NVIDIA's unveils its newest $50 entry level DX9 graphics card
NVIDIA today announced its latest entry-level graphics offering, the
GeForce 7200 GS
GeForce 7200 GS
delivers Vista Premium Ready graphics performance at a low $50 price point. NVIDIA touts full support for DirectX 9.0, shader model 3.0 and high dynamic-range with the entry-level GeForce 7200 GS.
“Windows Vista, which benefits greatly from additional 3D performance, is gaining market share and mainstream applications such as Microsoft Maps, Google Picasso and iTunes are also starting to take advantage of 3D graphics,” Ujesh Desai, general manager of desktop GPUs, said. “By making a small investment in graphics performance, customers buying Vista PCs can go from an underwhelming experience to one that delivers exceptional performance and features.”
NVIDIA has severely crippled the
graphics core compared to its GeForce 7300-series, which uses the same core. The GeForce 7200 GS makes do with half the pipelines as the
GeForce 7300 GS
. This brings the total pixel pipelines to two, each with one texture unit. NVIDIA claims the GeForce 7200 GS delivers graphics performance that is 50% faster than integrated graphics solution. Strangely, AMD’s
690G integrated graphics chipset
features four pixel pipelines, each with one texture unit.
PureVideo video processing is also supported; however, NVIDIA is unclear if the GeForce 7200 GS supports
for high-definition video decoding acceleration.
Add-in board manufacturers are free to equip
GeForce 7200 GS
graphics cards with 128MB or 256MB of DDR2 memory. NVIDIA recommends 800 MHz for GeForce 7200 GS graphics cards. The DDR2-800 memory attaches to the GPU via a 64-bit memory interface. NVIDIA clocks the GeForce 7200 GS GPU at 450 MHz.
GeForce 7200 GS based graphics cards will be available to OEMs, system builders and retail. NVIDIA add-in board partners with GeForce 7200 GS products include Albatron, ASUS, Biostar, ECS, EVGA, Foxconn, Galazy, Gigabyte, Innovision, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY Technology, SPARKLE, XFX, Zogis and Zotac.
