Nvidia video cards



I’ve been looking at a new video card lately (X-Plane…) And am certain that many people are confused by Nvidia’s product lines of late… Here’s a nutshell idea…. They’re currently using 4 digit product numbers – like 7300, 7800, 8300, etc…. I found this breakdown in zdnets talkback…


how the breakdown works out (just an example as same applies to ati):
home or business card:
nvidia 7100 / 7300 – display to screen only

home gaming or business designing:
nvidia 7600 – play dvds and light games at low resolution (diablo2 / couterstrike)

gamers:
nvidia 7800 / 7900 / 7950 (single) – play dvds and medium games at medium to full resolution (nfsu2 / bf vietnam)

gamers with money:
nvidia 7800 / 7900 / 7950 / 8800 (sli) – play dvds and heavy games at full resolution

true gamers (cost is irrelivant)
nvidia 7950 / 8800 (sli / quad sli) plus physx card – do it all without breaking a sweat

It might exaggerate things a bit, but the 7900 video cards would have more horsepower than the 7300 cards /etc….

Here’s another good breakdown on the model number maze.
