Seems that core NVIDIA partners are set to inject a healthy dose of Â‘customer centricÂ’ love into those of us still running AGP mainboards with the introduction of an AGP 8x variant of its GeForce 7800GS.
The AGP variant of the NVIDIA GeForce 7800GS seems set to feature a core GPU frequency of 350MHz, a frequency dictated by the fact that itÂ’s, unsurprisingly, a PCIe to AGP bridged design.
However, despite this the forthcoming NVIDIA GeForce 7800GS AGP is believed to bring more grunt to your gaming than last years GeForce 6800 Ultra AGP, and we think NVIDIA and its partners should be commended for giving its customers the choice of another upgrade path, which is very likely giving a large part of the market just what it wants.
Expect the adrenalin to start with premier NVIDIA partners - eVGA and XFX Graphics on the 2nd February 2006.
