Sparkle produces the first 80 nanometre Nvidia card

MANY businesses in Europe will be closed from Monday till probably January the 3rd 2007. That hasn't stopped Sparkle from announcing its Calibre P768 card based on Geforce 7600 GT 80nm chip. I guess Nvidia had to do it in 2006 as it promised to its investors it was supposed to shift from 90 nanometre to 80 a while ago.
The new 80 nanometre parts will end up clocked at 650MHz - 90MHz faster than the previous 7600 GT clock. The chip behind it is G73 but we don’t know what Nvidia calls the new 80 nanometre ones. The memory on Sparkle card works at 1600MHz and Nvidia hasn't changed the chip memory support as it still works with 128 bit memory only. The card comes with 256MB memory and has twelve rendering pipelines. It supports PCIe 16X interface.

Nice. May get one of those as a late after-Christmas late gift.

Do you think they'll change the name? 7600 GTX, anyone? I wonder if their 80nm parts will be as good as overclockers as their 90nm ones?

haha i dont think ati or nvidia need anymore SKU's on the shelf,

although a top of the middle low end part sounds cool lol

they should clock a lot better than 90nm, seeing as the new reference clock is 90mhz higher

i bet with a vmod someone will hit 800mhz

i think buying one right now would be dumb though, the 80nm versions will probably sell for 150 which is 7900gs territory now

nvidia is supposedly releasing some low end 8000s within a few months, most likely 80nm probably late march or april

any unified shader card should kill everything in the 7000 series, my advice is to save your money and wait for these cards

Looks good for a mid entry GPU.

They should partner up with Intel and produce 65nm chips for their GFX cards.

I beleive its the 8600 that is the midrange DX10 cards.

Please can you fill in your system specs in the User CP at the top of this page.

I wonder how the 8600 will perform, considering the 7600GT performs as good as the last gen-high end..

*cheap 7800/7900 here I come *

Well the 8600 Im sure will be comparable with a High end DX9 card power wise.
