Introduction While my experience with various hardware companies pales in comparison to the heavy hitters out there, I have compiled a short list of companies that I've been put off by. PNY is one of those companies, but time does pass, and I sincerely hope that they've made strides in addressing some of the issues since I last encoutered them. This article is not about my personal history with PNY. It is going to take a look at their take on the GeForce 7900GS GPu. The 7900GS comes in just under the $200 mark, and it's that price point or less where most video cards are sold. While the GeForce 8800's are now available, most of us can't drop $500 on a video card. Given the close performance to the 7900GT, the 7900GS could appear to be a slight rehash of the same GPU. While that can be debated all day, the GS is coming in anywhere from $40-60, in most cases, less than the GT. As I don't have a GT available to test for myself, I'm not going to try to argue one way or the other. That's something that a consumer should read up on and decide for themself. Before we dive in, here's the highlight's of PNY's Verto 7900GS: -450MHz Core Clock -1.32GHz Memory Clock -256-bit Memory data path -20 pixels per clock -256MB GDDR3 -PCIe x16 Interface -DVI x 2 -S-Video/HD-Out PNY also offers a 3-year warranty, if you register the card. If not, the warranty goes for only 1 year. While this is certainly longer than most people will likely use the card, eVGA and XFX, for example, offer lifetime warranties, assuming one registers their card. PNY does seem a little behind the times here.
