Next Monday, NVIDIA will release a new GPU, the GeForce 7300 GT. Unlike the 7300 GS that is based on a G72, the 7300 GT would be based on a G73, like the 7600 GS/GT. Frequencies will however be reduced at 350/333 and the number of PS pipeline from 12 to 8. Here are the product characteristics:
Even if the price position of the 7300 GT is good compared to other cards at $100, its characteristics aren’t revolutionary and 3D performances won’t probably be high enough to play in 1280*1024. Also, if the 7600GS and 7300GS aren’t equivalent according to NVIDIA for PureVideo, it won’t be the case of the 7300 GT.
The 7300 GT will increase the quality of this product line but it won’t revolutionize it. If you want to save money it is still best to choose a 7300 GS (or lower), and if you want to play games, it is best to spend a little bit more and buy at least a 7600 GS.
