nVidia to launch G92 8800GTS tomorrow.

"nVidia launching the card by mid-day european time."

Search News

Nvidia have announced that they will be launching the G92 version of the 8800GTS. I cant wait to see what a retail sample of this card can do with, particularly after the great performance of the 8800GT and its great value price.

Nvidia will launch Geforce 8800GTS 512MB card by midday Central European time on December 11. Nvidia simply likes to launch stuff on Tuesday as it gives the PR bosses some time to recover from the weekend.

The new card is based on G92 chip with eight clusters enabled and 128 Shader units. The reference card works at 650MHz core, 1650MHz Shader clock and 1940MHz DDR3 memory clock.

The card comes with dual slot cooler and it is much quieter than the single slot G92 based cards, it will end up a bit faster than G92 based 8800 GT but this will heavily depend on the resolution.

We've seen some listed for around €330 which sounds quite attractive, but it will also be interesting to see how this card is doing versus G92 based 8800GT at 700MHz clock. We will be ready to tell you more about the performance tomorrow.

Ive managed to speak with him regarding the comments mentioned here and hes agreed to up the budget to £450 so hopefully this gives more flexibility.

Will be keeping my eye on any ebay bargains - altho ive seen some stuff there go for the same price if not more than buying direct from say OC, Aria etc....

Hopefully now maybe a core2 1.86 maybe possible and semi decent card?

Do appreciate your comments girls and boys finding them useful

Thanks In Advance

£450 is a much better sum. Gimme 5...

Edit: Whats this machine going to be used for? And will you be overclocking it or not?

This is what I reckon for 450... It doesnt include a mouse+kb+speakers but you can easily spec one in for not much money. This should allow you to push a decent speed from the CPU too.

Also i'm not really sure why I went for 1GB ram... 2gb would cost £20 more at most.

Getting the money next week so will keep a look out for any bargains in the meantime.

I assume you can recommend the motherboar you chose > MSI P35 - i was looking at cheaper Asrock boars for approx £40 but assume these are not as good?

its easily do-able i built my rig (customising a prebuilt model) for £250 but that was excluding moniter, keyboard, mouse and OS (os would of cost £60 on top but i have the disc to do it myself)

MSI are good price/performance and a review indicates that you should get a fairly decent overclock out of it... which is critical for the best value out of the cheaper intel chips!
