GeForce 7950 GS?
Published on September 26th, 2006

We have just received a word from a video card manufacturer. Speaking off the record, the source claims that Nvidia is working on a GeForce 7950 GS. The details are still blurry at this moment due to the premature revelation. As you probably figured from the name, the 7950 GS will be a bit slower then 7950 GT, and it will be cheaper in order to counter ATI's upcoming X1950 PRO.

Anyway, since the GeForce 7900 family is getting crowded due to the latest releases of the 7900 GS and the GeForce 7950 GT, as well as the upcoming 7900 GTO. We believe that there are only two likely possibilities: AGP version or OEM only.

Nvidia offered the 7900 GS as OEM only until recently when they launched it as a retail card, as well. They might offer the 7950 GS as OEM only at first, but my better assumption is that Nvidia will make it as another AGP version like the GeForce 7800 GS. This is more likely due to the vast amount of solutions already available in PCI Express.

Nvidia already introduced mid-range AGP solutions - the 7600 GS and the upcoming 7300 GT. It's more likely that they will try to offer a better solution than the 7800 GS - especially now when there are some rumors circulating about possible AGP cards from ATI.

At this moment we are trying to obtain some more information about the 7950 GS. We will update you when we have some more solid information. Since this information has not been confirmed, consider it as a rumor and expect some details to change.
