GeForce 7950 GX2

HKEPC has snagged a picture of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 7950 GX2 retail Quad SLI graphics card. They also posted some more detailed specifications. The 7950 GX2 is apparently 8.6" long, compared to the OEM-only 7900 GX2's gargantuan 13.2" length. Considering that NVIDIA's current top-of-the-line GeForce 7900 GTX is exactly 9" long, the 7950 GX2 is actually a little shorter in comparison. HKEPC also says the card features 512MB of GDDR3 RAM per GPU, and has respective core and memory clock speeds of 500MHz and 1.2GHz. The package is said to add up to 143W of power draw per dual-PCB card, meaning a hefty 286W for a proper Quad SLI system.

  1. Thanks that is so cool. :D Now if nvidia would only sell stand alone quad-sli cards that would be great. :lol:

    Are you certain it is 7950GX2? I'm almost positive it is 7900GX2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_7_Series (not that wikipedia in and of itself is accurate, but the best "english" link I can find)
  3. Hmm. Possibly a new midranged card. Unless somehow Nvidia has found a way to deal with the heat of their GPU's on a single slot solution.
    If the card is meant to be the successor of the 7900GTX, then I'm not sure how many architectural changes have been made (if any) besides a clock speed increase, which in turn would yield the need for better cooling.

    7900GT - single slot
    7900GTX - dual slot

    Of course my post has no bearing on technical specs, as I seem to be no future prediction expert. However I dont think that GPU in the picture will
    be Nv's new flagship card.
