GeForce 7900 GTX: A Preview

"GeForce 7900 GTX: A Preview"

Search News

First off, Nvidia definitely plans to take back the title of world's fastest video card that ATI took away with the Radeon X1900, which tops out at 650MHz core clock speed. To do this they will be switching to a 90nm manufacturing process, compared to the GeForce 7800 GTX which was .11 micron, this inevitably ran into problems with the GeForce 7800 GTX 512, producing them in large volumes. The 90nm process should help greatly and they will need it as everything so far points to a 700-750MHz core clock speed for the GeForce 7900 GTX. You'll recall from our Asus Radeon X1800XT TOP review that ATI hit that clock speed with that card, but it wasn't produced in mass quantities. Hopefully, Nvidia will be able to produce this level at the supply needed.

Memory is also important and DigiTimes claims there will be 256MB and 512MB versions made, this will be the GeForce 7900 GTX and the GeForce 7900 GT with 256MB. Yes, the two cards will be launching at the same time and currently, while everyone has known it will be during CeBit, it looks like March 9th is the best bet, with a hard launch. The memory will feature a clockspeed of 800-900MHz of GDDR3 memory.

yeah ive used this plugin for quite a while, but before it was released, I always did the changes manually to firefox.

me and frag have both written guides on it, but all it does it optimises your bandwidth for broadband, and allows more concurrent connections.

all these settigns can be manually changed in about:config

But why bother Dave if you can get a tool to do it all for you :(

because i can change them to suit my connection sam, whereas fasterfox is still making assumptions on your bandwidth speed. hence, by doing it manually, mine is that tiny bit faster than fasterfox can make it.

It more than likely tweaks the settings how we have listed in the FF tweaks guide here at OC3D :)

Yeah, but I've been to lazy to re-do them since my last format :p, so this is a great plugin imo!

I don't want to steer this thread into a 'Try this firefox plugin' etc, but this plugin puts an 'X' on each of your tabs which I find very handy :) Tabfx

You don't really need an "X" on the tabs cause you can just middle click to close :)

I use tabbrowser preferences :)

Speaking of all this, I wonder if I can tweak the FF settings on Mac... I bet so... Muahahaha :)

Actually, I prefer Safari over FF and I don't use that much. Safari looks better, it's faster, and has the same support. Me <3 Safari.
