GeForce 8800 GTX to be phased out in January

FUD Zilla reports NVIDIA will kill the GeForce 8800 GTS and 8800 GTS 640MB lineups in January. This is a pretty logical move as both graphics cards become largely redundant with the release of the GeForce 8800 GT and because NVIDIA needs to make room for a new high-end part.
The Geforce 8800 GTX will probably be remembered as one of the most successful products in Nvidia's history and if you got one a year ago, you are a happy man even now, more than a year after it launched. This card still plays all top games at top settings.

The Geforce 8800GTX and GTS 640MB, together with 8800 Ultra are the only cards that can support Triple SLI, but we don’t think that Nvidia will have a mainstream success with this expensive setup and the new dual G92 based D8E is coming just weeks later. Tri SLI would be much better if it launched back in October / November, like the company originally planned.
