The XFX 7900GTX XXX Edition Video Card Arrives

It?s now been nine months since Nvidia released the 7800GTX and shortly after, the 7900GT. With 24 pipelines and 8 vertex shaders it was the undisputed king until the ATI X1800XT came along. At about the same time Nvidia released the 7800GTX 512 which kept Nvidia in the top spot. The card was great and for a couple of weeks they sold very well but the problem was that supply quickly dried up and the price went through the roof. The few that can still be found are selling for over $900. Faced with the pressures of few GTX 512?s actually shipping and competing with the new king of the hill X1900XTX, Nvidia is refreshing two new boards based off the same 24/8 architecture that they released in the original 7800GTX back in June.

With the introduction of the 7900GTX Nvidia has set their sights on besting ATI?s X1900XTX, expecting wins in a majority of the benchmarks. Can the shrink from 110nm to 90nm give Nvidia enough to compete?

Today Legit Reviews takes a look at the XFX GeForce 7900GTX 512MB DDR3 XXX Edition. This card is the fastest of FIVE GeForce 7900 GTX models that XFX is selling. The test card is shown below and is massive just like the 7800 GTX 512 series.

NVIDIA is not sending out reference cards this time around they have cards in the market and sent out partner cards for us to review.  NVIDIA also went one step futher and sent us photos of their retailers showing that their cards are in stock on the launch. It looks like the GeForce 7900 GTX will be out in force unlike the 7800 GTX 512′s that NVIDIA was unable to produce with good yields.
