8xxx series

Specifications and prices have been released for the 8300 and 8600 series of NVIDIA graphics cards that are due out this year, specifically expected to be out this March. The 8xxx series are the first graphics cards to support DirectX 10, the new 3D rendering technology from Microsoft, which is often used in 3D video games. A nice little chart has been posted with general specifications and prices:

Name Shaders Core(MHz) Memory(MHz) Memory(MB)
Memory(buss) Price
8800GTX 128 575 1800 768 384bit $599
8800GTS 96 500 1600 640 320bit $399
8800GTS
96 500 1600 320 320bit $299
8600 Ult. 64 500 1400
<512 256bit $179
8600 GT 48 350 1200 <256 256bit $129
8300 GT
32 500 1200 <256 128bit <$99
8300 GS
24 500 1000 <256 128bit <$79

We can only hope that those prices are right as they seem generally fair and affordable. Plus, the prices will of course drop after release which opens the door for even cheaper prices.

Thanks to PP Mguire for the link.
