NVIDIA 7900GX2 - First Photos, Clock Rates, Price

This month brought news that Foxconn would produce graphics cards, and the first samples were even showcased at CeBIT. But now HKEPC.com publishes the first photos of GeForce 7900GX2 cards from this company.

Besides, they also got to know the exact clock rates of such solutions, each of which combines two GeForce 7900GTX via a single-slot adapter. Therefore a SLI machine can have four GeForce 7900GTX GPUs.

So, 7900GX2 core clock is 500MHz, DDR3 clock is 1.2GHz. FYI, the reference GeForce 7900GTX has 650/1500 MHz clock rates.

The GeForce 7900GX2 adapter utilizes 48 PCIe lanes, of which 16 are used to interact with motherboard's PCIe interface, and other 32 lanes are dedicated to 7900GX2 GPUs interaction.

Foxconn's novelties support 32x FSAA and require a 650W PSU for a Quad SLI configuration. A single GeForce 7900GX2 card is expected to cost over $1,000 in retail. Source: HKEPC.com
