Three GeForce 8800 GT cards compared - it's a must buy

Posted on Monday, Oct 29 2007 @ 01:00 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
VR Zone just published a pretty long review in which they compare a GeForce 8800 GT from MSI, Sparkle and Inno3D.
Today, we will see the Geforce 8800GT 512MB cards, otherwise known as the G92 flood the market at a fantastic SRP of USD$249 (SGD$370~), successfully replacing the 8800GTS 320MB which falls into the same price point, and at the same time, outperforms the 8800GTS 320/640MB by a good 10~15% in most games. We will also see Nvidia employing a single slot cooling solution instead of the familiar beefy two-slot cooling that G80 sport. This is largely due to the reduction in die size, many thanks to the reduced die fabrication process to 65nm, 15nm down from the 80nm process used in the G80s. With the introduction of single slot cooling, many will be thankful as they will have the option to stuff one of these little monsters down microATX cases with slot cooling restrictions, especially on those mini-cube PCs from Shuttle and likes which cannot do with 2 slot graphic cards. In this review, we will be touching on high-resolution wide screen gaming at 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 in Windows Vista, indulging in DX10 goodness...
Check it out at VR Zone. The reviewer concludes the GeForce 8800 GT is a truly amazing graphics cards that offers great performance, even at 1920 x 1200 pixel resolutions. The card even beats the GeForce 8800 GTX in some benchmarks and it also uses a lot less power than the GTS and GTX.

We're not sure what ATI's upcoming GPU will offer but if you need a new graphics card right now the GeForce 8800 GT won't disappoint you - this card offers a lot of bang per buck. It should be available later today for about $249.
