| GeForce 7800GS is a fact, not a rumor.

Some of you may doubt our sources, so to clear it up and to prove the
reliability of our sources; we decided to post more details about this
subject. NVIDIA stores a lot of information inside their drivers. Some
of it can be found in their Setup information file (nv4_disp.inf). But
some of their product's information is also stored inside the
Control Panel file (nvcpl.dll).
To view this information you will need a disassembler. For this task you can download an evaluation copy of PE Explorer. After you have installed PE Explorer, you will need Forceware 81.85 Beta.
After you have downloaded them please extract them to a new directory.
Once you have extracted the files you have to expand the file
nvcpl.dl_. To expand it you have to type “expand nvcpl.dl_
-r” from the Command Prompt in the folder that you have extracted
the files to.
Launch PE Explorer and open the file “nvcpl.dll”. Click on
the “Tools” tab and pick “Disassembler” and
then “Start Now”. It will take few seconds but when
it's done press on CTRL+F and type inside “7800_GS”
and then Enter. You should now see the GeForce 7800GS entry, if you
will scroll up or down you will notice that entire NVIDIA's
product line is being listed there.
You may also find G73 there as well. To remind you that NVIDIA's
is not adding support for imaginary products. If it's listed
there then you should expect to see it some time in the future. Talking
about drivers, I would recommend that you to check out our latest
modified Forceware drivers. The NGO NVIDIA Optimized Driver
is a tweaked version of the NVIDIA Forceware drivers. The main purpose
is to satisfy the users with better performance and image quality. It
seems that my work here is done, Back to Quake 4 now.
