NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX

NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GTX is the predecessor of the 7950 GTX and has still a very good DirectX 9 performance. The card enalbes the user to play e.g. Doom3 in 1600x1200 fluently. The card was used in large notebooks (because of heat issues).

The chip also features the PureVideo Technology but has less features as the PureVideo engine in the current 8600M GT chip. > Comparison of PureVideo features
