Thanks ArtOf_War for this submission in Back Page News section of our forums.
VR-Zone has learned that the upcoming GeForce 7800 GT will be 20 pipes instead of 24 pipes as intially reported. The vertex shader could probably stay at 8 and ROP at 16. The core clock for 7800GT is 400MHz instead of 335MHz initially thought. It will be interesting to see if the 4 hidden pipes can unlocked on the 7800 GT to become GTX. The 7800GT is slated for launch on 11th Aug at Quakecon 2005 and MRSP for this card is US$449. Also NVIDIA won't release their 7800 Standard yet until their 6800 inventory are cleared.
