    Nordic Hardware has posted some very detailed lists of hardware details regarding what will be entry-level and midrange DX10 cards from the green camp (NVIDIA).
    • The 8600 Ultra card will come with 64 Shaders, clocked at 500MHz. It will also have up to 512MB of 256 bit memory clocked at 1400MHz DDR. It is expected to retail for around $179.
    • The 8600 GT will come with 48 shaders, clocked at 350MHz. It will have up to 256MB of 256-bit memory, clocked at 1200MHz DDR. It should retail for $129.
    • The 8300 GT will have 32 shaders at 500MHz, along with no more than 256MB of 128-bit memory clocked at 1200MHz DDR. It is expected to cost around $99.
    • The 8300 GS will "only" have 24 shaders, clocked around 500MHz. It will have up to 256MB of 128 bit memory, clocked at 1000MHz DDR. The card shouldn't cost much more than $79.

    Looks very nice, and I as an AGP user hope that there will be NO AGP version. Die AGP, die!

    People who want to upgrade in steps can always use the ASRock DUAL VSTA motherboard which supports AGP/PCIe DDR1/DDR2.

    For real, ya'll need to get off this die agp die crap, Im sick and tired of hearing it. AGP will probably be around for a good while longer, I mean, its not like they can kill it, and with peeps still keeping to it, they'd be crazy not to still support it in some form or fashion ::Rofl:: Anyways, to the topic at hand, these are nice cards and priced very well. Id like to see what DAaMit has up their sleeves when the R600 comes out and their lower priced cards. Kind of hard to match Nvidia on this if these prices are true.

    I made this picture for another Forum, enjoy.

    Just note that these arent Vec4 shaders like we have on the X1900s or the 7900s, but actually scalar processors like we have on the 8800s. Scalars can only do one thing at a time, and Vec4 can do.. 4. However the clocks of the SPs are much higher (for some reason.... ?)

    8600gt should be able to o/c to around 8600Ultra performance I'm guessing. This seems all nice, I think Im going to go for the 8600Ultra when I build my next rig. Hopefully that will be enough to play Crysis on pretty much max details and alil AA.

    That would cost 350$. For that much u can get an 8800 GTS 640MB. Then later on another one. The whole point in SLi is buying one card now and another later.

    These cards look rather nice on paper. The 8600GT should be a good overclocker, but it depends on voltage controls and whether or not the card has dynamic voltage control. Only problem i see with the GT's is the fact that the memory bus is only 128bit.. I guess they realize that us enthusiests will overclock, and they had to create a true product difference.

    Nope. Go here-
    http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

    And click 8800 drivers. You will notice there are none for Vista, there are a lot of people upset over it right now.

    Edit: just saw the drivers were leaked. Still no DX10 games to test with, and thats what I really want to see. Crysis, anyone?
