    Please use this thread for further discussion & pre-launch speculation.
    And even if it might be considered boring at this point, there's plenty
    to have fun thinking about!

    Supposed Facts, 7900GTX (512MB)
    - 24 Pixel Pipelines (6 quads), similar pipeline to the G70 (FP32;
    MAD/TEX + MAD - so same total of 48 ALUs).
    - 650Mhz Core Clock (Reference design, some AIBs will go higher)
    - 1.6Ghz Memory Clock (Reference design, unclear about AIBs)
    - 17800 3DMark03, 7600(?) 3DMark05, 5200 3DMark06
    - $499 to $549 MSRP, depending on AIBs (?)
    - 196mm² chip, only 31.5% bigger than a RV530.

    Supposed Facts, 7900GT (256MB)
    - 24 Pixel Pipelines (6 quads), similar pipeline to the G70 (FP32;
    MAD/TEX + MAD, so same total of 48 ALUs).
    - 450Mhz Core Clock (Reference design, some AIBs will go higher)
    - 1.25-1.3Ghz Memory Clock (Reference design, unclear about AIBs)
    - 13800 3DMark03, 7000(?) 3DMark05, 4550 3DMark06
    - $299 to $349 MSRP, depending on AIBs (?)
    - 196mm² chip, only 31.5% bigger than a RV530.

    Supposed Facts, 7600GT (G73)
    - 12 Pixel Pipelines (3 quads), similar pipeline to the G7x (FP32;
    MAD/TEX + MAD, so same total of 24 ALUs).
    - 560Mhz Core Clock, 128-bit (Reference design, some AIBs will go
    higher)
    - 1.26-1.4Ghz Memory Clock (Reference design, some AIBs will go higher)
    - Unknown 3DMark scores, but supposedly +80% against RV530 (XT? Pro?)
    in F.E.A.R.
    - Unknown MSRP at this point, probably at RV530 levels & above.
    - 125mm² chip, 18% smaller than RV530.

    Misc.
    - The launch will occur on the 9th of March 2006, with a supposedly
    hardlaunch.
    - "Miracle" Drivers for games such as F.E.A.R. with 20-30%
    Boosts.
    - There will be dual-boards configurations to allow for Quad SLI.
    Clocks lower than 650Mhz apparently, but no reliable leaked
    information.
    - Lower transistor count for a similar per-clock performance as the G70
    (=> denser and more efficient design). Supposedly highly overclockable.
    - Hardlaunch well planned, but avaibility is not guaranteed due to
    quantity constraints initially.
    - 3DMark06 ran at 4700 for a 7800GTX-512 with a similar system (5200
    for a 7900GTX)
    - Reasonable prices in (euro-based, at least) Europe at launch.
