Default Budget GeForce 7 GPU's Released!

Nvidia just announced the release of the GeForce 7300 GS.

The 7300 is a new budget part meant to compete with ATI's X1300. The 7300 GS features 4 pixel pipes, 3 vertex pipes and features a 400 MHz DDR2 memory clock. There is no SLI support, and the 7300 GS's MSRP is $99.

Nvidia press release:

Took me 5 minutes to find where this thread was after being redirected from Flanker's.

After all that, here's my comment.

What a piece of crap.

it's ironic because it's substantially worse than the 6XXX series cards.

Well whats the point of that? Are they just trying to get people that know nothing to buy it because it's a higher number or something.

WOOHOO!!!

I like these cheap end cards for what they are, and hope it does well in benchtests.

The 6600gt is 130, so hopefully it will be a nice chunk better than a 6600.

Yes, most probably. Like the thing they did where ATI use a GT extension on a card, or nVidia use XL, and people think they are better when they are in fact worse. Regular consumers will happily pay more.
