Nvidia 8800GT

After nearly half a year of speculation about new high end Nvidia cards, the 8800GT has appeared whilst not high end it will be replacing the lower end GTS (320M

From some of the reviews it contends with the GTX thanks to its 112 shaders, only 16 behind the GTX. It has a faster pixel and texture fill rate too. Its clock, shader and memory speed are equal or higher than the GTX and it's a 65nm core not 90nm as all other Nvidia cards to date are, resulting is less heat so higher clock speeds.

It is one of the first cards to be classed as a PCI-E 2.0 card, giving more bandwidth to the cards.

It is expected to be released late October early November.

This is not Nvidias new high end card that's rumoured to be the G92 core whilst this is the G96. It is still part of the 8-series cards.

The card on Foxconn's site

The card is not yet listed on Nvidia's site.

It only has a 256 mem interface though... From what I have read:

The 8800GT beats the current 8800GTS, both flavours (320/640).

The new 8800GTS beats the old GTX.

So the new GTX = pwnage!

I need the new GTX/GTS to power games at 1920x1600 res. Damn monitor!Personally I'm waiting for ATi to answer, then pick up the better of the two

Wish people would get a freakin move on. W8ing for Intel on their cpu, w8ing on nVidia on their cards, w8ing for AMD with their cpus, w8ing on US suppliers to stock Abit iX38s..

W8ing ! This Oct/Nov is about to turn into Nov, and it better flooping not turn into Nov/Dec !

Fudge!

Their G96 is just a mistake, its definatly G92.

The new GTS wont be 65nm but itll have 12more SP's.

Its assumed teh 8800gt will have less rops/texture units then the 8800gts, but theres also the memory and the 320bit vs 256bit fight aswell.

8800gt wont be as good as the new 8800gts.

Where was it I saw the 8800GT shoot it`s load over all the present 8800 cards, include gtx/ultra, @ 3dmark06 ? By a good 5/6/7k we`re talking.

Might`ve been speculative lies tho, see alot of them about in todays market, especially from 2bit sources. Best thing I seen close to actual troof tho lol

The 8800GT won't beat the 8800GTX or Ultra by that much as it has less shaders. It does do some stuff faster though

Supposedly, the 8800gt will outperform the current 640mb and 320mb 8800gts, at a MUCH lower cost. All reports I've seen say its got 112SP's, but none of it is confirmed by nvidia or any of their partners.

Therefore nvidia are releasing a new model of the 8800GTS, with 640mb version only, but with 112SP's. Still 90nm.

Even though they'll both have 112sp's, the GTS has other advantages such as 320bit over 256bit, 640mb of memory over 512mb, and probably more ROP's and texture units.

None of that is confirmed by anyone official, but several different sites have "tested" their cards and come up with similar but different benchmarks results on 3dmark06.

Don't believe anything that puts this card over the GTX/Ultra, it wont beat them. The 8800GTS as it is is being phased out and ceasing production, the 8800gtx is going on though.

Supposedly its going on until a 65nm DUAL 8800gt card comes out next year, a GX2 style card. 8800gt will be closer to a GTX then the 8800gts atm so it'll be a nice improvement over an ultra.

Then again none of that in confirmed

Ill try find some links.
