Nvidia Mid-Range Sept 2006

ATI's recent update to its Radeon graphics cards primarily targeted the extremes of budget and high-performance video, but left the mid-range largely untouched as it remained an area where ATI was secure. That stability is being challenged today by Nvidia's introduction of two new video cards targeted at dominance of the highly coveted $200-300 price range. Leading the announcements is the pictured GeForce 7950 GT, which doubles the onboard memory of the 7900 GT to 512MB and increases the core speed dramatically to 550MHz. It offers claimed performance similar to the 7900 GTX at a much lower $299 price. Also released is the 256MB GeForce 7900 GS, which offers speeds slightly lower than the outgoing 7900 GT but at a still-lower $199 price. Both new cards feature quieter cooling systems and are immediately available through major computer hardware resellers from manufacturers such as Asus and eVGA.
