Behind the graphics - nVidia 7800
Subject: Graphics Cards | November 15, 2005 - 12:32 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
You've probably read at least a half dozen reviews of the 7800 by now, but not too many touched on why it was made now, and what thought processes went into designing it. PenStar Systems comes to the rescue of those curious souls, who wish a closer look at what goes into designing and produing a top end graphics card.
"So how did the 512 MB 7800 GTX come into existence? The story is quite interesting, and I can
hopefully take readers behind the scenes and explain the series of events that transpired to make
this idea into reality. Some of this is confirmed, and some of this was gathered in rumors about
the industry. The story is not simply 'let's make this faster' but rather 'how can we one-up our
competition without going totally insane?'"
