This is set to replace Geforce 7300 from the market. Nvidia is really having problems making a real impact on the entry-level market but maybe will have better luck with this introduction.
The chip is a cut down version of the G80 and will probably come up with some odd memory controller number. It will support Shader Model 4.0, the unified way, and it will work in SLI.
We expect this chip to be announced around CeBIT time, in March. It's important because it will help the DirectX 10 market to expand by embracing people who do not want to spend a fortune on graphics. µ
