Nvidia launches its first 65 nm part


7200 GS is the name

We've already told you that the new G78 chip is coming, a new part based on a shrunken G72 marchitecture and you can read about it here.

This is only a DirectX 9 part, but it will be passively cooled and many OEM's will want to get a piece of that action. The card is also available as a low profile card and has VGA and DVI out. The best part of it is that it will give the 7100 GS and X1050 parts a run for their money, as it should score better and it measure just 60 square millimetre.

This is Nvidia's first 65 nanometre part and they introduced it before ATI managed to get its RV630 and 610 out of the TSMC fab in real quantities.

Nvidia markets this card as a great solution for Vista and it is a low cost upgrade solution that will beat all integrated graphics solutions currently available. Graphzilla also claims that it will sell for $50, while we found out that in Euroland the cheapest one will cost about €30 to €35.

You can pre order one here and we are sure that the OEM's will have them in their systems any day now.
