are based on NVIDIA’s GeForce 7950GX2, 7950GT and 7900GTX. Foxconn’s FV-N795M4D2-OD is based on the GeForce 7950GX2 with 2x512MB of GDDR3. The FV-N79GM3D2-HP features the recently announced GeForce 7950GT while the FV-N79XM3D2-OD is based on the GeForce 7900GTX. Both GeForce 7950GT and 7900GTX cards feature 512MB of GDDR3 video memory. A GeForce 7950GT based graphics card with 256MB is also available in the form of the FV-N79GM2D2-HP.
On the performance side of things are two graphics cards based on NVIDIA’s previously released GeForce 7900GS and the older 7600GT graphics cores. The FV-N79SM2D2 features the GeForce 7900GS while the FV-N76TM2D2 features the 7600GT. Both performance graphics cards are equipped with 256MB of GDDR3 memory, though the 7600GT obviously doesn’t perform as well.
Foxconn’s mainstream offerings consist of NVIDIA GeForce 7600GS and 7300GT based graphics cards. Two cards based on the GeForce 7600GS are available—the FV-N76SM3DT and the FV-N76SM2DT. Both cards differ in memory size with the FV-N76SM3DT having 512MB while the FV-N76SM2DT has 256MB. Both cards feature GDDR2 memory with a 128-bit memory interface.
GeForce 7300GT solutions are available for the more value conscious mainstream user. Foxconn has two GeForce 7300GT based solutions—the FV-N73TM3DT and FV-N73TM2DT. Like the GeForce 7600GS based solutions, the two 7300GT based cards only differ in memory size, with the FV-N73TM3DT having 512MB while the lesser FV-N73TM2DT only has 256MB. Both GeForce 7300GT based graphics cards have GDDR2 memory with a 128-bit memory interface.
NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE and 7100GS based solutions fill up Foxconn’s value lineup which includes the FV-N73EM2DT, FV-N73EM1DT, FV-N71SM2DT and FV-N72SM1DT. All Foxconn value products are equipped with GDDR2 memory and a 64-bit memory interface. Memory sizes vary between 256MB or 128MB depending on the model.
All Foxconn enthusiast, performance and mainstream products are equipped with SLI bridge connectors while the value models aren’t. Value models will still work in SLI, although it will be software based SLI.
Foxconn branded graphics products are available immediately from distribution channels. Pricing varies depending on the model, though it should be similar to other NVIDIA based graphics cards. Since Foxconn used to make Leadtek cards, we can probably gander that the new Foxconn offerings would be at least as good as the older Winfast/Leadtek offerings.
