    I was going to comment on this tidbit this morning when I first saw the article posted, but was waiting to see if anyone else would speak up. I wouldn't call it plagarism, but I'd be curious if you could actually site the "clever users" where you got this information from. Perhaps your "clever users" were just the messenger for what the above site had done.

    I'd be very surprised if you guys didn't recieve this in your news mailbox, I did (both the originals and their plagarism cry).

    The GeForce 6150 is probably the onboard video for the 6100/6150 motherboards. Reply

    Exactly, the 6150 is definitely just the onboard for the upgraded 6100 video. Reply

    True, but 6250 and 6700 are new to me. Reply

    Nice find but there are tons of unknown/never seen graphics cards listed in the supported list here:


    I suppose the 7800GS (not on this list) is the most interesting to mainstream users, but there are also 6800 XE and XT variants which could be good if they ever materialise. Are you sure the 7800GS isn't OEM-only?

    This could be the 6800 Vanilla equivalent of the 7800 Series.

    7800 GS hmmmm....

    Considering that a "vanilla" 7800 would still be a significant amount of graphics power, I'd be interested in dropping :200bux: for one, especially if it came in AGP for my ancient rig.

    20 pipes with a core clock of 400MHz, 256MB RAM @ 1.0GHz

    How is that a speculation on the 7800GS? That's the same stock spec as a 7800GT.

    If anything I'd imagine 7800GS would be a 16-pipe 7-series GPU so that it remains competitive with 6800 chips, but allows for chips with 2 failed quads (i.e. 4 working/good ones) and/or vertex shaders.

    Is it? I thought the 7800GT was set up like the 7800GTX with a lower clock speed... My mistake.
    I don't think going to 16 pipes would be a good idea though, since they'd need to lower the price dramatically to cut into the 6800 sales and convert existing 6800 users--I know a couple of 6800GT owners who aren't planning to upgrade for at least another 18 months, so the 7800GS had better be one amazing package for a cheap price point to grab those types of customers.

    The X800GT was a way of clearing excess X800 (R420?) cores which had damaged quads (perhaps), so I imagine a high-clock 16-pipe 7-series GPU is a reasonable bet for something better than the 6-series but nicely priced and below the GT and GTX. I guess we'll see on that front. Reply

    Haha, nice find. Never woulda thought to look there! Reply
