NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB details leaked

Posted on Thursday, February 08 2007 @ 18:34:31 CET by

The Inq got their hands on some more information about the upcoming GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB graphics card which will be unveiled on February 12.
The card itself is exactly the same as a GTS/640 with half the memory. It has the same specs, it's a 90 nanometre chip with 681M transistors, 500/1200/1600MHz core/stream/memory speeds with a 320b memory interface. It has 20 ROPs and will do the same theoretical 24GT/s. Yawn. It also remains a two slot solution. For pricing, it is aiming at the $299-329 range versus $399-440 for the 640MB flavor and $599-649 for the GTX. Not hugely bad, but I would spring for the extra 320MB personally.

Interestingly in its benchmark notes, it strongly cautions against AMD CPUs, and recommends that you only use Intel XE level CPUs. More interesting, it recommends two sticks of Corsair memory, good stuff but interesting that it names a company. More interesting is that neither of the choices, a 1066 and 1142MHz variants, are Nvidia certified, but several other types of Corsair RAM is. Its list of approved PSUs is also curious, it left out many partners, OCZ and Corsair are not on the OK list. Odd.
