nVidia to launch G92 8800GTS tomorrow. Page: 1
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.
