NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS Photo NVIDIA G92 Photo
The GeForce 8800 GS was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in January 2008. Built on the 65 nm process, and based on the G92 graphics processor, in its G92-150-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 10.0. The G92 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 324 mm² and 754 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce 9800 GT Rebrand, which uses the same GPU but has all 128 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce 8800 GS to reach the product's target shader count. It features 96 shading units, 48 texture mapping units and 12 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 384 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 550 MHz, memory is running at 800 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 105 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. GeForce 8800 GS is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 229 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
