The 65 nanometre process is finally working, and we are not surprised to see retail prices around $60 or 60 for a 256MB GDDR-3 card with two DVI ports and a S-VHS out.
And if you're asking yourself what is the performance offered by the card, a reliable mole landed a screenshot in our inbox:
Screenshot speaks for itself, at least when synthetic testing is concerned...
As usual, take this result with a grain of salt as it wasn't tested by us, but all in all - not too shabby for a 7300 price-competing part, right? And sadly for Nvidia, it is a bit faster than its FUD slide claiming 2400XT will do 1262 3Dmarks and that 8400GS will score 1600. Well, that was a true part when 2400Pro is concerned, but 2400Pro costs $45.
Bear in mind that the performance of both relies on getting as powerful a CPU as possible, and all of these leaked benchmark results are usually conducted on very powerful (and expensive) processors. µ
