    NVIDIA's latest Windows XP ForceWare release notes on page 26(now fixed), appeared to reveal yet another new video card, the GeForce 8800GS. NVIDIA responded immediately to the rumours of this 8800GS model:

    I would have loved to see an 8800GS. Im sure they will bring it out soon, its just a marketing ploy.

    I agree Eagle. It just makes no sense not to release a card in between the 8800GTS and the 8600GTS. The gap is just too large between the 2 in terms of performance. When they say they are not releasing an 8800GS, I bet it's because they will release a card in between the 2, but name it something different, perhaps 8600GTX?
