Posted on Friday, Nov 03 2006 @ 00:01 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inq has a pretty big article with lots of information about the GeForce 8800 which will be released on November 8:
As you already know, Adrianne Curry, a Playboy bunny, America's Next Top Model star and an actor from My Fair Brady is the demo chick for G80. After we posted the story, we received a growl from Graphzilla, but we are here to serve you, our dear readers. However, this was just a story about a person who posed for the G80. Now, it's time to reveal the hardware. Everything you want to know, and don't want to wait for November 8th - lies in this article. Get your pop-corn ready; this will be a messy ride.

For starters, the 8800 launch is a hard one, so expect partners to have boards in store for the big day's press conference at 11AM on the 8th. The board delivery will go in several waves, with the first two separated by days. The boards were designed by ASUSTeK, and feature a departure from usual suspects at Micro-Star International. This is also the first ever black graphics card from nVidia. Bear in mind that every 8800GTX and 8800GTS is manufactured by ASUS. AIBs (add-in board vendors) can only change the cooling, while no overclocking is allowed on 1st gen products. Expect a very limited allocation of these boards, with UK alone getting a mediocre 200 boards..
