    New 8800GT BenchMarks Scores Shown !!!!!!!!!

    use IE only as FF throws a wobble.

    http://topic.expreview.com/2007-10-2...4539d6255.htm

    system load (W)
    idle: 8800GT uses 18W less than an 8800GTS and 52W less than an 8800GTX
    load: 8800GT uses 20W less than the 8800GTS and 84W less than the GTX

    (all other components kept the same)
    overclocking: stock cooler, stock volts: 600MHz stock to 730MHz OC.

    performance in games is generally between 2900XT and 8800GTX. Beats 8800GTS in ALL tests.

    Here are some pics take from source linked above.

    I tell you what... from those benches there I would assume that it is a much better buy that the 2900XT.. It even sounds like a much better buy than the GTX.. Although slightly slower. You could probably get 2 of these for the price of one GTX..

    Sounds like a great card, anyone know the price of it yet??? I have heard in $300 range... ????

    Given how long the 8800GTS has been out I doubt it.

    Also the GTS should be a getting a speed bump soon in terms of extra stream processors.

    Looks a good card though as long as the price is right.

    Estimated........$199US for 256MB version.......£249US for 512MB version.........I have got to say, damn nice benches but a couple of them in my mind are almost un-beleivable, I am not suggesting that they are untrue or inaccurate, just damn....well....unbeleivable! Look at some of those tests at MAX resolutions with AA/AF enabled and look just how much higher the 8800GT scores than the 2900XT with 1GB DDR4!!!!!!!! I really would not have beleived that is possible TBH without seeing it here.

    Wow! A full 2000 points more than the 640mb GTS! Awesome, I'm getting one, or a rv670, dunno yet. I'm not dissapointed in my current GTS at all! I say let the damn graphics companies keep pushing out new stuff!

    Wouldn't it be nice if Nvidia gave us GTS owners a patch to unlock some processors? Well... it's Nvidia, I wouldn't count on it.

    personally these results, if legit, are hard to come to terms with. not once has the "GT" variation ever trumped the flagship card(s) from nVIDIA so owners of the GTX and Ultra's can remain happy. however, the 640MB GTS sure as hell comes close to being a flagship by a cost ($350-400) not that far removed from the GTX. if the prices of the existing GTS cards don't fall below this thing so that i can SLI up my existing solution without paying a premium for a card that gets its arse kicked by the "GT" i will be none to happy..

    I think in this case then you (and I) will probably be "non too happy", future 640MB 8800GTS customers will be looked after a little as they will also get 112 SP's to give the 8800 a boost in performance as the model is being upgraded... to open a little gap between the GT and GTS, it seems highly likely that the 320MB GTS will be dropped sometime soon. Whichever way you look at it, this is a mid priced card that appears to perform in the mid high sector which has gotta be good for us, it uses less power, produces less heat and is much better bang for buck from the green camp, it would appear that NVidia can learn something from ATi! it remains to be seen how this card performs against the forthcoming 2950pro but my guess is it will at least be a match for it, as I said, just a guess, if that is the case, pricing here is the key.

    It's amazing! OMFG I never been so wowed! The 320-bit doesn't really help all that much I guess in the GTS. The GT still outshines it with a 256-bit bus.. I'm telling my bro about this, he'll be pissed.

    Can't the GT run with a GTS in SLI though? I heard that somewhere.

    The new GTS is gonna have 128 shaders? I thought it was only gonna have 112, just with 320mb or 640mb of ram and a 320-bit bus.
