    Although it is published online long before the NDA expires, yes the guys at Expreview managed to post it for real. The first NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT video card review can be accessed here. Full translation to English here.

    Well, judging from the indecipherable ideograms, I'd say that's because it's loading from somewhere in the far, far east.

    It took me almost no time to load. :cool:

    Those figures looks really sweet though. In some games it's equal to 8800GTX, and it's way faster than 8800GTS in all cases. If the prices are what it seems, this is a killer. :)

    EDIT:[​IMG]

    Power consumption has decreased also. Quite a lot compared to the 8800GTX.. :)

    It outruns itself!!!

    seriously, the site finally loaded up and from what I understand (the figures tho :D) this thing will be sweeeeet. Just the cooler breaks the enthusiasm a bit. I'm one of those silentfreaks and this one-slot cooler doesn't look like a silent one. I'll wait for a readable review ;)

    Happy now? I changed it. :p

    Anyhow, the cooler might be good.. But as you say, it's probably better to look at a page you'd understand..

    It says something about 34db though.. And 62℃ and 86℃. That's a bit hotter than I'd like. I assume it's the GPU they're talking about.

    I'm more than happy now ;)

    34db is either loud or deadly silent depending on the distance. So we'll have to wait for xbitlabs or maybe silentpcreview to make a nice comparison and measurement.
    Damn 86°C is hot for sure - my case is damped, so this baby will melt in there...

    Bah, I've just been offered a cheap upgrade to an 8800GTS, now I'm undecided...
    Those temps are a little scary, but I guess most people will just simple replace the stock cooler at the first opportunity, letting Nvidia save themselves some cash, and pricing the card a bit lower.
    This is going to be a brilliant card, but I can only wonder what they're going to do about it matching the 8800GTX,

    I guess that's because SP1 contains DX10.1, the most useless, and stupid update MS has ever made, but I guess it's safe to say that means there's less until DX11 shows up, which should hopefully improve image quality significantly, and actually work without killing the harder, and then pummeling it with a baseball bat while it's lying there dead on the ground.

    Seriously, obsoleting DX10 hardware, and even worse, FORCING 4xAA, so mid-range cards can't play games?

    I was going for sarcasm -- you might want to get your detector recalibrated. ;)

    And anway, ideograms don't necessarily mean it's in the far east -- these could be...

    Egyptians. Ancient Egyptians.

    Yeah, ancient Egyptians that like the latest video card hardware, that's right.

    Ancient Egyptians used hiroglyphs, which are completely different, d'uh... what are you, stoopid?
    I guess you were being sarcastic there as well
    As is the sad truth about the internet, it is an emotionless media, therefore you can't always tell when someone's being sarcastic, and the way you wrote it, actually didn't convey much sarcasm to me at the time.

    You could get two of these babies in SLI for less than what a single 8800Ultra cost, and still beat that card in most games :)

    EDIT: When Is this card supposed to be released? I decided I will get this card to pair it with an Asus Maximus Formula X38 mobo, 4 gigs of RAM and a Q6600 G0 from ClubIT

    WOW, I was about to sell my 8800GTS 640 and get one until I saw DX10 stuff at 1920x1200 with AA and AF on. lol Let's wait for a more readable review. :p

    WOW! That thing gets more 3dMark06 points with 8xAA 16xAF than mine without them and at the same price than this a year ago. Also double the score without AA/AF. Some serious piece of graphics hardware, might want one too in the future :)

    Edit: and Zalman VF900 seems to fit, so wouldn't need to buy a new aftermarket cooler either :) (just some mosfet heatsink)

    edit2: noticed those scores are quadcore ones and mine are dualcore only (it affects quite a lot).

    Seems like it got taken out, I get 404 now. Those babelfish translations still work somehow : o So thanks for the links, as I was only halfway through browsing.
