In a run-up to the launch of the GeForce 8600, Nvidia has prepared a bridge between upcoming mainstream 8600 for US$199 and high-end 8800GTS cards for US$449. The bridge's name is the 8800GTS 320MB.
Nvidia has simply reduced the amoun of memory to ten 32MB chips instead of the current 64MB ones, and cut the price by US$150 dollars to an affordable US$299. The card still has an G80 GPU working at 500MHz with 96 scalar shaders clocked at 1.2GHz. Memory clock has also remained the same, 800MHz DDR (1.6GHz) which yields 64GB/s of bandwidth.
According to our source we will be seeing these on the shelves and available in around 10 days time.
