I GOT THE SPECS FOR THE GeForce 7800 GTX (G70):
0.11 micron process TSMC
430Mhz core / 1.4GHz 256MB GDDR3 memory
256-bit memory interface
38.4GB/s memory bandwidth

Intellisample 4.0 technology
64-bit FP texture filtering & blending
NVIDIA SLI Ready (7800 GTX only[:@])
DX 9.0 / SM 3.0 & OpenGL 2.0 supported
G70 comes with 3 models; GTX, GT and Standard
Single card requires min. 400W PSU with 12V rating of 26A
SLI configuration requires min. 500W PSU with 12V rating of 34A
Launch : 22nd of June
I am also quoting the following from Softpedia:
nVidia will present the next generation of GPUs (graphics processing unit) with SLI support during the Computex Taipei event, organized between May 31 and June 4 in Taiwan.
Sources close to the producer have pointed out that NVidia G70 will offer triple performances compared to the most powerful video solution, the GeForce 6800. The new series of G70 cards will be built on 0.11 microns by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). ATI has chosen the 90
nanometer graving technology for its R520 graphic processors.
Motherboard producers had to sign a confidentiality agreement with nVidia, and so, no information regarding the new graphics chip has been made public. Of course, nVidia was not too eager to enlarge on the subject, the producer being well-known for its strategy to avoid any comments about products that have not been released yet.
Still, there is information pointing out the second half of the third quarter as the retailing date of the G70 model; the announced price is 549 USD.
Today, nVidia found out that starting with August 1 it won’t produce anymore graphic solutions for Xbox, Microsoft ceasing production of the Xbox console and focusing only on the Xbox 2.
For nVidia, the collaboration with Microsoft meant excellent publicity and substantial profits. In the last time though, the company has approached new domains, and Microsoft is not anymore among the 10 most important clients of the graphic solution producer
don't know if the specs are correct, and if the source is reliable. I got the from a chinese site, this one
