On Wednesday, we brought you news of ATI's future mobile graphics solutions . Well according to our source, NVIDIA will be launching GeForce Go 8800 GS in May and GeForce Go 8800 GTX in July to compete against ATi's mobile DX10 M76XT GPU.

GeForce Go GS is pretty interesting as we don't see it on the desktop SKUs yet. Looking at the Device IDs for the desktop G80 SKUs, we saw 0x0191 "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX" and 0x0193 "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS" but 0x0190 and 0x0192 are missing. Usually 0x0190 is the most high end SKU so it could be 8800 Ultra and 0x192 could be 8800 GS.

Thus the reason Intel decided to EOL it's PCI-based card and upgraded it to a PCI-X platform, but there is STILL a market for a PCI dual port NIC which needs to be filled. Hence myself needing one, there's a market for it as I'm sure I'm not the only one needing a dual port NIC which uses PCI. Now a PCI-E dual port NIC would be about the greatest thing since sliced bread, use up some of these seemingly useless slots on my mobo.

Intel's expi9402pt? (£90 over here lol).

Onboard gigabit's kinda filled the gap in the pci market. It usually bypasses the pci bus and goes straight into the chipset avoiding the bottle neck.

Yeah, a bit expensive as it's about the same price over here $175-200. I guess I really fail to see where NIC's incur that much cost, same with the Killer? So you can buy single port NIC's for $5, but that extra port justifies a price jump of $175? WTH? And I would assume that the Killer's CPU is probably powerful enough to handle the second port without problems. This would be a good time for Killer to come answer some more questions :p

The intel's expensive because it's a new product and it's going to have demand. The Killer.... because Bigfoot have an overblown self efficacy? ;)

its the technology of it. Most $5 NIC's are cheap, where as server NICs like intel or boardcom have the TCP offload engine, or teaming.

w00t Phnom, I just found a used OEM expi9402pt on eBay for $65 and picked it up :D Bidding on 2 more cable modems now too, w00tage!

Now your talking. But your board SHOULD have one gigabit ethernet port right? Just get another gigabit card and use that extra PCI slot.

Great news Fraggles .. i take it they are Moto Surfboards/Techie friendly

Next week on OCN: Frag opens up a hosting company and the RIAA Move in next door

I read the reveiw and I must say, im not impressed.
Nice review, good read but the "NPU" is pants... :(

Good stuff! :D.

Nice review.

One thing ...

A piece of hardware such as this will not have much effect on your online gaming ping times by itself. It can't.

Ping times/lag are a function of the network you are on as a whole. And you only have control over very little of it.
Once it has left your network it is out of your hands.

You want low "online" gaming ping times?
Here's what you have to do.

1) Get the fastest NIC you can afford, Gigabit etc. Fiber optics is good. Then get a second one and install the both of them.
In Windows you can "bridge" the two of them and in effect double you connection speed. But ONLY on you local network.
In Linux/Unix you can use "bonding" to accomplish the same thing. Mac users? Don't have a clue, so good luck.

2) Get a network switch that matches you new NICs.

3) Make sure that the cables that you connect your computer to your network are "top of the line". Gold connectors, etc.

4) Pay an arm and a leg for as fast an internet connection as you can. Anything as fast as YOUR network hardware is good.
Faster then it is, is better.

5) Hope that you are really getting the bandwidth you are paying for. Remember that most bandwidth is measured in bits, not bytes. Providers have been known to stretch the truth when they tell you what speeds you are getting/paying for.

And last but not least, if you beleave in such things ...

Pray that the server has at least as good networking/bandwidth as you. That there are not to many hops between you and the server. That the weather is good everywhere between you and the server. And that about another 100 things that you have no control over, go your way.

On a local network, such as a LAN Party, it can help. A bit. Anything that reduces the amount of work on you system can help. Like an FPU, or a GPU reduces the load on your CPU. Like a faster FSB or more memory. Multi-processors or multi-core processors. Can and will help just as much.

Sorry people.

But there is one thing that hardware like this does, ok there are two.
The first is it looks soooooooo cool. Second and most importantly, is the physic value. At your local LAN Party, IF your buddies think that this new NIC CAN or WILL give you an advantage over them, it has. Not it WILL give you an advantage, it HAS.

So show it off. Brag about what the maker says about it. Then go and frag their sorry butts. They deserve it. And so do you.
