Inno3D GeForce 7300GT Review
Inno3D GeForce 7300GT Review Published on May 31th, 2006



Introduction
Not everyone can afford a high end graphics card, since most gamers are young fellows who can't spend hundreds of dollars on a top-of-the-line model. Unfortunately, there are not many options to choose from when considering a low budget card. On top of that, the majority of these cards will not allow you to play games with medium-high resolutions, Anisotropic Filtering, and Anti-Aliasing enabled. NVIDIA already released the GeForce 7300 GS, but it has suffered from rough competition going up against ATi's low budget offerings. The Radeon X1300 Pro really gave it a run for its money, with it suffering from lack of performance in comparison.

Now it seems that NVIDIA is trying to correct this situation. Back on the 15th of May, NVIDIA shipped 7300GT GPUs to the Asian Pacific region only. However, this time they managed to surprise us. The 7300GT is not based on G72 architecture like its brother, the 7300GS. The 7300GT is based on G73, like the 7600 series, but with eight pipelines. A Few weeks later, many manufacturers launched their products and showed some amazing reference benchmarks of the 7300GT. These made us sit up and take notice. Like other G73/G72/G71 members, it is based on the 90 nanometer process. The original 7300GT design also included DDR2 memory, with the core clocked at 350MHz. However, a few manufacturers replaced it with GDDR3 memory, boosting the core clock speed as well.

Inno3D was kind enough to provide us with a sample of their superior version of the 7300GT. Inno3D has been NVIDIA's partner for many years, and are well known for their reasonable prices. They have few versions of the 7300GT, one with DDR2 and the other with GDDR3, with both versions running a 128 bit memory interface. We were fortunate enough to get the GDDR3 version. They have increased the core clock-speed to 500MHz (from 400MHz), with the memory running at 700MHz (1400MHz effective) in this version. Today we have the privilege of reviewing their GeForce 7300GT GDDR3 256MB edition.
