More GeForce 8800 versions in February

Posted on Thursday, November 09 2006 @ 00:35:10 CET by

On Thursday NVIDIA launched the GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS. If you're waiting for cheaper versions you'll have to wait till February, as DailyTech learned today that NVIDIA will release some new G80 based cards that month. How many isn't sure but it will at least be one.
Both the GeForce 8800GTX and 8800GTS cards are based on the same G80 processor, even though the 8800GTS is a cut down of the same core; the 8800GTX features 128 unified shaders while the 8800GTS features only 96. Additionally, the 8800GTS is a smaller card, with less cooling and a lower profile PCB.

Although vendors are tight lipped about the upcoming card, it seems that the only two options the card may be is either another cut down -- which is common as yields mature -- or a multi-GPU solution similar to the GeForce 7950GX2.

A dual core like the 7950gx2 would be nice as would a 65nm shrink for a 8900 version :)
