    is it possible to underclock the graphics card while not plugged into the wall to improve battery life? Reply

    Battery Life = 5 minutes :). Reply

    Actually, untethered my 6800 Ultra gives about two hours. If I dial things down I can get nearly four hours.

    The 7800GTX is actually far more efficient powerwise, so it would stand to reason that it'd give better battery life than the 6800 part, as well as run cooler.

    Check out http://www.nvidia.com/page/go_7800gtx_tech_briefs....">http://www.nvidia.com/page/go_7800gtx_tech_briefs.... and click on the Tech Brief: PowerMizer 6.0 pdf and read page 5.
    Looks like nvidia forgot to mention this little tidbit to everybody, let alone make a big deal about it. So much for ati having the first 0.09 micron part out, nvidia is already shipping theirs quietly.

    It's not 90nm, it's just 110nm. This has been confirmed with nVidia by another source. If nV were as 90nm they'd likely be PRing this up and down (as would any other company), and it turns out the reason they're not is because they're not. :) But we'll probably see 90nm GPUs in the GF7 family (beyond RSX).

    Put in a 2.26 P-M and you'll probably get in the vicinity of 7k or more on 3DM05. We should see some testing mighty soon, so if I'm totally off base apologies ahead of time.

    There is going to be a line forming to get these machines, so if you want one and don't want to wait till Feb to get one, best not tarry too long in signing up. The number of people in forums who were waiting specifically for this new GPU was large.

    If however you don't mind waiting I'm sure it will slow slightly after the Dec holidays..

    Don't count on this being available in any other laptop other than the Dell XPS. Dell always does this with their mobility XPS platforms.

    When they had the 9800 Mobility and the last generation 6800 Ultra, even though it was never mentioned in all the pre-hype from ATI and Nvidia, they only ended up in the Dell XPS laptops.

    Wow, $3100 buckazoids to get in the door on this baby. Now if we can just get one of those 40% coupon specials from Dell, I'll be there. That'll drop it down to a more realistic $1800.

    Any news about if this chip has Dual-Link DVI? And no, that is not Dual-DVI, it's Dual-Link, to power a Apple 30" LCD. The desktop 7800GTX models have it. Reply

    Wasn't there a nVidia PP presentation floating around that stated the Go 7800 would be at around 5500 or 6000 3DMark05? That seemed awefully low for a 24-pipe part. Reply

    3DMark05 is heavily CPU limited, thus you will get much lower scores with 2.13GHz Dothan (Since Go 7800 is a mobile part, nVidia's 3DMakr05 score was naturally run on a laptop). Reply

    Is this part cut down from the desktop 7800 GTX in any way (pipes, etc.)? Reply
