techPowerUp! has already reported on NVIDIA’s 8900GTX, which is essentially an overclocked version of the G80 with 25% more shaders unlocked, but NVIDIA is also planning a dual-GPU card, the 8950GX2, as well as a GTS version and budget GT and GS models. Because there are so many details, here’s a list:
- 8950 GX2 - this will have two cores working at 550MHz with 96 shaders on each chip, and two sets of 512MB 256-bit GDDR4 memory at 2000MHz and a predicted price of $600.
- 8900 GTX - this is now being reported to run at 700MHz with 128 shaders and 768MB of 384-bit memory running at 2200MHz, priced around $550
- 8900 GTS - this version will be similar to the GTX, with 128 shaders but a lower GPU speed of 600MHz and 640MB of 320-bit memory running at 2000MHz. The price should be around $500
- 8900 GT – this will have 96 shaders and a 600MHz core, with 512MB of 256-bit GDDR3 memory running at 1800MHz, priced around $400
- 8900 GS – this should have a core clocked at 550MHz with 96 shaders and 256-bit memory at 1600MHz in sizes of either 256MB or 512MB. This should cost about $250
